A simple poll to help us understand our target audience. We're revamping the Gear on 16ga.com next spring and this will aid in the decision making. Thanks for your time.

-Doug

Amended): I changed the Poll question from 'mostly' to 'best'. I'm looking for a category you'd most likely buy gear for.

Most States consider doves as upland.

I hope everyone starts using their 16 Gauge shotguns for other things besides upland birds.

Please add a category for Rabbits. Also a category for Squirrel. Then I can vote.

60% upland, 35% clays, and a bit of waterfowl now and then.

How about just a "Small Game" category?

I've been shooting rabbits (as well as grouse, pheasant, woodcock, quail, etc.) with my 16Ga Lefever for almost 35 years. A pot of rabbit stew on a cold winter day feeds both the body and soul.

Primarily Waterfowl, Dove and Quail, probably in that order depending on Dove opportunities year to year.

Steve Voss;
I feel the same way, but the survey would only let me choose one or the other.

ps; the Sauer 16 Gauge is slowly coming along.

I amended the poll question and the added to the choices. What I'm looking for is bird hunters vs waterfowl vs clay shooters, as all require different gear.

Thanks, -Doug
