I agree to disagree hehehe j/k
I think there are several factors for you to concider before making your choice.One would be your gun.Is it a slug gun with a rifled barrel?If so I would definately use the slugs.If not you may want to try both through the gun on targets placed in the ranges you expect to be seeing your deer.Personally I have taken many deer with buckshot and nary a one with a slug but I know Joel has taken many with the slugs and maybe none with buckshot. One idea I'd concider would be put a slug in the barrel and buckshot in the magazine in case a running follow up is needed.Hope this didn't mess ya up.
Good Luck,
Walk softly,keep the wind in your face and watch your backtrail
