I grew up in shotgun and slug country. Was not much worry about where to hit them. Idea was to hit them. Lot of air around those deer when they are moving.
Over the years the thing that put venison on my table was
A Don't stand out, hunker down and tuck in.
B If they are coming my way, let them come.
The 10 point 200 lb buck on my wall jumped over a deadfall, a firebush, and me. Distance from the end of the barrel to the side of the deer was in inches. Like less than 6 inches.
Slugs may not be super accurate, although these days with rifled slug barrels some guys are getting pretty good results.
But they are a big chunk of lead. And if you put one in a good spot. Don't chase that deer too quickly, give it 15 minutes to lay down, stiffen up and bleed out. Well they will put meat in the pot.
Interests wide and widely varying.
Happily married 18 years. Retired on SS with lots of time to spend.
Started with .223 Ultra Bull barrel. Added .357 Talo barrel. Added an action and stock set bought here, 7.62x39 barrel. Then bought complete guns .444 Marlin and .300 Blackout. Leaving me at 4 complete rifles plus a barrel. Plus a 9mm stub job bought here, and I have been finding and buying H&R shotguns at our local pawn shop where they seem to go cheap.
