as you said treat it like bow hunting .
a short smooth barrel 18-20 inches is a good choice , accurate with slugs and your able to shoot Bird and Buck shot through it even better if you can get a short barrel with interchangable chokes .

I wouldnt go with a rifled barrel as it turn the shtgun into far to much of a specialist. Ive gone the Rifled barrel route before and it works best with the sabot slugs and if you do decide to put shot through it the rifling will literally give you full spread at spitting distance.

keep in mind Cody. a lot of what you see online for deer hunting. is private land hunting, food plots with tree stands. Also they are shooting White tail deer not mule deer. If you can get it done with buck shot and put the stock on a mule deer awesome. I went the slug gun route handloading my own sabot slugs. After a year of that I thought why limit my self to 100yrds with a slug when I own a rifle that will take it out to 500yrds.

IMO I would limit my self to 50-60 yrds with buck shot
