I've never hunted deer with a shotgun before fellows. Yall going to explain how that is done for me?

Well in Indiana all you can only hunt with is archery equipment, muzzleloaders, and shotguns. You use slugs. I have a scope on my shotgun I hunt deer with. It is a little closer game than when hunting with a longrange rifle. Any questions I can answer just ask.

ok. range with a shotgun? im guessing you would not get more than 75 yds at most with a shotgun.

You can't shoot anywhere near as far as with a rifle but the better you know your gun the longer the shot possiblities. And it depends on the gauge of shotgun you choose. For me, I wouldn't shoot over 100 yards with it. But I will always op for the closer shot. I want to know without a doubt that when I sqeeze the trigger that the deer I am shooting at is going to drop there. Now, they don't always drop right there but they may run for say fifty yards then pile up. All I am saying is that I want to make sure it will be a efficient kill.

shotgun is up close and personal basicly a shot gun hunter has more skill than some one with a high powerd rifle since the shots are under 75 yard most of the ttime me i only shoot the betweer 0 yards and 50 i use 3 inch mags so i could go farther but i would rather of a clean quick kill

well it depends you have to have a special barel for slugs with slugs you can shoot to 75 yards but with buckshot whitch is what i use i only shoot to 40 yards for a good shot
