I hunted Erie with the ML the past few years but still missed my slug gun. Im looking forward to having it back. Last year I did kill a buck with a different 11-87 with a saddle mounted scope but that gun was spraying slugs everywhere when I checked it this Fall. Not sure whats up but I shelved it

It’s that saddle mount , mine did the same

I got rid of my slug gun once just about every area I hunt went to rifle. I hope I never have to deer hunt with a slug gun again, never liked it. I'll take a muzzleloader over slug guns anyday.

I have a 12 gauge 870 with a cantilever mounted scope, the somewhat rare heavy barrel version.   I shoot Rottweil Laser 3", 1.25 ounce slugs (no longer available).  After opening day I mostly hunt thick brush and the heavy saboted slugs do well for me.  They are slower and make a bigger hole than most slugs.  During muzzleloader season I mostly hunt feeding areas in the afternoon with my Savage ML II.  I have toyed with the idea of using my .308 during firearm season with copper bullets to harvest some field does but have not done so yet.  Maybe next year!
