I’d guess it’s a copper slug, fired from a shotgun or muzzleloader. They should be able to solve the caliber question in 5 seconds with set of calipers.
If it’s a handgun it’s not a hunter (or at least unlikely to be one) given the prohibition on carrying a handgun while hunting. I mean if it’s illegal it’s impossible, right?
Moving on. If it’s a slug I’m gonna guess that dog was shot for running deer as others have guessed. Hard to believe someone would confuse a coonhound with a deer.
The stick part is weird, assuming it’s true.
Not really sure how to read that.
No way to tell unless we see the back of the slug. Either it has rifling on it or it doesn’t.
“The bloody spot where Bo was found was near a tree stand for hunters, according to the couple.”

Lots of speculation few facts.
