    Went hog hunting in Tennessee a few years ago with a S&W Model 29 loaded with 240 gr Hornady XTP bullets over a stout load of 2400. Took a 100 pound piggy at about 65 yards with one shot. Piggy dropped in a few steps. The Blackhawk should have no problems with a deer. Best of luck!

    I have yet to take deer with a handgun, but I will be taking out a 7TCU Contender out until I do. I have used the same model in 5.7x28 and a rimfire barrel or two to take some groundhogs. They are much easier to get in and out of the field, but take a lot more practice to shoot well.

    I used a T/C Encore in 308, 14" barrel and scoped for years. Absolute hammer on deer, although not pleasant to shoot. Used it till I bought a 44 mag rifle.

    I've killed bout a dozen deer with the Knight Hawkeye .50 muzzleloading pistol. I haven't had it out in a few years, but loved hunting with that gun. I have a Ruger .44 mag Blackhawk that is on my short list for getting a deer with.

    Pistol, for deer?
    I have a Savage Striker "pistol".
    I put "pistol" in quotes, because it does wear a pistol grip, but that is the only similarity.
    It is chambered for .308Winchester, is a left-handed bolt action, and has a 16" barrel.
    Each time I take it out for deer, I see nothing...


    I have taken coyote at about 60 yards with a 4" barreled .357mag Taurus

    So what do you do to catch them? Use ammo as bait in traps or something?
