depends on how close you are, you mainly have to just get all the bbs out when you clean it or eat it. as long as you dont use a slug or anything obviously and arent at point blank range it doesnt usualy mess too much up.

I would agree with King and Gitter. I also think that it all depends on the gauge shotgun, size of shot (shell) and choke patterning. If you want to know how badly damaged your kill would be you'll probably have more "damage" from a 12 gauge, 3.5" shell. That's what I use for Turkey but the choke pattern is pretty tight. That setup is more for better range.

yea but you might injure them with a .410 if the shot is too far. its your call, if you arent at point blank the damage will be minimal.
