    Any particular slug?

    I was actually assuming 12g slug, but kept it general incase anyone was using some other load (sabot for long diet, buck, etc...)

    I've never had an animal do anything but go belly-up after I shot it with a Horandy SST 12 gauge sabot. I'm interested in the Winchester Dual Bonds as well, got a couple of boxes but I can't get ahold of any more this time of year so I can't test them out. Last trip with them I got skunked, but I'm told they hold together well and at 375 grains, not much is walking away from it.

    I use the common Hornady SST slugs(12 ga) for deer at times, they work fine for me.

    Once the dogs have got a hold of him and he's holding still, a ball peen hammer works pretty good.

    Don't over complicate things. Value pack slugs will work just fine as long as they are accurate in your weapon. The heavier the better.
