i use a 30-06 for all my big game hunting, moose, deer, elk whatever it is, but this might be a stupid question but just wondering if my .22 would be able to kill a deer allthough i would never use it for that, but just wondering.

your 22 will kill about anything that walks,flys ,swims,etc. if hit in the right spot. but so will a rock. 3006 = great choice

Never, never, ever use a .22 for deer. In most states, not only is it illegal, it's also inhumane. There have been other posts asking the same question and the answer is always a resounding "NO".

Yeah - a .22 will kill a deer ,,,,,,,, eventually. Unfortunately a lot of deer shot with the various .22's stagger off and go unfound, til the buzzards start circling in a few days. Stick with calibers over .243 and you'll be a lot more satisfied with the results.

dont worry i am not going to use my .22 to shoot deer, i was just wondering. you know one of those "i wonder" questions. i got my 30-06 for hunting, that last thing i want to do is injure something because i use too light of a gun.

One of the biggest Grizzly bears on record was taken by an indian with a .22 using shorts! She was protecting her children. I don't believe any one would call a .22 a bear gun.
