Carrying a handgun while hunting, in a situation where concealment is not of utmost importance, is one of the easiest times you will ever carry it. I see no reason not to. I too have used a .357 revolver to dispatch a deer after setting down my rifle. Tracking a wounded game animal, often done on my hands and knees, is easier if I can leave the rifle in my blind.
