Monday morning I killed a big 8 point (16 1/2 inches wide) standing in a field in Surry County. He was with a smaller buck and a doe and rutting hard. I dropped this deer using a H&R single barrel 20 gauge slug gun topped with a Leupold 3X9 scope and loaded with Hornady SST slugs. When I paced off the distance to where the deer dropped in his tracks it was 182 steps! I had practiced with this gun and can drive nails at 100 yards and the box of slugs says they shoot flat at 150 yards. I am here to tell you that this is a great low cost combination for shotgun only areas. I was due since the last really nice buck I killed was in 1992. Happy Thanksgiving to all.
