    I wouldn't use a. 22. Maybe a clean shot into the eye would drop it but most likely it will run off and
    die. I use a 3006 and aim for the neck.

      If you have good aim, a head shot with a 22 is quick.

      I have seen a few shot in the neck. If you miss the major artery, that deer is just gonna run away where you cant find him and die a slow death. Shoot for the lungs, its better.

        You should use a .223 at a minimum as a poorly placed 22 mag shot will break a rib and not penetrate, not to mention that they are notoriously inaccurate after about 30 to 40 yards, IMHO. I personally hunt with a .308 which is a good all around rifle for everything except very large game (44 grain loads, 150 grain Nozzler boat tip partitions). On the other hand, babi will succumb to the 223 readily. Also, rounds are fairly inexpensive with those as many military use it as well.

          Interesting. Thats why I started going for the neck. I got tired of running after the bastards. The last two bagged were dead before I got to them. If you don't hit blood, you will hit a tendon or bone. They are pretty much down with a broken neck. I guess hunting is like building an oven - we all have our own approach.

            Have not hunted since my teenage years (30+ yrs ago). Back then the state of Ohio over regulated white tail hunting, limiting hunters to primitive weapons and a 12 ga. with a slug barrel, no "high power" rifles as the state called anything else. Limit was 1 buck tag per weapon class (so the real top shots could get 2 deer per yr). Needless to say, by the time I moved away 15 yrs ago the population was exploding. A 12 ga. slug is effective, but you have to be close, over 75 yds and you would chase a wounded deer for miles, you might as well shoot for the sky.

              In a long lost parallel universe, long before one nutter with a rifle spoilt it for all law abiding shooters in Australia and basically got all firearms banned, I used to hunt, mainly foxes and rabbits.

              Anyway, I was out spotlighting one night with my BIL, me spotting, him shooting when he unloaded a whole 10 shots from a semi auto .22 into......"shit I think I just shot a cow".......

              I went back next morning and cut off some of the most amazing Venison off this big buck that he had dropped.

              So yes a .22 is effective.

                what were you trying to do save on butcher charges by turning the deer into hamburger in the field?

                  So I've had a closer look at my winchester. Its a cooey model 840 made in canada, and chambered for 3 inch rounds. Barrel is marked full choke. I'm guessing it might not be a good idea to use a solid slug in it. However, I've just been reading a wiki article that says buckshot is called buckshot because it was originally designed for deer hunting. I'm thinking 00 or 000 buckshot. Naturally the biggest I own are BB's. Any comments chaps?
                  You should be able to get away with 00 buckshot fo the size of the deer you are talking about. Years ago I used 00 in Virginia when I hunted. I assume that you have checked all of your local hunting regulations. Around here the game wardens have more power than the police and are not to be trifled with.

                  For the record, deer hunting in Ohio has expanded a bit from thirty years ago. Archery season goes from late in September until early February, you can use a compound bow or a crossbow. The first week of December is generally Shotgun season and they will typically have another weekend later in December to shotgun hunt as well. During shotgun season you may also use a handgun of caliber .357 or higher. Muzzleloader season is for four days during the second week in January.
                  You can take up to six deer during the season in my neck of the woods and since I am a land owner I need not purchase a license or tags, if hunting on my property.
                  That being said, I usually just let a couple of friends hunt my property and they generally give me some meat from their kills

                  Good luck and hunt safely

                    I hit a buck going 60 MPH in a 1984 Dodge Ram Charger. This was in 1986 and it did $1500 in damage. Never found the deer, he ran off. No doubt he died, just not at the scene. For what appears to be a fragile and innocent animal - they are pretty damn tough.
