Can you really hunt white tail with a 22? If not, what ammo would you recommend for a novice hunter at close range? He would be in a tree stand within 50 yards of his quarry
Greetings Mort welcome to the club.
You'll have to go back to look at the remington site again I believe you must have made a mistake.
I just looked at the remington site myself and under "Remington Rimfire Rifles"
I didn't see anything that mentions "big game" under any of their rimfire rifles.
I don't think anyone should hunt deer with a .22 caliber., the .22 is too small I would suggest buying your son a new rifle to hunt with preferably a .243 caliber or larger.
Good Luck and don't hesitate to ask if you have any more questions.
