Buckshot....

New here but thought I would chime in. Being in Texas we can use any centerfire cartridge for deer. I have used slugs for a hog and it is very effective. This year I used buckshot because it was all I had to use. I was using standard 2 3/4 in 00 buck in 12 gauge. I was using a Mossberg patrol shotgun with 18 1/2 barrel with cylinder bore, no choke. Shot was at 20feet. All nine pellets hit the lungs and the deer dropped, kicked, and went nowhere. Though very effective only 2 of the 9 pellets exited. But at very close range, under 25 yards, buckshot is hard to beat, IMO......

hey you shoot anything at 25yrds with a shotgun odds are its gonna die

Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.

And last phase, we must manage this resource so our children and their children can experience the grand tradition of good deer hunting." - Jim Slinsky

Interesting thread. Shotguns are not very popular here for deer so the experiment was good. Just don't use them for hogs unless you have slugs or you are literally on top of them, maybe a follow up. We have pulled buckshot out of many of them. Pellets never got through the hide. But for small hill country deer at my ranch it will do the trick.

Yeah, they tend to get angry the first few weeks. When a .30-06 does not exit at 50yrds it makes you think. They are walking bullet traps.....Amazing creatures......
