Depends on the laws where you live. Here in NY, we can't use buckshot on deer. If using a shotgun, deer are slug only. If you even have 1 shotshell in your pocket, you lose the deer, your gun, your hunting privleges for atleast 5 years, and quite possibly your freedom. Check your state game laws, they will tell you what you can and can't use.
Is it better to do the right thing for the wrong reason, or to do the wrong thing for the right reason? If you do the wrong thing for the right reason, is it still the wrong thing?
Si vis pacem parabellum.
To those who wish to take away our Second Amendment rights. What will you do when we, all 100,000,000 of us, stand as one, and say no?
