If your shotgun will hold a pretty tight pattern at the max range you would shoot, then I would use buckshot. I dont know many guns that will do that. 50 yards is pushing it with buckshot.
The bad thing about buckshot is, if your pattern spreads outside of the deers vitals, then a pellet may strike a gut, and if this happens, well, its kinda messy and smelly when field dressing, and it will ruin meat. If I am hunting in thick woods, I take buckshot. If I am in woods that are not that thick then I use slugs with truglo Magnum gobble dot pro adjustable sights on my vent rib. I will usually put a slug in the barrel and buckshot in the magazine. If I miss with the slug, I can point in the direction of that huge B&C deer and hit hit as he runs off with the buckshot.
