Default what should i go for

ok i got my mossberg 500 smoothbore
for xmas this year i can shotgun hunt nov 17 to dec 2nd and muzzle-loader like DEC 8th to DEC 28th i think

i plan to buy some much need hunting stuff and on my 08 list is a rifled barrel or slug gun or a muzzle loader or a new option in Indiana is a pistol cal rifle

i have a bow and bow season is Oct 1 to Jan 6th minus one or two days during shotgun season
since i have the smooth bore i can use it out to around 50 yards.
and i can use a muzzleloader during modern firearms season which would give me use of a muzzleloader during Nov 17th to dec 23rd both gun season and muzzle loader season which give me a extra 3 weeks for muzzle loader then shotgun

so should i buy a rifled barrel for my 500 or a slug gun not sure which i wont to do yet or just buy a new muzzle loader

You can always use rifled slugs in the smoothbore shotgun, therefore saving the money you'd spend on a rifled barrel.
