this has got to be a joke. if you dont know were the safty on your gun is you should not be out hunting with it. sorry if that sounds mean, but its for your own safty, and the safty of others hunting the same area. pluss you realy owe it to your game (the deer) to kill it in the most humaine way possible, and if you dont even know were tha safty of your gun is there is no way that you have had enuff practice with it to enshure a good, on target shoot. not to mention that a .22lr would only kill a deer if it was placed in the perfect spot. with it you will just hurt the deer. again sorry i dont mean to be a jurk i just dont think it is right to go out into the woods looking to shoot something without doing everything possible to ensure a safe day of hunting, and a clean kill if you get the chance to shoot one, and right now you are setting yourself up for failure.
