For hunting deer choose a smooth-bore or rifled weapons.
The first type is characterized by the ability to sight and shoot from very close distance. Smoothbore guns are not a hindrance to trees, bushes, tall grass and other vegetation. They are very reliable and have accurate aim. The main drawback is the inability to make accurate shots over long distances, padded animal can run away and stay long time in pain and become easy prey for predators. The effectiveness of this hunting drops dramatically.
For a rifle, it is recommended to use a large caliber, just shoot to kill or cause a painful shock that makes it impossible for prey to escape. Different penetrating power and quality of weapons of the brand: «Tiger», «Vepr», «Elk», «Bear», and their various modifications. But it is worth considering that if the animal has not touched the vital organs, it can easily confuse the issue and hide in a place without a hunting dog to find a wounded animal is impossible. A shot from a rifle may be carried out only in the open countryside, due to the fact that it bounces. We should not forget about safety during the shooting of this weapon.

For such hunting should prepare a feeding ground, and near them the hunter must disguise themselves and wait for the animals. Choose deer with big horns. This will mean that you shoot an old male, and save the young generation of ROE deer.
