    You can ONLY use a shotgun and slugs for deer on state land during the state land firearms season.

    Here is a link to the DEP website. Look for the link for the Hunting & Trapping guide. Better read it carefully.

    What passthru said. Minimum 20 ga. The only other legal firearm for state land is a muzzle loader during it's separate season.

    What these other guys said. Slugs only during the shotgun season on state land. Wanted to welcome you to the site. Why don't you stop by the introductions and tell us a little about yourself such as what you like to hunt and what you use.

    That's all you can use in a shotgun on state land. Buckshot is illegal (on all land in CT) to hunt deer with.

    Single projectile .36 cal muzzle loader, rimfire, or #2 shot is the largest shotgun load legal on state land for coyote.
