I haven't hunted with my 870 yet, but I bought it for small game. My double barrel shotgun is nice, but it doesn't allow for quick follow-up shots when you find a flock of ducks or geese, so I think that from now on I'll use it with slugs for bigger game.

I've only had my 870 for a few days but I've managed to get a few grouse with it. Mind you that is what I bought it for.

I bought my first 870 Wingmaster in 1967, it was a 16ga. I hunted grouse, woodcock, rabbits and ducks with it. I bought my first 12ga Wingmaster in 1969 and also that year I bought a 12ga Wingmaster 3" magnum to hunt ducks and geese with. I gave my Dad my 16ga Wingmaster that year as he really liked it. I bought a 20ga Wingmaster in 1971 but then I gave it to a very close friend who needed a shotgun. In 1974 I bought another 20ga Wingmaster which I have owned every since and will till I am gone. In 1983 I traded in my original 12ga in on a new 12ga Wingmaster, and since that time these two 870's have been my go to guns. I have Skeet barrels on both also an extra Imp Cyl barrel for both. I learned over the years with the 12ga at least I never needed anymore than Imp Cyl choke to kill anything I hunted. For grouse, woodcock and at times pheasant I have always used a Skeet choke. For ducks and geese I have used the Imp Cyl barrel with very good results.
