I've take one deer with a Ruger BH, it did a great job, lots of power, DRT. It's a great up close gun. As I get older and my eyes get older I lean towards the scoped long guns.

We always started the kids off with a Marlin 336 30-30, but it's only a 150 yard gun. We are tree hunting in the woods so most shots are sub 100 yards. The 6.5 is a great choice too

Pheasants that escape from the game farm are legal game if they get off the game farms land. I would think deer would be the same way. Further more, this is how CWD got so widely spread. Shoot it
