i dont see why its worth possibly injuring a deer with a bad shot just to fill the tag... but i suppose a good head shot with a 22 is better than a bad shot with a 300 mag!

I know in the great state of alabama it is illegal to kill a deer with a rimfire.. But i do know guys that spot light using nothing but a 22 mag. so i guess ya can kill one with a 22 with proper shot placement. just dont get caught.. the fine is horrible...

yeah it'll work like what has all ready been mentioned a lot of jackers do this at night for racks. poachers i hate em

Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.
Genesis 27:3 "The thinking deer hunter should mature through three phases during his hunting life. First phase, "I need to kill a deer." Second phase, I want to harvest a nice deer. And last phase, we must manage this resource so our children and their children can experience the grand tradition of good deer hunting." - Jim Slinsky

yes you could kill a deer with a 22 my friend did it but... i wouldnt as everyone said you may just injure it enough that it will die but not for awhile and why would you want to? .22 are for targets and small game...
