Default Choke Size?

Well ive been doin a little crow hunting lately and im having a blast. But i seem to miss quite a few more crow than i hit. I know i cant get them everytime but i was wondering if i should use a tighter choke tube. Right now i have been using a modified choke with 7 1/2 shot. Ive been having pretty good luck with that...but have been missing a lot also. what do you think? Should i switch choke size or shot size. If so give me your sudgestions. THANKS

I just shot some crows last weekend, don't do it much, but I had good success with the mod. choke and 1 1/8oz. of 6 shot. We were calling them in, and most shots were around 30 yrds.

It depends. If your a really good shot, use a full choke. If not, I'd stick with the modified.

i would stick with the mod. choke and drop down to high brass #6 shot.7 1/2 shot at extended distance has a hard time penatrating there feathers.let them get in close and give them a good lead when there flying.
