This hunter dropped a buck on the run with a quick shotgun blast.
We can debate the pros and cons of running shots on deer until the cows come home. Some people are comfortable with them, others are not. We're not really here today to debate the ethics of this type of shot. However we are here to showcase that in the right circumstances, a running shot works just fine.
You won't believe the incredible shot he's able make on this big whitetail.

WARNING: STRONG LANGUAGE
Whether you agree with running shots or not, one cannot argue that this one wasn't effective. The shot stopped the buck on a dead run. Making that kind of running shot can't be easy, and there's nothing like having a GoPro capture it all to remember it forever.
In case anyone is wondering what he was shooting, the hunter Justin Walsh said: "I live and hunt in Norfolk County (Ontario). I was shooting a 12-gauge Remington 870 with the slug barrel, Winchester Super-X Sabot Slug 2-3/4" 1 Ounce."
The Remington 870 is a great all-purpose deer hunting gun, but it's especially great for harvesting whitetails either on drives or in places where traditional centerfire rifles are not allowed. That's partly why the gun has such a huge popularity in places like the Midwest where densely populated areas are subject to shotgun zones.
