Default 10 Gauge Ammo Question

I'm curious to hear what guys shooting a 10 gauge shoot at waterfowl. I'll shoot geese and on occasion ducks. I'm not really all that concerned about having too much for ducks. I'd like to just take one flavor of shells. Thanks.

#3s if you can find them, but you might have to settle for 2s

#4's for ducks & #2's & BB's for geese.

Either way, shoot'em in the head !

Take a look at the HeviMetal 10 Gauge Ammo....I would use
larger shot size for the geese and smaller for your ducks. Remember with these HeviMetal shells you will be able to shoot further due
to the density of the shells.

12 ga 3-1/2" -------- at least as much "punch" as a 10 ga.

I still can't figure out why they call the traps "Live Traps". All the Racoon and Possum that I catch in mine never come out that way.
