The Best of Waterfowl
Winchester Life returns to the peak of waterfowl season. We take a look back at Casey Keefer’s unbelievable bird hunt under a Canadian sky, while Chris Keefer and crew experience a feathered frenzy back home in Michigan.
Getting feathers to fall can be a hard-core task when it comes to waterfowl hunting. As the weather shifts from bad to worse, waterfowl warriors know it’s time to scan the skies. Sleet, snow, rain, hail, and cold push the birds to use their wings, and hunters head out to bring them down.
Hunters can’t hunt empty-handed, or they’ll come home empty-handed, too. Coffin blinds, calls, camouflage, waders, decoys…The tools of the trade for a dedicated waterfowl hunter are crucial. The most important tool? The one that connects with the bird. Enter Winchester Blind Slide ammunition.
Devastating on ducks and geese, Blind Side ammunition is specifically designed to beat the elements and pack an accurate punch. The Drylok Super Steel System keeps moisture away from your shot charge for dependable ignition with every squeeze of the trigger. To deliver precision and performance, the groundbreaking HEX Shot is stacked like bricks and hits waterfowl like tumbling bricks, minimizing over-penetration and maximizing energy transfer. Blind Side ammunition is loaded with the patented Diamond Cut Wad, which has three rear-deploying petals that stabilize the shot cup in flight for tighter patterns.
The versatility of Blind Side ammunition when paired with a Winchester SX4 shotgun and the proper choke tube improves any duck and goose hunting setup.
