A Ducking We Will Go has the Three Stooges selling memberships in a phony duck hunting club at the behest of some conmen. Wouldn't you know the boys sell the memberships to practically the entire police force of a town and now really have to come through or duck for cover.
Most of this short subject is out in the woods with the hunters as the promised ducks fail to materialize so the boys have to improvise. There's a great gag with Moe and Larry as they slingshot decoys in the air that the hunters can shoot until Curly locates some real ducks.
Which sets up a very funny gag as the boys who've sunk their own rowboat now decide to get some ducks. In particular Curly has some problems with some ducks who decide to fight guns with water. It really gets hilarious as he's surrounded by spraying ducks.
This short particularly shows Curly's comic genius, don't miss it.
