Prefer .22 headshots for quality meat, but I don't use the .22 much until November or so.

Depends on time of year & my mood, rather use a .22 but if the leaves are still on the shotgun gets to go.

Used a 12ga till I got a .22. Now I prefer the rifle. In the backyard I use a .177 air rifle with BBs. Just shot one today in fact.
