bolt action 695 slugger anyone have one

Recommended Posts

I own a mossber 695 slugster but my bolt is broken I only used it once on the range the whole bolt is not broken only the ejector pins at the end i contacted mossberg but they would like to have my whole rifle. But i wont be able to get it back before rifle deer season starts. i did write back and asked if i could buy a bolt no questions asked. Questions::
What kind of weapons do you use?
Do any of you drive or stalk deer versus sitting in a fixed position or stand.
I would like tips i dont have a stand and am going to walk around the woods maybe get lucky

Yes I have one and it is the only gun I will use for slug hunting. It is incredibly accurate compared to a slug barrel on a normal shotgun. Use the 385 grain sabot slugs made by Winchester, they are awesome. Too bad to hear you are having problems with yours, hope you get it repaired before season opens.

As far as how to hunt it depends on the terrain that you are hunting. I hunt ravines, so I look for an area where a couple of them come together and then walk around looking for signs of deer. If you find a well traveled trail, look for a spot 25-30 yards off of it with good cover. Keep in mind you want to do this a week or so before the season starts, you don't want to be tromping around looking for a spot on opening morning! Then get out there an hour or so before the sun comes up on opener and and wait for old mossy antlers to wander by.

There are many, many other factors to consider and you may be hunting in other conditions so my advice may not be of any use to you, but thats my $.02...

They will more than likely need your
entire gun to fit the bolt to your gun.
This is the normal procedure when dealing
with bolt-actioned firearms, so they aren't
messing with you.

    • NOT in some of the places i go fishing.................AND most the time i go fishing to get away from said phone!!!!!!!
    • Sounds like a good seminar!
    • After starting out the winter with a lack of snow February is making up for it. Earlier in the week the southern half of the state received 4 to 6 inches of snow and in the last couple of days the north and northwest received from 4 to 8 inches of snow.Snowmobile trails are now open in most, but not all, counties across the state with conditions rated as good or excellent in many counties on the Wisconsin Department of Tourism's Snow Conditions Report (exit DNR). Many state properties were regrooming cross-country ski trails and ski trail conditions ranged from good to excellent. Some freezing rain fell in the south after the snow, resulting in some icy conditions in some locations. Temperatures are expected to warm this weekend, especially in the south where more rain is also in the forecast, while the north is expected to get more snow.With all the recent snow, conditions should be excellent for the American Birkebeiner Ski Race this weekend in the Hayward-Cable area. It is the largest ski race in North America and attracts thousands of skiers from all over the country and world -- skiers from 49 states and 36 countries participated in 2018 -- and draws tens of thousands of spectators to the area. .
    • I doubt it but you can call the DNR and ask. You can pull up the regs on a smart phone anyway.
    • ......The 6 packages from the first round are long-gone, so I am brining up another batch. Ended up buying an entire case of butts (@ $1.18 per #) from Sams. I am going to do 3 butts - one with High Mtn buckboard seasoning and two with another dry brine consisting of Tenderquick, brown sugar, garlic salt, and black pepper. I always like getting to the raw ingredients of spices versus relying on someones "magic rub". If it goes badly I will revert back to the HM cure. As an added note, I also picked up a $20 loin that I put HM cure on to experiment with some Canadian bacon.... Will check back in 10 days or so!  
    • if thats the case i hope there printing water proof versions!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i cant keep mine nice and tidy in the cab of my truck!!!!!!!
    • Have not heard this. Why just a boat? It needs to be in some peoples buckets to so when their 500 fish over their limit they can't say I no know, I no know? 🤷‍♂️
    • Got mine yesterday during the snow.  I was informed that there is a new rule requiring the MN Fishing Regulations be carried on your boat and that this new rule is not documented in the Regs.  Anyone know if this is fact or just a kindly recommendation?
