Default Target rifles for hunting

Can I use a target rifle for hunting or not? Because I don't want to have to buy a new gun just for hunting.

Absolutely, provided the caliber is appropriate to the game you are hunting.

Also, stop in to the Introductions forum and tell us a bit about yourself... and welcome!

I was thinking of hunting deer would a .308 be good for both?

I usually just use my hunting rifles as target rifles, gotta sight em in and shoot em when not hunting!
What are you looking to hunt and what caliber gun?

Say hello in the introductions thread.

That's strange, I don't remember you telling us about yourself in the intro forum either!

I made sure to go to the intro forum after I read that because this is the most that I have used this so I decided to do that, if what I just said makes any sense.
