so now we are not deer hunting...

Buckshot would be a awesome item to have in darkness
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 27571212

I'm a newbie at hunting. Figured that's what people used since it's called "buck shot". Am I wrong?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 26075182

i dont think buckshot is legal for deer hunting anywhere in the us anymore, though i could be wrong. it was the standard deer load for smoothbores for close ranges back in the stone age however, that or "punkin balls" as my hillbilly friends used to call single ball loads. buck is basically for human hunting these days

For hunting game you can use "buck shots" for closer range, but your better off with a rifled slug. You can't use rifles in MASS it has to be shotgun ( Stupid place ) ME & NH you can still use those loads. Correct me if im wrong

western tier of NY is "shotgun country" as well. yeah, i could see Maine and New Hampshire allowing buckshot on deer, most is fairly forested still. that and there are lots of old timers still plying the woods for venison. the shotgun only regs are based on old school slugs from smoothbores being less likely to carry much over a few hundred yds, so in denser population areas less likelihood of accidentally perforating miss crumbcake's bucket (or miss crumbcake for that matter, lol)
