.22 Game
I was thinking since most people don't use .22's for deer, what are some kind of game that you do use .22's on?

Squirrels, rabbits, crows, coons, any small that is legal take with a rifle.

Yep small game. Poachers use .22's on deer.

22cal size game
I think a good rule of thumb, is don't use a 22 on anything bigger 35- 40 pounds

Scoped 22
I use my Cooey model 60 with a 4x scope for Sharptails and Grouse all the time makes it a little more challenging than the 12ga

Like using my .22 for rabbits, or grouse. Head shots only with a 3-9x scope on my 10/22 Rugger. This way it keeps my eye tunned-up, "and if I miss", well good for them then they get to live another day!

I hunt cans and steels mostly with my .22 LR.

Groundhogs (woodchucks to y'all Yankees) out to 150. Beyond that, I'll get the .220 Swift.
