I've always wanted to take a deer with a slug gun. So I bought one back in May and was able to put it to the test. I took this buck at 181 yds, using Hornady's 300gr SST slugs. Hit him behind the shoulder, I think he knocked his front teeth out slamming to the ground. Sounded like baseball bat hitting a water melon! Awesome experience!

I was wondering the same thing...do a bunch of damage (expansion or tumbling) or just punch a big hole.... confused2

Regardless, nice buck with a nice gun..... cheers

The entry was a big hole but the exit was massive! I didn't take any pictures but it was bigger than a golf ball for sure.

Please, please pardon my ignorance- but,is it buckshot that you use as ammo?
Sorry, not familiar with this. But I had customers tell me that they had to hunt deer in Michigan with shotguns.

That's poke with a slug! Awesome job. Love acorn on the tine. Congrats. How far do you think you could actually take a shot at and be effective. You passed what some can do with a rifle. Lol

That's pretty cool, I had no idea slugs were effective at that range, thought 100yds was about the max
