    Default Bumper Boy Bird Baskets

    I guess what I meant in my last post is: has anyone used bumper boy bird baskets, and how good are they. There is a previous post that they were good for pigeons but how good are they for ducks?

    a duck is awful heavy... I don't think you're gonna get a good arc on a duck with a .22 blank. even the purple loads...
    Never ask a man where he's from. If he's from Texas he'll tell you, if he's not you don't want to shame him by askin.

    Breeders in glass kennels should not throw feed pans

    We got 3 bird baskets to try out. With a green loan, it will throw a duck about 15 yards with a height of about 7 feet. It is good enough for the short bird. Would not recommend over 100 yards.

    RBP,

    Try a yellow or red .22 blank on that duck and see what kind of height and distance you get.
    Also, I hear that you get a better "duck" throw by using smaller ducks, such as a Wood Duck or Merganser.

    Let us know what you see, please.
