Farbarm XLR5 Waterfowl

Farbarm XLR5 Waterfowl

A Pulse Piston gas system progressively moves the action to soften recoil and will blast through five shells in 0.31 seconds. The Tribore HP barrel gentles the shot for excellent patterns, and you can shoot steel shot through their extra-full tube. The receiver has a Cerakote finish that laughs at wet weather. MSRP: $1,750 (RH); $1,935 (LH) | fabarmusa.com


Benelli Super Black Eagle 3

Benelli Super Black Eagle 3

Tested all over North America, this spiffed-up third-generation semi-auto—now available in lefty—has a big loading port to throw in a shell when things heat up. The large bolt release is hard to miss and loading the magazine is slick. The trigger guard is oversized with a no-fumble safety and deeper pistol grip. The SBE 3’s Crio-treated barrels and chokes throw optimal patterns with all shells. MSRP: $1,999 | benelliusa.com


Sitka Delta Wader

Sitka Delta Wader

Built with reinforced knees and shin pads, water-resistant zippered storage pockets, and high-hand warmer pockets, these high-end waders are available in Timber and Marsh with or without a front zipper. A lifetime investment, they are 100-percent serviceable. MSRP: Starting at $849 | sitkagear.com

Dakota Lesser Canada Floaters

Dakota Lesser Canada Floaters

Constructed with a new MEVA plastic that holds paint and feather detail exceptionally well, the one-piece floaters are terrific for big-water hunters who set large spreads. The flocked heads come in three different positions. MSRP: $180 (6 pack) | dakotadecoy.com

Hevi-Shot Hevi-X

Hevi-Shot Hevi-X

A tungsten-based load, Hevi-X allows you to shoot smaller pellet sizes with the killing power of larger shot, resulting in higher pellet counts and denser patterns—with more energy than lead! Try 6s on greenheads; you won’t regret it. Available in 12- and 20-gauge in BBs, 2-, 4- and 6-shot. MSRP: $32-$42 | hevishot.com

Cupped 12-Slot

Cupped 12-Slot

This 12-slot decoy bag from Cupped Waterfowl works if you hump the levee for ducks or field hunters, setting mondo spreads for mallards. We’ve smartened up on public land and use a cart to haul all the gear. These bags stack easy, so we can bring as many decoys as needed. That feature is also beneficial for trailers. Each slot has a coated mesh bottom to allow for drainage, so when you put them away for the fall they won’t mold. MSRP:$59.99 | cupped.com


Pop-Up Blind

Pop-Up Blind

If you ran out of time to build that boat blind this fall, the Pop-Up blind is an easy option that can be installed in as little as 45 minutes. You give Pop-Up the specs and they custom-build the blind to your boat—this is not a one-size-fits-all blind. Stay concealed while you watch birds through small windows in the front and back of the blind. Once assembled, the blind can be set up or taken down for travel in seconds, plus it carries a lifetime warranty on craftsmanship. MSRP: Varies | popupblind.com
