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.

      I'll be out this wknd and got 3 spots to try out so still debating which one will be the ticket. The past couple weeks I've been getting some while crappie fishing.  Going to be shore fishing so FYI the water level is pretty high right now with all the rain from few weeks ago. A wader would be handy if you have one.  Good luck n be safe out there.

      Found a half dozen good size crappies on Clear Lake in Waseca Sunday.  Just off the bottom in 8 feet of water, minnows under bobbers.  Water temp was 58 on the east side of the lake, which was a full degree above the rest of the lake.

      yepper, almost 30 between the 2 of us in the slack water next to fast water. kinda hard to fish in that fast water when it's moving so fast...

      We were using both, but the number of fish caught was definitely based on..... location, location, location - slack water during high flows is where it's at buddy.
