whats the best gun to use for deer in heavy to medium brush?
There is no such thing as a brush gun. No bullet will go through tree limbs and brush and continue on a straight path to your target.
Now that's a LOADED Question.....
Let the arguments begin...

Next they will come out with the Buck Grenade :rof2::hysterical:
I've been looking at getting a second "brush gun" myself. I'm often hunting in pretty darn thick woods, on what are good travel routes. I tend to see quite a few deer when I'm there, but almost never see them stop or even slow down. I killed the buck in my avatar in a location like that. I found a small opening ahead of him, got the gun there, and got lucky that he actually did hit that opening. But I have missed a doe because of hitting a small limb I didn't see.
To me, the first thing I want is open sights. My current rifle doesn't even have sights (scope only) and it's more difficult to keep a good sight picture on a moving deer, and more difficult to see the small twigs. The second factor I'll be looking at is the bullet weight (as people have mentioned). I don't ever want to intentionally try to shoot through any small twigs, but if/when it happens I'd like a bullet that is less likely to deflect.
Lever action, open sighted, 30-30 to 45/70 caliber.
The one you shoot most accurately would be the best one for you to use.
Marlin Guide Rifle in 45/70!
NO GUN SHOOTS ACCURATELY THREW BRUSH! They ALL will be deflected.
The caliber is irrelevent!
The best "brush" gun is a compact gun with a low power scope(allows more accurate shooting in low light conditions) or open sights that you shoot well. My reasoning for this is that hunting in "brush" implies closer shots, and lower power scopes and open sights perform best under those conditions.
