I have the exact same setup. I bring my Winchester slug gun and a Super Red Hawk 44. I have'nt killed anything with it yet, but I can't wait to try it. Have you? Good Luck

Havent got one yet with the handgun but im hoping this year is my year. Had a shot at a 8 pointer last year but my red dot scope failed on me. I think im gonna leave the shotgun in camp opening day and only bring the handgun. I really just want to get one with the handgun. I have my dad and brother for meat in the freezer. The spot i hunt should keep all shots inside of 35 yards so i feel comfortable that if i see anything i should have no problem with the handgun.

Well its time to pack up the truck and head out to deer camp.
We are going to have to start a illinois firearm season thread for all the pics. Hopefully i will have a few pics of my first handgun deer posted on sunday.

Good luck guys

Vince

Mossy 835 fully rifled cantilever, bushnell scope, 2.75" Remington Core-Lokts
Got 2 tags, once I fill one with that, will switch to my 50cal Knight thumbhole Wolverine.
Both guns have been extremely accurate for me.
