Not lead, but small steel #6 or #7 rounds for cripples? I have found they are cheap and worth the effort, but some will say shoot whatever you have in the gun and not worth the hassle, 8 shots later, they tell me to get em with mine.

As long as I'm just hunting with steel, all my rounds are the same.
When I'm using my $25 per box heavier than lead shells, I always tote some extra steel with me in the event of a cripple.

I consider reaching into my bag, grabbing and chambering a steel round, and shooting a swimmer with that round to be a whole lot less hassle than keeping up with a dog.

I shoot a Kicks High Flyer and don't many cripples. When I do, it certainly don't take me 8 shots.

You're forgetting the whole "retrieve" part...killing the bird is only the beginning.

Keeping up with a dog is nothing compared to when you can watch all your time and money swimming out to do what y'all have been working on all summer. It's half the hunt.

I'm not down playing the fun of hunting with a good dog, as I
have had the enjoyment of doing it a few times.
Just saying that personally the time and money that needs to be spent on a duck dog isn't there for me, so I'll keep water swatting at retrieving my own birds.

zara spook and a zebco 33?
Until you hook into a big can that is belly up and that gamkasu trebble sinks in, makes for an interesting fight when you have large ice flows on the Potomac;)

As far as shooting a lot to finish one, guess none has taken a buffle head on the water, that low profile makes them harder to hit than most.:shoot:
