Rig’Em Right – Bloodline Elite dog vest
Ducks, in general, prefer to wait for the most unpleasant, colder conditions when they present themselves to your local water. You need to keep your duck warm between rounds. This vest from Rig’Em Right does just that. Five sizes are available so you can get the perfect fit for close-to-skin warmth, increased flotation, and protection from brush, brambles, brambles and whatever is nasty.

Sectional waterfowl – Blind hunting dog
This dog awning from Cupped Waterfowl is perfect for transportation to and from the field thanks to sturdy shoulder straps and a lightweight design. A low profile and straps to hold brush and stubble make this awning easy to hide, while a front and rear entry gives your dog two-way entry and exit for the retrieval of downed game. Available in RealTree Timber or Mossy Oak Bottomland.

Jargon Game Calls – Live Duck Call
Jargon’s Living Duck can articulate the entire mallard hen vocabulary, from the sweetest, roughest quacks to those loud, twangy quacks that will attract any drakes in the county. It has a large exhaust port that incorporates the perfect amount of back pressure with every call. These features make the call extremely easy to place, but still allow advanced note articulation for both novice and professional callers.

Orvis – Wader & Wader PRO Boots
For duck hunting at the start of the season, a pair of lightweight waders is very useful. The Orvis PRO waders and Pro Wading boots are perfect for women looking for an athletic fit wader. The Cordura shell overlay provides extreme durability while the anatomically correct neoprene booties provide the perfect fit. Kangaroo-style fleece-lined hand warmer pockets keep your fingers warm in cold weather, and an external storage pocket keeps your gear close at hand. The Pro Wading Boots (sold separately) give hunters the rubber grip of the Michelin Outdoor Extreme outsole for freezing mornings and a 3D-molded OrthoLite X25 sockliner for support.
