I'm a firm believer that speed kills, I like to shoot a fairly open choke for ducks like a modified of improved cylinder and shoot a full for geese. Most of the new loads in the market today are too rich for my blood, I tend to stick to Winchester Xpert BB and #2s and am very pleased with how they perform.

Not to be critical or anything, but whats the point of killing birds at 80 yrds, or 65+ for that matter? Is it because you waterfowl hunt for the sole purpose of killing birds? Cause if that is the case my friends yall are missing out on what 90% of the game is all about IMHO.

When your in the turkey woods from sun rise to sun set, wear out a pair of boots, and 4 cushions every time you go you know you gave it all you had.

Its not the case, I waterfowl hunt to kill birds that are finishing into a decoy spread. Most of these long range shots are my 3rd shot. If you've ever hunted snow geese, you'll get use to shooting long ranges rather quickly.

SBEII is my choice,I have heard alot of complaints from my friends with versamax and vinci's! Any pump is going to be the most reliable choice,however it may be harder to get on target and get off 3 shots on decoying birds,than guys with auto's!


I am with nyturkeyduster on this one,call it what you like but when you have snows coming in and the shooting starts ,they can scoot out to 65-70 yards quick fast and in a hurry,but on the out going birds sometimes there is that golden pellet that finds its mark,and that is the 70-80 yard kill! But no matter what the yardage is you still gotta try!

I take longer then average shots all the time because of being poor and not great areas to decoy around here...jump shooting is funner to me. I've spent probably 7 days decoying and I think I've seen 3 ducks killed in those 7 days.

T shot will do wonders if you hit 'em in the head or break that wing. I've shot (at) plenty of geese where all I hear is the "BRRRRRDDDDD" of the pellets hitting the bird as they keep on truckin'.

My Favorite Shotguns to take are the same and they are a Remington 870 Special Purpose and a Single Shot 10 . I haven't had anything get past those two . They have alot of Great Semi Auto's and if I were going that route I'd go with a Remington Versa Max .

I just had a chance to buy a brand new versa Max for 800.00 and passed on it! A friend of mine was sent the shotgun to try out on a hunt he went on last year,when the hunt was over he asked me if I wanted it and that Remington told him he could keep it return it or sell it for no less than 800.00! I passed because of the issues I have heard from friends that own them! But I have also been told that Remington has addressed those issues and made improvements on the shotgun,but I figured why take the chance!

I shoot a SBEII and love it!!!! 80 yds is quite the poke and IMO a waste of a high dollar shell. I'm not saying you haven't killed birds that far because I wasn't there to see it but if it's true then it hasn't been many times. As stated in a pryor post though... Sometimes you just gotta try. I guess if you have pellets in the air then you have a chance. LOL Also... I don't see how pumping makes a shotgun more accurate either??? That just doesn't make sense to me at all. Especially for follow up shots. The only thing that you can try to justify that comment with is that you take more time aiming because you know you can't follow up shoot as quickly. That doesn't mean the pump is more accurate though. That just means you don't rush your shots. You can shoot an auto without rushing your shots too. That's shooter ability not shotgun accuracy.
