And no .50 caliber armor piercers. they are illegal in my county. (even tho bullet proof deer breeds are now more common.)

There is always the .22 to the head. Pretty effective.

I use a AR-15 myself, with 68 grain power points. Kind of light for mule deer, but I love the dirty looks from the elmer fudds when they see me hunting with my AR. :D

maybe attach some bayonets to the front of the car, that way it's the bayonets that do the killing.

there are many calibers you can use for deer hunting. when I was younger, i used a .243 and then a .270. haven't hunted anything in years though.

check this article out for more info.

"The top six deer cartridges in North America, in terms of factory ammunition sales, are the .30-06 Spfd., .270 Win., .30-30 Win., .308 Win., .243 Win., and 7mm Rem. Mag."

I have forwarded your suggestion to a co-worker who has hit 6 deer in the last 2 years with rental cars in random states, and 2 with his own cars here.

Careful in that school zone!

I fixed that for you.

Shotgun hunting is for pussies.

Either a rifle or a bow for me.

fixed again ;)

Real men wait in trees for deer to pass underneath, then jump down and kill them with a Bowie knife. :p

Personally, I find bow hunting while stalking to be about the fairest chase and requiring the most skill. Rifle from 500 yards away? Pffff. Until about 2 years ago, rifle hunting for deer was illegal in most of NY. Now, it's allowed, but most hunters still prefer to use a slug in a rifled barrel.

Incidentally, how on earth can someone hit that many deer while driving within 2 years??! I figured out the secret to always missing them: I aim for them.

You just have whitetail over there in New York right?

We only have Mule deer and Blacktail around here. Mule deer are much different to hunt than those easy whitetails. ;)

Of course, Elk > All. I cannot wait for Elk season this year.

Real men beat deer to death with their huge e-penis.

Typically I use a bow but I never miss opening day of rifle season. I have 2 rifles for deer hunting, a 270 and 7 mag. I use the 270 the most and it seems to be the most popular among our group. I have used a 243 but only for antelope since they are a bit smaller.

Some states do require you use a shotgun so you need to check your regs.
