Trade in for a SBE and a Patternmaster choke tube!

I have read that some guns (especially those designed for upland bird hunting) are designed to do this, so as to better shoot at a rising bird. Also, that could be the way the gun fits to your shoulder.

Yes you are right, Trade it in. They do work great for turkey guns.

Duckhunter is right, Great idea. If you can't afford it finance it! You only live once.

I also have an 835 that I use for duck hunting it works fine for me. I do have an aftermarket choke on it though. It's just a cheap one. I can't remember the brand pm me and I'll let you know. I did find, as you stated that it did pattern a little high. Just do what I did, Aim Low, problem solved laugh.gif

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.

      Vexilar makes many "fish finders" what model do you have. Is it a flasher, a graph, WiFi type. Will help in knowing what your looking at when running your finder.

      brianfisher, Welcome to Fishing Minnesota! Using a flasher in open water is way more difficult then using a regular depth finder! It takes a lot of study time to really learn to recognize what it is showing you! Basically anything marked even slightly off of the bottom is likely a fish unless there is a lot of floating weeds etc. in the water column. I suggest that you get out on the ice with your friend this winter and use his flasher through the ice. You will very quickly learn to adjust the gain settings and learn to recognize fish under a controlled depth condition! If possible have someone that is familiar with his flasher model go with you and show you how to operate it. Once you learn to read a flasher your fish catching rate will go way up! Cliff

      Ice forming in the dogs water dish right now! Forcast still looks good starting Tuesday. I predict the first truck thru the ice on Buffalo will be Dec 23!
