    I'm going to the land of shotgun and slug barrels only. I've got a Mossberg 835 in camo,any suggestions on barrel/bullet combo for ranges out to 150/175 yds?

    No matter what combination you get, I still consider slug guns to be 100-150 yard propositions. Don't push it.

    Try to get a cantilever rifled slug barrel, put a scope on it, and shoot some kind of sabot slug. I honestly don't know much about the latest sabot slugs. I still use foster style slugs and shoot 75 and under.

      Keeping shots to 75 yards with Foster slugs is sound advice. Rifled barrels and sabot slugs will increase your range to 150 yards. Winchester XP3, Hornady SST, Remington Copper Solid and Accu-Tip have all shot very well for me from rifled barrels.

          Ohio huh? Good choice. Wayne National Forest in the Southeast is pretty killer. Meigs, Monroe, and especially Washington County are pretty supreme. Licking and Knox County in central are awesome as well.

                OK well actually down on the kentucky border is Shawnee
                State Forest, and in Muskingum County near Zanesville is the Dillon Wildlife Area. Also, see about areas near or in the state parks where you can hunt. See Salt Fork or Deer Creek. I'm not too good with this public land thing. I'm lucky and know a lot of the people that own the prime areas.
