A little help all opinions will help

Postby CodyB » Wed Aug 28, 2013 6:44 pm

First off let me state im new to the duck hunting Scene. Ive gone three times and had so much fun i thought hard about selling all of my deer hunting stuff to buy all duck stuff.
Ok so with that being said this year ive slowly bought decoys waders ect... and a Browning bps 12gauge pump shotgun shoot anywhere from two and three quarter up to 3 inch shells. Now my question to you all is. With this gun what shell size & shot size & choke combos do yall recommend? Im hunting in Brinkly Ar in flooded rice fields. Price on chokes or shells does not matter if its worth it ill buy it. Also the birds last yr did not fly closer then 10yards or further then 45yards so longs shots are not a big deal. Mainly into ducks not geese. Thanks for tge help

Don't have particular experience with the BPS but I'd be willing to bet that using the factory Mod. or IC and some common 2s or 3s you should be able to take all the duck you like. Take a few boxes of different shotgun shells and both chokes, spend some at the pattern board and even more importantly at the clays course (with some less expensive light loads). With any luck the birds will be floating! :thumbsup:

I shoot 3's with a modified choke...always works for me. Also, carry a few BBB's or T's just on the incase...it sucks to miss out on an opportunity to shoot at geese.

Happy Hunting!

Seems like the common factor fir everyone ive talked to (on here or there) the 3inch shells are a good all around shell and ive actually been looking at other threads and the briley chokes are held with high standards

First of all welcome Cody. Since you are in the middle of " duck heaven" you should have lots of birds. I hunt that area a lot from around Clarendon to the north end of Dagmar. Had a club near Peppers Eddy for years.

As far as loads if your max range is 45 yards you don't need any special chokes. You factory Invector IC and MOD are very good. On shells if I could use just one steel load it would Remington Nitro Steel 3" 1 1/4 ounce in #2 shot at 1450 fps. Made in Lonoke Arkansas.

Good luck, it should be a good year if we can get some cold weather!

My favorite 3" set up for my bps is Kent 1 1/8th oz of #2's through the factory modified tube. If I were a better shot I would use the browning improved modified tube.
