Re: What Is Your Longest Shotgun Slug Big Game Kill?
155 Yds. State Park Deer Reduction hunt. Doe and yearling stop @ 30 Yds in some brush, and when they step out I shot the yearling instead of the doe first (they swapped places). The doe bugged out and I shot at her running @ about 60 Yds. and missed. When she stopped to look back, I ranged her and sent it. I aim for the high shoulder shot, and she dropped like a rock. When I got to her, the slug entered her neck right where it joins the head. ????? After I tagged both of them, I climbed back in the tree stand to wait for #3. Looking at where she fell, I noticed a small branch about 1/4" dia that was shot off about 8' out from the gun. Just lucky I guess! Tar-Hunt 12 ga., Hornady SST Slugs
