Re: What Is Your Longest Shotgun Slug Big Game Kill?

Gotta tell you, I'd rather throw rock's than use a slug gun again.

Tried the mossberg slug gun, various pump's, 870's etc. but the best little gun I ever used was

a Stevens 20 gauge side by side using 3 inch mag's. Took a nice buck at 70 yards running,

to dumb to know better I guess, Thru and Thru, both shots. Buck piled up in short order.

I've seen to many messed up deer during slug season to enjoy it again, must be getting old.

These days I use a muzzle stuffer... My .00002

176 Yards opening morning in VA 3 yrs ago. Nice 8 point.

Encore 20 ga with Win Platinum and Nikon BDC scope.

1.5 inches at 100 for groups.

12 ga slug guns have just too much recoil and the 20s are just as fast accurate and less recoil.

Female black bear (NJ,2005) @ around 70 yards, with my Rem. 1100 12 gauge and Winchester Partition Gold Sabot Slug. I spine shot her with the first shot and then finished her off with 2 shots to the boiler room.

She was 2.5 years old, 209.5 lbs., and had had a litter of cubs already. No I did not shoot her with cubs. She was alone. Just 2 miles away, the state record was killed, 740 lbs!
I live near, and shot her in Stokes State Forest.
