Nottingham-born Bowery put pen to paper on Monday after joining Stags from MK Dons on a free transfer.
And the two-time promotion winner now hopes to put a tough season behind him and start banging in the goals again.
“It was a bit of an up down season for me just gone,” said. “It was tough at MK, we didn’t have the greatest of seasons.
“I would like to have played more, but sometimes it doesn’t work out - that is football.
“Our strikers were doing well and it was hard to get in and on the pitch.
“Now I just want to step back and take a look at what I can do. I feel this is the right place for me to do that.
“The manager wants me to work hard, he wants me to score goals. I will work very hard to deliver both of those things.
“I want to show people what I can do. I am excited and cannot wait to get going.
Bowery, who began his career at Chesterfield, also revealed he could have been a Stag much sooner, with the club’s promotion ambitions finally sealing the deal.
“It was a potential move last summer, there was more interest in January so it is good to get it over the line,” he added.
“Mansfield is a team that wants to progress and is pushing for promotion.
“They want to go somewhere and that is what I need in my career so far.It is what I want to get back to.
“No footballer wants to play in League Two all their career, you want to play at the highest level, but maybe to get there you have to take a step.
“Coming here I feel we can progress and push for promotion.”
The move will be officially ratified subject to the opening date of the summer transfer window.The former MK Dons’ frontman will become the first signing of Stags’ boss Graham Coughlan since the conclusion of the regular Sky Bet League Two season.
