Hunting with a 5.7? Yep bunnies, groundhogs, and maybe a coyote.
With many years of hunting experience(and many dead deer), I'll say I "can" kill a deer with a 22lr or 22 mag. Do I hunt during deer season with a pipsqueak round? Absolutely not!!!!!!!!!!!! The lowest energy cartridge I normally use is 257 Roberts simply because I refuse to risk losing an animal in an effort to bolster my ego. Sure I've seen deer killed effectively with stuff like the 223 but I still don't recommend such use by "Joe Average" deer hunters.
