Allow me to preface with the fact that I am not a hunter and never have been.
So addressing this question from a point of complete ignorance, I feel I am recognizing a point of even more ignorance and that scares me.
As a non-hunter I have had the non-hunters need to understand that hunting is not some fun, lets torture animals venture and that both for the purpose of population thinning and food the concept of quick, clean kill certainly makes total sense under the heading of humane handling.
So is not lobbing shotgun pellets at a deer much more likely to create a whole bunch of small aggrevating perhaps torturous wounds on a still living deer than one good shot from a high power rifle?
This seems inhumane and insane to me. Am I correct? (somehow I am hoping not but fear I may be). If so please tell Capo of a load that will do the job efficiently, not for him ... for the deer.
