Default Best choke for dove and quail?

What choke is everyone using for dove and quail?

I'm shooting an over/under and have thought about using an IC on the1st barrel and a modified on the 2nd barrel.

Just curious what others are using.

Thanks, Nathan

For quail, I shoot a 20ga. with a Skeet in the lower barrel and Mod. in the upper.

For doves it depends on my position. I shoot a 12ga. for dove and typically use a Mod. and a Full. Sometimes I'll use an IC and a Full.

I've got my Remington 870 Express Left hand, and I swear by the improved cylinders. I just think they give you a better chance to snag a dove since they are so small.

I use an IC for dove hunting, and MOD for quail, because that is what I am using during pheasant season and that is when I get into the quail.

Quail, over dogs ...... I use Skeet/ Improved combo with 8 shot. Doves I use IC / Mod. because of the high fly overs.

ive only been dove hunting once. but when i went i used the standard mod choke that came with my 870express. i killed 3 of 4 on my first try (beginner's luck) so i say it worked fine.
