I have to agree with gatorgan. Get any shotgun with a 28" barrel so you have an adequate sight plane, just lead the birds. You have to lead ducks much further than other game birds. A wood duck cruising through the tops of the tree is flying 70 mph. Once you shoot wood ducks seem to have an afterburner. Wood ducks are small but they are my favorite duck to hunt and eat.

Thanks all, after some research and reading reviews i think i am going to go with the benelli supernova. It has all the essential things and has a great feel to it as well. Once i get it and test it out a bit i will post a small review or a few pictures. Any other tips for waterfowl?

Good choice...I would have got the regular nova...not a whole lot of differences but still a sweet gun

Never shoot in the center of a flock of Geese (unless you love hefty fines), have good blind, and keep warm (lots of clothes).

870 is a good all around gun ,I own one myself. An auto loader is just more practical for what the gun is going to be used for. Personally I would use this opportunity to get one of those amazing over unders. But that's just bc I have bin looking for a reason to pick one up. Plus they are a little out of the op's budget.

Yeah, my older brother is in the market for an over-under as well. I think a pump is the right choice for my first shotgun (most practical) and the benelli seems to have great reviews along with a great swing and feel to me. My other question and i know this is not a hunting thread but can some one explain to me how the duck stamps work? I understand i need to get one but do not know anything else any help would be great.

Wherever you buy your hunting license you can get them. Bring your license, and ask them for Duck Stamps. They'll charge you a little cash, and you can get your stamps. Without these you cannot hunt Ducks.
