    I have never duck hunted before and think I am going to try it a couple times this year. I just have one question....what choke tube should i use out of my 12 gauge? It is chamber for 3 1/2 inch. Thanks

    very few of us shoot 3.5s. they'll plum wear ya out.

    go with a 3" #4 or #2 steel shot (of course) :cheers:

    a. dont use 3.5" unless you just want to, the extra cost isnt worth it, imo
    b. mod or ic depending on size of shot. (also pattern as one may pattern better then another.

    Good luck :cheers:

    In the blind the rear naked choke is what they use for new guys.:D

    I prefer 3" #2's, 3's or 4's with a modified choke for ducks.:wave:

    I only shoot 3.5" at Gooses....:shrug:

    3" 3s will kill you a lot of ducks.
