Which choke do you prefer for Squirrel hunting? I like my 12 ga and have been normally using Modified. Seems like last season I wasn't connecting like I have in the past. Was considering an Imp. Mod. next season.

I like full to get higher up in the trees.

I use full as well. I prefer a 20 gauge though. I use Federal #4 high velocity copper plated shot. It shoots tight patterns and the #4's have a lot more reach than #6's. Plus, the meat isn't loaded up with shot. It only takes one or two pellets to knock those little suckers right out of the tree.

Full choke and 6 shot is what I use.

Sometimes it's hard being me! But somebody has to do it.

Modified works well for me. So much better than improved.
