I prefer slugs myself for additional range and knock down power when shooting in mainly open areas, but where I was hunting there was a lot more thick stuff than open area so I went with the buckshot, I was shooting what I consider close to the max comfort range I have with buckshot. I will tell you though that 20 yards and closer buckshot will knock a deer just as flat and as hard as a slug will.

Well Taz, way to go and Congrats. Pics?

I'm not a fan of buckshot Taz, but I'm glad you got your buck. We hunt a thick cedar swamp and slugs do a great job. Of course, who am I to tell you anything - you have probably killed more deer than I've even seen in my life. Way to go.

congrats on your buck Taz. Murphy help with the drag at least?
once I get him butchered I will be bow hunting the rest of the season.
I've been waiting to say that this season. Still hoping to say that except there's only 5 days left here.

Good job Martin. As far as I know buckshot is illegal in Md but they use it a lot in Jersey with all the driving thats done here. Not a fan of it myself either but as you proved it will get the job done.

Congrats Taz. I got my first buck a couple of years ago (10 pointer) with buckshot. He was only about 15 yds away, and started jumping around when I hit him. I chambered a slug and put him down. I normally use a 30/30, but just happened to grab the shotgun after lunch. Georgia deer are small, so I was amazed that it took several shots.
