.410 slugs can be used to take deer at close range. So, I imagine, could .410 buckshot. I'd get the .22lr version and concentrate on harvesting smaller, more plentiful critters. If you are surviving on the move, you can't carry a whole deer around with you after you shoot it, anyway. If you are operating from a fixed base, then why not carry a more conventional rifle? Maybe a .357 lever gu, so you can shoot ssmall to medium game. The limiting factor on this piece is its practical accuracy. If you can mount scopes on it, that will be an improvement, but then how much of the value of collapsing it is lost?

My sister started out with the parkerized version for deer with slugs. At 50yds it was minute of boiler room (3" on a paper plate). Open sights are fine for how accurate the thing is. You can pack that thing all day long on a hike and forget you are holding it. Planerench out.
