I usually shoot a Browning sweet 16, which is bored with a modified choke. I think that I might shoot my 12ga. with an improved cylinder this year, just to get the feel of my 12 for duck season.
If the hunting is cold, luckily so is the beer!

i shoot a modified, but an improved should work just fine.

I love my 20 gauge o/u Beretta with Mod. on top and full underneath, I could go more open but have never felt the need. Two other favorite items would be a camo visor (lets heat escape out my head) and a belt with pouches for shells and doves.
There is no help for this kind of insanity. I'm just a duck hunter, and should not be held accountable for all my actions between October 1st and freeze-up. Gordon MacQuarrie

I have a Rem with choke tubes and would not think about going out without my improved and and a mod tube. As the day starts out the birds may be a bit closer and you need to spread your pattern, as the day goes on, the birds may fly a bit higher(or flare) so you may want to tighten you pattern up a bit. I guess on any given day it all could change up but try to leave your options open... if you can! and good luck, it's a great sport and they are a great bird to test your skills! Enjoy :getdown: and they pretty good to eat after de hunt is over too :salude:

between those two, it shouldn't matter. i shoot an old 20 guage model 1100 with a modified choke in it, and it puts em down rather effectively.
if all else fails, put a lot of lead in the air! Lol, JK. i hate it when people just shoot to hear their gun go off.
