Slug Gun Hunters

Recommended Posts

Anyone here hunt deer with a slug gun? It's all I can use here in New York in the counties I hunt.

What do y'all use?

I used to run a Rem. 11-87 12ga with 3" copper solids and I killed a lot of deer with it then I sold it and switched to a 20ga. I love the 20 shoots flatter iv gone threw a few slugs with it trying to find one I like. I used to shoot the federal Barnes expander 3" and loved them never had a deer take a step after the trigger was hit all bang flop not a twitch. Then I used hornady SST for a few seasons because I couldent get the federals but iv only had 1 bang flop deer and quite a few runners needed 2 or more shots and that's with the first hit being very solid te still take off and after recovery it's almost like the tipped SST never expanded or very very little. This year I'm stocking up on 3" Winchester elites iv seen my buddy shoot probably 25 deer over the years with my old 11-87 all were knocked sideways dang near when hit and either crumbled or ran I think the farthest was 30yards and we watched it do the death wobble and go down.

So who else runs slug guns either smooth bore or rifled. Iv always ran sabots all my barrels are rifled.
