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.

      Hello guys I'm new to this site and sorta new to the area. We do not yet have a boat so the family is trying to find some decent shoreline fishing in the area. Has anyone heard any shoreline reports?

      Saturday found the panfish deep in the morning, not a fish on the shoreline to be found. By late afternoon the shorlines were packed with panfish.  Crappies just now are actually on beds.   Bluegills are have not yet started to fan nests.  The big seriously fat females are thick shallow, only a few bulls hanging around at this point.   This is for the area near Walker/Hackensack.
