Oh BTW--I have to disagree with the birdshot portion of the article--it being hear say. Like I said I had a friend who had killed 2 deer eating up his garden---called the game warden up and said to shoot them if they were distroying property. He did--he thought he'd loaded the gun with 00buck that he usually kept in it for self-defense but it still had #6 turkey loads in it ....
I do not think that word means what you think it means. A hearsay statement usually begins with a phrase something like, "Someone else told me ...."
The Box O Truth results are corroborated by evidence (presented in pictorial form).
Now, if you personally witnessed your friend shooting the deer, then that would not be hearsay.
I have personally seen several dogs shot with bird shot - only to yelp and run away. I've personally seen bird shot knock feathers off of a pheasant - only to watch the pheasant fly away.
