That's illegal in a bunch of states... Well at least it is here in NYS..

Yup, the steers I have whacked with a 22LR were BS too. I wasn't raised on concrete. If my Grandfather wanted to butcher a steer I did as I was told.

Heck yeah I have seen many steers and deer go down to 22lr just depends on shot placement.

It's illegal to hunt deer with anything smaller than 24 cal in NC. But if no one complains the game warden doesn't care. A game warden told me that he has found a sporting use for tactical nukes (controlling wild hog and deer populations).

We were talking Deer, not steer! So if I trace your URL and give your address to F&G for shooting Whitetail w/ a .22, that would be ok?? Full of Sh!t!!!! If you want to be a moron, don't do it here. If you claim to have done something illegal, I'll be happy to make sure to forward your admission to the proper authorities. Can't cure STUPID!!! BTW, since you have wacked whitetail w/ a .22lr, why do you suggest .308 or larger?? Make sure brain is engaged before hands attempt to type!!!!

The deer I have seen taken with 22lr have got the person in trouble, but I saying it can be done. In Oklahoma you can use 22-250s, and 223s for deer hunting but only 5 round mags
