Ive harvested one sick looking doe with a 22, was squrrilly hunting and the deer got up fell and kept doing the same. I unloaded on it and killed it by the 3-4 shot. Then hauled it away. It was some kind of a nasty doe, idk i guess cwd got that one.

The caliber that has killed the most White-tails is the 30-30. Walmart carries an awesome Marlin lever action. I shot a deer this year.using mine.I missed the vital shot because of bad positioning and the deer still fell over Instantly. The gun cost about 274.00. I put a scope on too. The accuracy is unbelievable. Our range is only 50 yards and I'm getting a pattern of a nickel.

Best gun I've ever own,

could u use a marlin 7000 for whitetail hunting?

The answer is NO, NO, NO. Show the game you are hunting repect and use a caliber that will allow a clean and quick kill. Sure a .22 will kill a deer if your shot placement is perfect, and you maybe a expert marksmen, but deer move way to fast to take the chance of injuring the animal with less than a perfect shot.
