Where I grew up we had one choice for hunting deer... buckshot. If you keep the range down to under 40 yards, and have a 12 or 10 Ga that throws a tight pattern the losses are not any greater than with slugs. My 12 Ga held 12 to 14 inch patterns with 3 inch 000 buckshot out to 40 yards and many deer dropped where they stood......That being said, when the law changed to allow slugs I bought a slug gun, far superior to buckshot.
Remember.... they're full time deer......we're part time hunters!
