I wondered what the ole hands thought best choice of firearm for really heavy cover shooting. I put my stand on a really heavy traffic trail intersection 25yds off what was a soy bean field. The trails are wide but everything else is dense timber/new growth. Indiana is a no rifle state. My choices are 12ga. slug, 50cal. shockwave, 41 Mag. handgun. I'm thinking 12ga. slug would perform better for this than the smokepole with shockwave bullet. Good news is I can carry the pistol too. In a rifle state this would be where the 45/70 would play well. What ya think?
