Back a number of years ago, I hunted deer up on Cumberland Island off the South Georgia coast. I used a .357 Mag three screw Ruger SA, and my handloads. The bullet was a 146 grain Speer SWCHP, over a lot of 2400 powder. It was a deer killing machine. Most of the deer were shot at under 30 yards. Bullet placement was usually through the heart and lungs. No head shots.
Yes, I think you can successfully hunt whitetails with a .357 revolver.
