    Shot a little doe with buckshot, killed her clean, found the blood trail after the fact, was clipped by 2 slugs in a previous drive and crossed a road, they could not find a blood trail, but I know, you gotta blame the ammo.

    I use buck shot for close range Coyotes when they're too close to zip 'em with a rifle,so,they DO have a place.

    Well said.
    Hopefully shooters will learn the difference. If you don't have a clear shot with a single projectile then don't shoot.

    Sounds like a lot of BS to me.

    This guy found all those dead deer due to buckshot but none due to slug, rifle or car.... What are the odds.......

    And i don't use buckshot and never did.

    It really upsets him as he has to be very careful/watchful that he does not get them into the combine as it makes one big mess and down time involved, and costly repairs.
    He also found a big 8 point buck tangled in a fence that it tried to jump but couldn,t due to a broken leg, it just struggled and died there from it,s wounds/broken leg,bleeding and starvation.
    He claimed that as far as he could determine by what he saw , all these deer had been shot at with buck shot, he says he sees this every year after the controlled deer hunts .
    This is very unfortunate as 7 unrecovered deer equals a possible seven others shot to make up for those , and there those are wondering why there is a lack of deer.
    He said he expects to find more after this weeks hunt as there is a lot of corn still standing to be combined.
    I would bet there's as many or more wounded deer by rifle hunters every year than shotgun hunters.
    Some people just shouldn't be pulling the trigger at game.

    I'm surprised the coyotes don't get to the deer before he preforms his Biopsy.
    This isn't a test run................Enjoy er'.......

    That's so true but people get stuck on their way and that's that. No opening up to the other side . It's just their way and side and and nothing else matters. Most cant look at both sides of a problem a problem can only be one sided
