choke for pheasants

Recommended Posts

I hunt Pheasant in NJ that are farm raised birds. I have been using the stock modified choke on both my super sport and also the vinci shooting #6 Fiocci golden pheasant loads. Been having good luck but noticing that a lot of kills aren't clean and have to chase after birds and this could all be to me needing more practice with clays.

 

But was wondering if im using the right choke or if I should change it up or even buy an aftermarket choke???

On early season pheasants modified choke would be O.K. The later the season the tighter the choke and perhaps, the larger the shot. A pointing dog may alter the length of the shot, no matter the season. My BIL has shot more than his share of pheasants, in Ia., over a German Shorthair, with an improved cylinder.

If they are not falling the way you like, go to a tighter choke and try some #5's.

Good luck..

I'm using the same loads and improved cylinder with my Vinci on farm raised pheasants with excellent results...

With pointing dogs I used a light modified with #6 shot. I think if I wasn't hunting with a dog and they were flusing longer, I'd go with Improved Modified with #6, or possibly #5 shot.
