I will be using my AK47 for the first time to hunt deer here in Maine also.
I just removed my red-dot sight and replaced it with a 4x scope and took it to the range today. All in all pleased with the results once I got it dialed in shot 3" groups at 100 yards. I'm not certain what I will be using for ammo the stuff I shot today was 123 gr. HP which appear to be quite explosive but I haven't shot any at game so still uncertain.

Just get yourself a good box of premium soft points. It will do just fine.

And to the original poster the ak will be fine for deer. I have one and my brother has used it on 3 different occasions. In Maine you have to use a 5 round magazine max for semi autos but that's all you need. If you need more u shouldn't be hunting. Don't listen to the comments here. Lack of knowledge about a weapon leads to some crazy ideas. Your not using an RPG, your using pretty much a short 30-30 so the meat will be just fine.
