I love playing with my .30 carbine, but hunting Ohio whitetails? Hell no!

I know that some folks hunt with handguns which produce similar energy numbers to the 30 Carbine...

I hunt deer exclusively with handgun, and a handgun that produces similar energy is not legal in Ohio. A .30 carbine energy about equals a .38 spl with a much more miserable selection of suitable hunting bullets. .30 carbines lame performance on humans in the Pacific during WWII is well documented.

Sure, if you are starving, its better than a good slingshot (slightly), but when you have more suitable arms at home, using the .30 carbine is unnecessarily cruel and inhumane.
