When you go out on a duck hunt, typically, how much ammo do you carry?

When I hunt the Bay or make a day trip to Lake Erie/LSC etc, I typically carry 2-boxes (50 rounds). I seldom, if ever, get into my second box.

I usually have 3-4 boxes in my blind bag. Rarely ever shoot more than 12 shells unless im shooting poorly. and i randomly throw a box into bag every week or so just to have the ammo.

I always try to have too much. Blind bag usually always has about 2 boxes of ammo. I've ran out of shells when I was younger and a poor shot, not fun.

I usually take a box at most. I figure if I can't shoot my 6 ducks with 25 shots I'm done for the day. This morning I only took 9 shells though, really makes you think about the shot.

Have an ammo box that holds four boxes in the boat + a bandoleer that holds a box...when the shell box gets down to two boxes, i'll get some more. Never need that much, but I never run out of shells either. It also comes in handy when people hunting with me might run low or forget thier shells

I carry two boxes. Sometimes shooting at a crippled duck that keeps diving and when it pops up swim like a snake going across the water, I have used a few shell trying to get them.

I carry extra to sell to my buddy when he runs short....price really goes up if the shooting is good. I might even weasel a lunch out of it!

Two boxes of Kent #3s in the blind bag when I'm hunting puddle ducks, 4 boxes of #2s when layout hunting. Never even come close to running out on puddlers but have run out on all day layout hunts. Hate when that happens!
