    Something light too carry, quick shooting and easy maneuvering, and most important don't mind scratching the hell out of it. woodcock 8-7 1/2 grouse 6's do well. improved cylinder or skeet for a choke.
    My go to gun is a 20 gauge weatherby youth model synth stock, 7 1/2 & 6's out of the improved cylinder over a decent setter.

    What ever gun you can shoot quickly and effectively. I have a SxS 20ga Ugartechea side-lock. English stock with splinter forened and two triggers. Choked cylinder and I/C. It’s fast as lightning and works for me. For sale too...

    I prefer a 20g double gun for grouse and woodcock. Bought a Franchi Instinct over under a few years ago and love it for grouse/WC. I recommend a 26-28 inch barrel, with C and IC or skeet chokes and you are good to go.

    20g, 26in double barrel, pick a gun that fits or have it fitted, I use a Browning citori gr 3 in that configuration with removable chokes for all my upland shooting

    My “go to” is a 20g Citori Feather Lightning. 26” bbls usually chocked Skeet/Light Mod for grouse & pheasant. If specifically targeting WC, then it’s #8 shot and SK/SK chokes. Oh, the gun weighs 5lb 14oz. One of these helps a lot. Don’t ask, it’s not for sale

    I like 20ga double barrel shotguns. Early season when the woodcock are around I go with 7.5 shot and chokes CY by IC. After the woodcock are gone and I’m strictly shooting grouse, I go with number 6 shot and choke up to IC by MOD.
    Basically you want something light in weight for long walks and quick to shoulder for the fast flying birds. Very important the shotgun fits right as so it shoots where you’re looking. No time for adjusting your gun mount when a bird flushed. Shots are usually close in cover so open chokes and small shot size to fill the pattern are the norm. Plus you don’t want to damage to much of the tasty grouse meat.
