miss deer shot ,it all depends on several factors.where are you hunting?do you like heights?are there safe trees? how many people?can you climb? I need a little more info.Both types have their advantages /disadvantages

Don't use an air rifle/ pellet gun on a fox. Largest game animal should be a rabbit, with a head shot only. Take it from a rancher........ Do they allow a .22 caliber firearms there?
