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.
That which does not kill me only makes me more irritable.

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.
