I was at walmart the other day and a couple guys behind me were buying a few boxes of buckshot and talking about getting out into the woods. Knowing that 1) it sure aint deer season and 2) buckshot is illegal for hunting anyways, I almost asked what they were up to. However, I figured that in the end it aint my business what people are buying their ammo for. Still, it makes me wonder.

They are worried about the same thing everyone is worried about.
I hope it is not going to happen ,but it seems like we are going to hit it wide open.

why wouldnt you have some if you have a shotgun? slug, buckshot, slug, buckshot, now thats a meat grinder..

dimes at close range are better, have you ever seen a sheet of plywood shot with a 3" shell loaded with dimes, at close range it makes pretty good sawdust

Ill stick with the buckshot...$1.50 a load is to expensive and I dont want to recover the dimes, to messy.

Think about this.

They are going into the woods and bought buckshot.

When does "planting" in the woods start? Is it too soon to start getting the ground ready for the plants that will come later?

This is also true. I had not thought of that but it seems very possible. I just hope no turkey hunter runs up on them and their little garden in the woods.

Many years ago up in Cocke Co I checked a gentleman pushing a roto-tiller off of a WMA. He had a shotgun loaded with buckshot slung over his shoulder. He claimed he had put in a food plot on land adjacent to the WMA, and that the buckshot was for coyotes.

I wrote him a citation for the buckshot.

When the THP finished their fall flights, they discovered a harvested patch a couple of ridges over....

I've bought buckshot a few times. It's in my collection of ammo. It may not be legal for hunting, but if things truely got bad, it's great for protection and if push comes to shove, anybody would you what they have available to provide food for their family.

Buckshot is great for self defense purposes.
00 Buck has 9 .30 caliber lead balls in each round. :cool:

That's a LOT of lead coming out of a pump or semi auto if the need arises.

Buckshot is also highly deadly for deer. I have used it countless times in Alabama...in fact my shotgun with buckshot is my my preferred weapon for deer hunting. I am not into long range hunting, so all my shots are inside 40 yards.

I don't understand why Tennessee doesn't allow it.
