    I'm an Ambassador for Kent. (they don't call it Pro Staff anymore). I get a good price on my ammunition! Some pictures I post are taken for KENT Cartridge Canada to use for their social media and other promotional purposes. I include them here because I set up my photo and don't take another without the Kent products.
    I've used the Fasteel for 20 years, only rep'd for this year. Actually, I've promoted Kent Fasteel for 20 years because I feel it's the best ammo I can shoot for consistant results. I've only received a price break this year as an Ambassador. I promoted it in the past because I find I get more birds down with less crippled or winged birds on my days afield. I shoot Fasteel 1560fps in 3" #4 and #2 for ducks. BB for geese. We all spend a lot of money on equipment to hunt waterfowl, shooting quality ammo should top the list.

    I'll second that on Kent I use 3" 1560 BB on geese & No. 3 on ducks with 5 for pheasant and 6 for grouse usually with a modified choke. All hit hard & fast with good clean kills.

    I've never tried the Kent shells before,,,,sound like good shells! What I have discovered is that I've had far, far fewer cripples since I put a PatternMaster duck choke on my shotgun. Shortens up the string of pellets from 20' down to 7' according to test results. I've been using Score #3's this past year.

    My buddy using 1 1/4 oz shells whereas I've been using 1 1/8 oz. What do you guys like for shot weight?

    I got lucky and Marc invited me out on a hunt last weekend. Was awesome. Got my dog her first exposure to geese. I think she had a serious (WTF) moment as its only been ducks over water so far.

    That first goose retrieve can be quite hilarious and one worth getting on video. I know because my 50 pound griff kept stepping on the lower wing. lol

    That dog is gripping it in a good spot. I’ve only had a few dogs that did well with geese, my current lab knows where to grip them!
