This thread is encouraging. I’m a latecomer to hunting. I just started a couple of years ago. I’m 43 now and just got my first deer 2 weeks ago. I used a 12. ga slug and made a double lung shot at 15 yards. It ran 20 yards and dropped.
Last February I bought a Ruger Super Redhawk in .44 mag. I bought is just for hunting. Though, I’ve been a little worried that it wouldn’t drop a deer as fast as the 12. ga. Being a noob at this, my tracking skills are a bit lacking. After this thread I’m a little more confident with the Ruger, provided I do my part.
