    I sling mine to the blind and back. Mine comes off easily.

    I've been busted several times by surprise birds with the shotgun slung on my shoulder near the end of a long day after chukar. Now I sling it over my left shoulder with the gun in front, ready for a rapid response.

    I use a sling when I have a long walk and extra stuff to carry, like when hunting turkeys, doves or waterfowl. I'll take it off when I hunt upland game. I have the Uncle Mike's quick release swivels and use the same sling for multiple guns.

    Thumbs up all the way for turkey hunting. The sling on my 870 gets a lot of use when I'm chasing gobblers, spring or fall, and I've never found that it gets in the road when I use the gun for waterfowl either.

    I've never used one on a shotgun, but they are great for people who may struggle with the weight of carrying a gun all day. I would probably use a sling if I shotgun hunted for deer a lot.

    Definitely thumbs up in some situations. Such as deer and turkey hunting. They are also nice if it is a long walk back to vehicle when upland hunting.

    I use a sling for deer hunting but not for waterfowl.

    Slings are great as long as they don't slide around and keep the gun on your shoulder. I use the Quake Claw slings on my shotguns, they work great and are pretty weather resistant. Depending on the type of hunting you do it might behoove you to keep the sling on constantly or remove it after carrying the shotgun in (ie inside of your lay out blind). They don't really get in the way and won't throw you off, I've used them on both my pump and semi, doesn't effect the cycling of a pump. Hope this helps.

    Depends. I carried a Mossberg 500 with a sling attached the normal way and I found it completely unsupportive. I have also carried an 870 with a sling, the kind that wraps/velcros around the butt of the stock, and found it much better. Although an older style rigging system, a good 3-point sling on a shotgun is fantastic when doing some all day small game hunting afoot; it really holds the weight well evenly on your shoulders. Personally, I like to still just hunt with a single shot H&R, light and small.
