    I wonder if the poly chokes can be put on a modern shotgun like a 590 or 870 for use with steel shot.
    I've got 2 on antique shotguns and I love them but I don't want to ruin the guns with steel shot ( and the mossberg decided to go off when the bolts closed a few times so I don't shoot it much). The mossberg bolt action even has a ported barrel to go with it.

    The family has two guns with Poly-Chokes on them - Rem Model 11 [12 ga] and Rem Model 1100 [16 ga]. I always considered them the pre-runners to internal screw-in chokes as they are essentially the same concept but external [and without having to carry several]. Uglier than hell to most. Both those guns have lots of lead and steel through them for uplands and waterfowl. Had a fish & game officer check the 16 once while in the marsh, he was a younger officer and said he had only ever seen one like it on an old gun of his dad's - they didn't shoot it, afraid it would cause issues. He asked how it worked - "Just fine for the last 36 years".

    We were lucky enough to stumble on a NIB 16 ga IC barrel for the 1100 back in the 80's at a small shop with a box of 'closeout' barrels.

    That's a tough one to choose right there. It's a nice buck and 90% of the guys around here would blast it in a second. On the other hand, letting it go for another year would make it a really nice buck. Probably depends on the day of season (opening day vs closing day), how far from the road he was, and how hungry I was.....

    This buck was less than 20 yards from my stand both last night and the night before. He’ll be a shooter in a year or two.

    Welp, I have tomorrow off. Its going to be in the 40s. Its rifle season and Dad is taking kiddo for the day while wife is at work. Hoping I have better luck than last year. Nervous as all hell about having to field dress it. Never done anything like it before. I've watched like two dozen videos, but I'd be lying if I said I was confident is going ahead and doing it.

    Dressing a deer is never fun in my book.
    Been hunting 40 + years, still don't like that part, smell, blood , both ?
    I find that thin rubber gloves make a big difference.
    Good luck


    And a hunting pic...

    Had to come back in and thaw out a little.

    Setup my chair and waited. Not 15m I heard a whole bunch of leaves crunching away. Had a smallish doe standing right there. Waited another 1.5h or so for a buck. Nothing. I heard some other movements, but couldn't see.

    Yea, I have the most ghetto setup. A $5 fold out chair next to a pine tree. But twice now I've had deer standing right there in front of me. I have a deer stand a bit closer to the house, but I have never seen a deer while up there. This spot I always see at least one.

    And yes, I'm full cocked because I had that doe right there and I was waiting for a buck. Otherwise I would have been half cocked.

    I'll head back out later. Let me hands become dexterous again.

    The setup isn't ghetto. The chair is luxury. 2 hours? You need better clothes.

    My hands, mostly. It was high teens, low 20s this morning. Best thing I have actually are my riding gloves. They help, but I also have my dexterity with them. Going to grab a cup of coffee and stroll back out there in a bit.

    Look at a youtube video on the "gutless field dress method". We went to this years ago and have used on antelope, deer and moose. Saves all that digging around.
