Novice Hunter: Shotgun okay? what shells?

Hi all, This fall I will be going hunting for the first time.  I own a Remington 870 Express 12 gauge shotgun with 26" barrel.  I am wondering, can I just purchase 1 ounce slugs for this gun and use it to hunt?  Would I be better off using buckshot? What size?

I don't really want to invest a lot into this and deal with barrels, chokes, etc.    I bought the 870 Express because I thought it would work as is.  Is that true?

Anyone who has advice on this, I would greatly appreciate it!
