IM and LM is my favorite choke combination for doves with my 20 ga. 687 SP II Sporting. IM first on incomers, then try for a double with the LM. Excellent combination.

Doves ain't hard to hit ........ they're just so easy to miss.

Likewise! Actually Miroku 500 in 20 gauge is the next gun in my wishlist. Would really like to have one. How long are the barrels of your gun? Is it a straight or pistol grip? What about it's weight?

Charles Daly Miroku. Barrels are 26", choked IC/Mod. Pistol grip and beavertail forend. Weight is 6.5 lbs (2.95 kg) with the Pachmayr Old English pad I added yesterday for length. Never thought I'd own a beavertail gun, but...

I really like the fore end. It feels great and together with the pistol grip provides controllability. Besides it is the nicest looking beavertail fore end I have seen.

I am sure I shoot more at geese. The only thing that really limits me in that regard is freezer space.

I'm sure you would enjoy it. Capercaillie is the true king of all game birds - at least as far as upland hunting is concerned.

From around 1970 for the next 40+ years until I became physically unable to hunt anymore my Go-To gun was a 12 gauge with 26" barrels bored .012" right & 024" left. By the simple act of changing loads, I successfully took quail, woodcock, rabbit, squirrel (occasionally) duck & a few turkeys. maybe a few others, but can't really recall. This proved to be a most versatile combination for me.

Squirrels I normally hunted with a .22LR standard velocity but had a place I sometimes hunted where rifles were off-limits so the shotgun had to be used. This place had a better population of Fox Squirrels than my normal grounds.
