I never saw #4 buck in a 20ga load. Mine was always Winchester 2 3/4" #3 or Federal 3" #2.
May not have been #4 buck...it was 35+ years ago I came across a box of it while looking for something at my dads place the last time I was there. I'll check and see when I am back home the next time. It was a green/yellow box so pretty sure it was Remington.

I didn't kill my first deer until last year at 60 yrs. of age. Little button buck with a Colt CRE-18 in 5.56mm (Winchester 62 gr. bullet). Bow - pending. I shot my deer at 100 yds. The position in the blind was terrible, I had to take the shot standing, and with the rifle canted onto its side - so the crosshairs were an "X" shape, instead of a cross shape. This resulted in a high double lung hit which didn't matter to the deer. He dropped like he was hit by the Hammer of Thor - DRT.

Regards,

Dave

I don't remember the brand bow as it was a hand me down from my friend and it was over 30 years ago and I only shot it about 6 months. I killed a 2x2 blacktail.

Marlin 30AS 30-30, young 8pt chasing a doe in Eastland, probably about 13yo and my first time to ever hunt by myself. Shot at and missed the doe before I saw the buck, then missed him twice before he stopped and I put one in his shoulder, when he turned and ran I shot at and missed him again. the doe ran back through and I shot at and missed her again. 6 shots in about 15 seconds, my dad didn't know if he wanted to be mad or laugh at me.

An old Sako 243 with the Bofors Barrell stamp. Was my grandpa's, then my dad's, now its in my safe. Will be my kids too. Not nearly as accurate as it used to be but I spent alot of hours behind that trigger and still love that gun although it collects dust mostly now.

My two older sons, used this same rifle for their first deer kills as well. And my youngest shot it for the first time a couple of weeks ago. He will be next.

One of my most prized possessions handed down to me by my late grandfather.

Default What firearm (or bow) did you get your first deer with?

I would have been 12 or 13 so 05-06. 10 pt mule deer across from the cal farleys boys ranch. Marlin 336 .30-30 hit him good on first shot in the lungs but he was still standing so I kept shooting. Emptied that gun on him like a scene from the rifleman. Didnt hit him on any of the other shots I was shaking so bad after the first one. He had to have only been 50-60 yards ran maybe 20 and that was it. Still remember the doe he was following refused to leave and was standing only 30 yards away the whole time we were messing with loading him in the truck.
