Average range of a deer taken in NY State was within 35 yards I believe. .270? Try a .44 Mag.

I have taken deer as close as 20 yards with a .270.

Be prepared for any shot and use the .270 just in case you have the be the outlier on the statistical curve.

Can't go wrong with the 30-06, any game on the east coast can be taken with one. 125 grain for smaller game, 150 grain for deer, and all the way up to 220 grain for boar.
