Question on slugs

4 posts in this topic

Bought my wife a Benneli 20 ga. for hunting pheasants, she is now going to try deer hunting. I don't want to purchase a rifled barrel in case this is not her thing. So if I buy rifled slugs, what choke should I screw into the muzzle? Thanks for the help!

ah here it comes.....it depends. Try them all. Start with IC, then Mod. Different flavors of rifled slugs may like different chokes. I recommend some type of aiming system other than the bead. you can get rifle sites that clamp on to the vent rib for cheap that will do a pretty good job. Also, try and come up with a gun vise or sighting in bench thing. That will help her immensely during that process and will lessen the odds she gets a little apprehensive about the kick. Slugs have a little more bite.

Fellas,

Thanks for the advice. I think I'll go shooting this Sunday and try a couple different chokes.

      Sounds like putting the gear away wasn't a bad idea. Didn't relize the ice has deteriorated that much. Guess I've been to caught up in thinking about summer. Sounding like maybe get the boat out next weekend hard to say yet would like to get it on the water first as possibly taking it to lake superior in a few weeks. Thanks all for the reports keep em coming. Ooh forgot drove past crow wing lake yesterday and the north side was melted a ways from shore and away from the reeds. Just in a few hours the ice turned from white-black to dark black. With the temps forcasted it shouldn't take long now.

        You got to stop by! One of the best fisheries as far as multi spices lakes in MN. The fish that come out of big V can be monsters. With that being said the scenery all over the lake is like none other. It's truly one of the most scenic lakes I've ever fished really makes you sit back and really enjoy what nature has to offer.

      I'm hanging it up for the season as well. Yesterday we hit 371 bay of North Long. The walk in was a bit spooky. The ice is very rotten. It takes about 8 toe kicks to make a hole hole through the ice.    With that being said, the 371 bay is the first of the area lakes to freeze and first to melt. So, I think it's reasonable to say that a guy can still get out on larger lakes, like Round, Gull, or Pelican. That's just my two cents.    It was a great year with many memoirs made. Good luck to those that still make it out, and again, be safe!

      My goal is to fish Vermilion again someday.   I keep driving past it.
