Hey and welcome.

I have two of the older .44 carbines, the tube feed models. You don't say if yours is an early tube model or the newer magazine fed version. Inside 100 yds, a .44 mag carbine is plenty of deer gun.

I've shot enough deer with mine to feel very certain of that. My rifles are not very accurate, and using lighter bullets seems to help, but I cannot recomend a light slug .44 round in good conscience. The .44 is a better killer with heavier slugs, if your rifle will s hoot them accurately.

BTW, my Dad had a .44 Win '94 and killed a number of deer with it as well.
