Not being much of a duck hunter, I just don't know. I know Ankeny Preserve is just south of Salem. Don't know mif you can hun t Adair or not. Hunting on Sauvies Island but I think you need reservation's there and it's west of Portland a ways. There's another preserve by Rickreall but I don't know what the deal is there.
Seem's when I was a kid a buddy of mine used to float The Luckiamute from Helmic Park and shoot ducks. Good luck.
Accuracy. What an incredible way to give yourself a true advantage.
Go to your club and get a bunch of guys together - and put a target out there at 250 meters. Break out the deer rifles and see who can shoot a decent group, even off of the bench, at this distance. I think you will be shocked at how few can do it.
So - with that in mind, I recently set out to try to develop a semi-custom rifle that I could afford and that would shoot - repeatedly - at MOA.
I started with a platform that I love...
