Not so. Best hunter I know likes his Rem 1100 stoked with 000 when hunting early season. Experience, knowing limits... buck shot is absolutely lethal used within limits

that said, I'm not a great fan... I'd prefer ML...

Don't bust his chops too bad fellows, he is young!!! Think about your first kill, probably didn't have the internet or for some of us even cell phones...

As far as buckshot and deer, it is very effective if a fellow knows what he is doing...It's been a Southern tradition since before the Revolutionary War...If you don't like it, fine, deer have been lost and wounded by plenty of other weapons as well, by hunters that didn't know their limitations...

And therein lies his problem if he killed two deer with one shot! It's for use at very close range and should only be used in a gun that will shoot a very tight pattern with it, which many won't.

Anyone who says buckshot should be illegal is as stupid as their comment. Buckshot is cheap and does just as much damage. Stand 30yds from me with some 00 buck shot we'll see how far you can run. I use 00 while running dogs and still hunting in thicker brush.

I have to agree with buckshot being lethal. Every deer I have shot with buckshot has been a one shot kill. Not to mention they laid right where they were shot. But I also agree that it has it's limitations and anyone planning to use it should pattern their gun first and know it's effective range.

congrtats on the deer. don't worry about what most of these cats have to say. instead of welcoming a young hunter into the fold. they want to inform you that you killed the deer wrong. if it legal then hammer on. i hope you kill 2 everytime you pull the trigger................tony

Yea, listen to Tony and go ahead and bang away with that buckshot at whatever distance you feel like. Who gives a **** if you wound two or three for every one you kill or maybe you can go for three with one shot next hunt. What a dufus remark!!! Please listen to the final remark in the post by Woodsman88 and know your gun and its limitations whether it's with buckshot or anything else!

Default To everyone

The shot I made , I was not tring to shoot both of them. I aimed at the bigger one and peppered it from shoulder to rump. A few stray pellets hit the other in the spine. I was 25 yards away. And yes i was legal because it was a doe day. DOE DAY : limit two anterless deer. I got my first deer and the limit. Trust me everyone everything I did was legal.

I know the limit of buckshot . And my gun. Is 25 yards close enough to hit anything? I won't and don't take shots that I'm not sure of. And if you retread Tony's comment he said " I hope you kill 2 every time you pull the trigger" that just sounds like he said he wished me luck..... Not told me to go on a shooting spree.

I don't believe what you did was illegal if you had the tags to cover your butt. However, I will stay with what I just stated. You have come back with two posts that basically reinforce what I stated. You obviously don't know when to shoot and not to shoot even at 25 yards if you killed a second animal by mistake with one shot!!! If that gun you used put buckshot from shoulder to rump and still had pellets outside that zone to kill another animal you should not have taken the shot. That would be the case if the second doe was next to OR behind the one you drew down on. Please don't come back and say you didn't see the other deer and make it even worse!
