I wanted to get some more experienced views on this.
On my last hunting trip the deer were not moving at all, so I left the blind and wandered around the game trails to see what I could scare up. I jumped about 4 deer throughout the morning but never had a shot I felt confident enough about to take. One doe in particular jumped up agout 20 yds from me and ran at an angle away from me. I had a quartering away shot at the running deer, but did not want to try a shot with my .243.
My question is, in a similar situation, could a 12 ga 3in magnum load in OOObk or OObk be effective on running deer? Also what is the maximum effective range for buck shot?
Thanks for the input! I am glad I finally found this site.
