The 22 was always consider a small game/plinking bullet. Only the poacher uses it for deer. Every state should outlaw it's use for deer if not already. Quick kill shots regardless of the weapon used is the goal of every ethical hunter. To even slightly consider the 22 for deer causes me great discomfort.

Point taken. I wasn't trying to cause a controversy over the ethics of bow hunting, just point out an observation. I do admit that I have never bow hunted nor have I seen it in person actually performed. Every show I have seen has had the deer run off for some length, but if you tell me that with a properly placed shot (similar to rifle hunting) that the deer will fall in a short amount of time, then I am ok with that.

Bow kills are based upon maximum hemoraging (spell) through the severing of vital organs and associated plumbing. There will be a lag time between the hit and death, which varies with the shot hit position. Some broad head shots will drop a deer in it's tracks such as a front spine hit other shots simply need additional time to render death. My best honest view says, good solid broad head hits usually results in death quickly, 10-20 sec, with an average travel distance of 20-40 yds. I've always believe a double lung broadside hit is the best archery shot, followed by a heart shot, others may disagree with this but this is my best take on the subject. Probably should put this in the archery post/forum but it came up here.

Didn't mean to hijack the thread, just came to mind when discussing the .22LR issue. I'm good with all the points made.

That's what we try to do here is discuss topics, see where we agree and disagree and hopefully in all that, knowledge is shared by all.

This past season I shot a button-buck at about 100yds with my 30-06 and it didn't drop him! had to shoot him another time when I caught up to him to drop him. It's all about shot-placement. No one is perfect everytime. With a .22 you're going to have to be b/c that deer ain't going to stop after being flicked with a .22 round.
