This summer I bought a percussion cap .44 rifle. I would really like to try to take a deer or two this season with it but am not 100% sold on the ethics of it. I am confident in my ability and the accuracy of the gun but have never heard of anybody using a .44 muzzleloading rifle on deer. Live in Iowa and hunt the woods so a long shot would be a little over 50 yards and more likely MUCH less. I like to sneak in on 'em.

:thumbup:here in pa 44 is the smallest rifle allowed by law inline or flintlock so if you can hit the boiler maker go to it and good luck

where i live .45 caliber is the minimum you are allowed to use. Check your local fish and game regs to see if that caliber is allowed for deer hunting.
