My family in is the U.P. of Michigan. Deer up there are bigger than the deer in Texas. My mom has hunted with a .222 for the past 18 years and has nevere failed to fall a deer. Everyone in my family only shoot neck shots and we very rarely have to track down our deer, it's usually DRT but no more than 15-20 yards away. As has been said it all comes to shot placement and your comfort with your abilities. The last deer I took 11/2006 was with my dads .243(I usually use my Marlin 30-30 but had to leave it in AZ), dressed out at about 150lbs., neck shot DRT.
