There are a variety of game birds for wingshooters to pursue. The sport also encompasses a wide range of conditions, each of which calls for differing ranges and shot-size requirements. It’s hard to make one shotgun and load do it all. The quick-handling gun that’s so effective for upland birds like quail, woodcock, grouse, snipe and others is a poor choice for a duck or goose blind, where magnum loads of steel or tungsten/polymer nontoxic shot are not only the most effective, but are required by game laws. Much like golfers, a shooter needs a few different “clubs” in his or her bag. Here are some effective choices for different applications.
