12 GA 1 3/8 REMINGTON NITRO STEEL #4 3". #4 has a very nice pattern. I've never gone lower than a #2, #4 is a great all around waterfowl round from sea ducks, to goose.

Too bad the days of 3" 1 7/8oz Copper Coated Lead are over for goose. Those sure would drop at a distance :).

I would shoot Improved Cylinder if your getting them to decoy if your pass shooting 30-40 YD, use a full choke. That's what I would always use, but I never did pass shooting. Just decoy them in and drop em.

Have you been seeing snows over by you?

snow geese were flying all over the area at oriskany last few weekends

i went this week and forgot my decoys so i was screwed
spent the day getting used to my pattern on old sheets of 24x36 blue prints

they passed by more than a few times but the canadians were only ones to land (which they never do when in season

they fly to high to get while flying by

I have never hunted Snows before, only get Canada's down here on Eastern Long Island. I use #2 with modified choke in my SX3, I would think the Snows are a little more difficult to get to decoy this time of year so the full choke BBs sounds about right.
If I wasnt boycotting hunting until the Un Safe Act gets tossed I would take a trip for sure. Post some pics!
