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

      There's still driveable ice in the Ely area.

        We were fishing tip-ups for pike and jigging spoons for perch over by Terry's the last few weeks. There were quite a few perch in the 3-10" range. Sometimes we had ten marks on our screens at once. They were in shallow, 6-8', and the big pike were chasing them.   Also, Rocky Reef had some pockets where the perch were thick this winter. Those tended to be in 11-16'.    I still think the perch are in there, but they're difficult to find under the ice.   Get the boat out there and idle around side-scanning for baitfish pods, kand you'll see a lot of what look like perch schools.

      White Sand had 12 inches last Monday when I fished it.  ice cracked and began shifting a few days ago.  Interesting year as ice is still tight to shoreline, but some of those cracks that developed a few days ago are up anywhere from a foot to 5 feet wide now.      I'm done. was hoping to hit N.Long one last time but not worth the risk anymore.

      46 inch pike in MN sort of a stretch as well, although I was "only" about 5 inches short on one last summer. (on vermilion)
