I'm getting ready to purchase a camo Benelli M1 Field or maybe the walnut stock version of the same shutgun for next season duck hunting.I'm looking for what would hold up longer for wading in wetlands and hunting ducks? I like the walnut feel but the synthetic stock should be better for water, right ? Also have anybody every dropped their gun in water? Hold do you carry everything out to the field, without getting it wet? I'm looking at building a floating "camo" tug that I can pull behind me when wading in my chest waders to hold shells, hopefully ducks and other items.I saw something like this when I was in Louisanna but the hunter had his Lab on it. Look kinda funny that the dog was sitting high and dry and the hunters was up to his armpits in water.
