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

      Whatever it takes to open the ring enough to get the process started.  I've just found I have a lot more control over the process with a couple small pliers and fewer pokes in the finger tips.   I've even been known to use the pliers for other things but I'm kind of creative that way.

      1-24-17 Fishing Report The fishing in the 30-33 feet of water range has been producing several limits of 14-17 inch Walleyes and Saugers with a few smaller yearlings in the mix as well. We have also seen a few perch around the 12 inch range as well as a few tulibees and pout coming up the holes. The fish have been biting more timidly so patience before setting the hook is a must. A plain red hook on a dead stick continues to produce a decent number of fish as well as using smaller jigging spoons,rattle spoons,buck shots and stop signs with glow in the dark pink,green,blue and gold being the effective colors. The hot times for the bite seem to be between 10 am-4 pm with a decent number of bites being reported between first light to 10 am. The bite in the 16-20 feet of water range has cooled off a bit with a few keepers still being brought up mixed in with a handful of yearlings. The flashers continue to be a highly recommended tool up here on LOTW as there remains to be a decent number of suspended fish being seen.  Good luck fishing on beautiful Lake of the Woods!
