Depends on the situation.
For thick woods and foul weather I have an old beater Mossberg with iron sights. This ol' Mossberg has killed at least 25 deer. It looks like [no swearing please] but it is deadly accurate[up]

For open fileds and open hardwoods I use a custom made New England Arms single shot slug gun with a 2x7x33 Luepold scope. It is a Tack driver.

I also have a Belgium made Browning 12 ga. Autoloader that I have never taken out as I am afraind I would scratch it (It is stupid I know) but the gun is worth a bit of money and was given to me by my Uncle who passed away so it means a lot to me.

I'll be using my 12ga. REMINGTON 11-87 SPS with Lightfield slugs, topped off with a Leupold scope
I have the exact the same setup. I've taken a lot of deer with it.
But I may give the new T/C Encore 20 ga slug gun a try with Remington Solid Copper slugs.

I was looking for a slug barrel with Iron for my Moss 500.

I'll stick to buck-shot with a rifled slug for insurance.

12ga. REMINGTON 1110 w/Weaver low light 3x9 scope & 1 1/4 oz. Lightfield Hybred EXP Maximum Expansion Saboted Shotgun Slugs.

Talk about really reaching out and touching them with plenty of knock down power.

0 yds. drop --------

25 yds. drop = +0.95

*50 yds. drop = +2.17

75 yds. drop = +1.92

*100 yds. drop = +0.00

125 yds. drop = -3.81

150 yds. drop = -9.70

200 yds. drop = -21 to -22 inches approx.

= DEAD DEER

*Slug guns MUST be zeroed (sighted-in) while the slug is supersonic (above 1220 ft/sec in velocity). Therefore you must zero your gun 2 inches high at 50 yards, absolutely centered above your point of aim. You will then be dead-on zeroed at 100 yards because gravity will see to it. Zeroing at 50 yards also cuts down (by approximately 60%) your chance of adjusting windage error into your scope setting.
