Okay... Uhhmmmm... I'm confused... Tennessee doesn't allow hunting large game with buckshot. Uhhhh....... Isn't that why they call it "buckshot"? I mean some good 00 is approximately the same as multiple 38 caliber rounds, give or take a little. And it's legal to hunt deer with any center fire weapon as long as the BBL is a minimum of 4". So what's the deal with this? I'm still fairly new to TN, so any locals know the reasoning behind this? Or any of you non-Tennesseeans have the same law? I do prefer to hunt with slugs, but some 00 would be nice for the closer range shots though. Maybe it's just me, but I think this is about crazy.
