Yes, I doubt anyone does but yes you can.
the Vermont Regulation regarding handgun hunting is as follows

HANDGUNS:
Wherever a rifle may be used in hunting, a handgun is
permitted.

I traided my Ruger Super Blackhawk SS 4.5/8ths for it, because I got tired of my figer getting trigger bite and the trigger guard whacking the heck out of my middle finger.

The S&W 629 6" is so much more smoother and I feel more accurate.

I load a 305-gr WFN-GC bullet from Rim Rock Bullets as they sponsor my bullets for right now

My 629 has a 7 3/8 barrel the load that seems to work best is 240 nosler 22.5 w296.If I werent so computer illiterate I would send some pictures Im lucky to get words back to yaI bought a super black hawk at a real good price,but man is it a hawg leg 10 in. barrel,Im thinking about reselling it. Bruce check your regs.,I know we're not allowed to use a bullet,I think smaller than a .357.

If I were whitetail hunting in an area where I knew for sure I was not going to run into a black or grizzly bear I would just load a 240-gr XTP bullet from Hornady

A .40 cal. is larger than a .357 just not as powerful but neither would be a good choice for deer hunting
