    Hunting Black Tails with Buckshot

    Will be using flight control with full choke.

    It's an issue, because these sociopath environmentalist's, will dilute the facts.

    did you pattern your shot? Thatís the first thing you need to do before deciding on shot placement. Definitely keep it under 50 yards. Buck shot can mess a deer up

    Yes I have.

    From what little I've found on You tube, need to move in quick to finish the deal.

    Thatís good then. Why buck shot and not slugs, out of curiosity. Slugs are far more lethal and penetrate Bush very well. I messed up a deer bad with buck shot many years ago it did the trick thatís for sure.

    Re: Hunting Black Tails with Buckshot

    I second the comment of buck shot will ruin a deers day right fast in a hurry. Couple years ago I watched a guy shoot a buck from fairly close range >30m with no Choke from a 28" barrel with 3" 00 buck. Down and ready for a coup de grace. Later on, we found out only one pellet hit the deer straight through the heart. Mind you that was a pretty small deer, a wee 2 point, but I think with a Choke you'll be golden so long as you're patterned and can lead a running deer if necessary.

    I wouldn't want to shoot at 50 yards with buckshot unless I had patterned it at that distance and it the pattern was good.

    I've used buckshot on several bears with varying degrees of success. When up close, it's really effective, but as the pattern spreads it gets much less so.

    Could be wrong, but quite sure not allowed, (slugs) on S G Islands?

    Thx Gate.

    Thinking 75-100 ft max to start.

    yes i would think what ever distance your pattern expands past 6-8 inches..
    i use buckshot on the farm when i go outside in the dark. but my defense attitude is much different thsn my offence attitude.

    I've killed a couple BTs with buckshot. I'd recommend keeping within 30 yards.
    If you don't have a seat at the table then you are probably on the menu!
