Up here in the northwoods, we don't have a whole lot of people, but what we do have is quite a few "toothy critters", including black bear, coyotes and wolves. I have come upon a few collisions whereas some driver "schmucked" a deer with his "hybrid". The hybrid was killed but the deer only crippled. Can't stand to see that sort of thing, about the poor deer, I mean. So, in those events and because I'd really like to keep my hide intact, along with a first aide kit, I have a truck gun, along with #000 buckshot and sabot slugs.
