A comment titled: deer and ducks in response to a report titled: Duck and a doe

Not a good idea on hunting both species at the same time. I did the same and bagged a doe from 15 yards out my pit blind on a rice field levee. I shot the deer with 3' steel BB shot and dropped her like a rock. I walked back to the truck with a doe, a green head and a pintail and my shotgun. When i got back to my truck, i was greeted by a wildlife federal agent. Basicly, he stated, if you hunting ducks, you can only hunt ducks. If you hunt deer, you can only hunt deer. You cant take a deer with steel shot and you cant take a duck with buckshot.So, with that said, you cant have lead and steel shot on your possesion at the same time legally.
I was cited for taking the deer ilegally and a restocking of the deer also. That was a $1600 fine.
