3 frame 12 gauges are great and underrated in my opinion

Oh those tasty mergansers!! Even taste more like fish than fish do. They make a great fish chowder. If you're a bear!!

Beauty is only skin deep with merganzers.

I got into red-breasted mergansers this morning. They always put a smile on my face and a dent in my shell box. They decoy beautifully and provide lots of shooting and retrieving opportunities. Their arrival is typically a sign that good duck hunting (divers!) is getting underway.

Lightly sautéed in olive oil, mergansers make wonderful and healthful dog food.

I wouldn't waste one of my precious bismuth or Nice Shot shells on one of them.

I killed a pretty drake merganser years ago and had it mounted. The mount was nice but my wife said it was ugly and not a duck so it had to go. I gave it to a friend who loved it. End of story....

We almost always let them pass, even though they are trout fry killing machines. One friend of mine makes it his highest priority to kill as many as he can for just that reason.
Spending $3/shell to collect some dog food is not optimal.....unless you have a new to you gun ......and its first light.....and they come screaming into your spread and........well..... then there is a high probability the dogs are getting a fish duck treat at dinner
