.22 long rifle
The only gun I have to use to hunt whittail is a .22 long rifle. I was wondering if anyony has any suggestions on where to shoot the deer. Iv been told by several to shoot in the head. Also what type of ammo should I use? I was told to get one with a solid point. Please give me som advise. I was also looking for an inexpensive scope and ideas? :confused:

i dont even know if its legal to hunt deer with a 22lr .My advice is to get a real rifle

yes i think its illegal to hunt deer with a .22!!! check your regulations for your state. its also a very inhumane way to try and kill a deer. you need a bigger rifle

Well I believe that it's much too risky to try taking a deer with a 22. Is there any possibility of you getting a rifle with a little more power? Scope? I have a basic Bushnell scope that came with the rifle I purchased. I believe that it's the most simplest scope on the market.

There is no need to even hunt deer with a 22, first off it is most likely illegal, second it is mean to the deer. And may i ask why this is posted in the shotgun section of the forums?
