    I am going to use my 28ga O/U to hunt grouse and woodcock this year for the first time and I am trying to figure the best choke combination. I was thinking of using IC/LT. MOD or SK/LT. MOD. Anyone have any suggestions?

    SK/IC harvests more woods rockets for me.

    When I lived in Michigan and chased woodcock and grouse pretty hard, I used IC / MOD.

    Reason being is that you're not always shooting at just a bird. More times than not you have to shoot the bird behind a significant screen of brush as they explode up into the canopy.

    More important than chokes is a gun that fits so well that the speed to shoulder and POI is an extension of your being. Shooting your grouse / woodcock gun needs to be a lightning fast instinctual response.

    I use a fixed full choke. It's not quite as thick in the west! This Remington 870 28ga full accounts for many limits of Oregon grouse.
