It’s the night before the last 3 days of gun deer hunting in MD. I’m like a kid the night before Christmas. I’ve checked my bag 3 times. Checked my alarm twice. Now I can’t sleep. Hmmmmmm what else can I check?

Well today was the end of late gun season. I only got 1 deer this season. Bright side is I have a friend who is allowed to hunt a farm with a crop damage permit. Hopefully we can get a cpl from there

Shot these in January

while on a meat/cull hunt on a friends farm. Doe was shot at about 35 yards, the unicorn (only had one single point) at about 90 yards. Both shot in the neck with handloads from my .243

Why is it illegal to hunt deer with a shotgun there? What is the logic (if there is any)?

@JohnB its only before the past 25 to 30 years that you could only have a rifle no bigger than a 22.250 or a shot gun so thats all you could hunt with it was mainly because of the war in nothern ireland, then when they changed it so you could have bigger calibers they banned the hunting of deer with the shot gun ,and most of the bigger calibers bigger than 270 i think there restricted, its politics we hunters get very little say

Crazy, or desperate (and lazy). Too often, anti-gunners want to ban some kind of gun, but word their laws too loosely and thereby ban guns they had not thought about. But, when confronted, these anti-gunners care not since they are not involved in guns in the first place. Plus, like the red flag laws - where the politicians are desperate to get some new law on the books to show they are making an effort to curb gun violence, they rush to get the red flag laws in place without considering how badly they are worded or structured, causing more trouble for law-abiding gun owners significant grief and (sometimes) loss.

It would be so much better if the anti-gunners were truly as focused on “common sense” gun laws as they claim to be.
