so I could hunt deer with my 17 rem mag.   yikes.

Here in TX it's the same way, but we don't have capacity limits. I could hunt deer with my Kimber Ultra Carry, or a .38 Snubbie.

I have hunted with and harvested 2 deer with my Glock 21 .45 acp, both shots identical, deer facing me and eating forage on the ground, spine shot just to the rear of the head, in humans , the medulla area. 1 at 25 yds, the other at 40 yds, both dropped like a stone. Killed my biggest buck with a .223, because it was in my hand, and the big boy stepped out, neck shot at 80 yds, 9 point that totaled 154 B&C. Shot placement is key.

I have a friend who has been known to hunt hogs with his Glock 30. And I wouldn't hesitate to use my G30 on a deer if I knew I could make the shot.

A lot of nightime meat hunters in the southern states have the 17 HMR as the weapon of choice.  Light recoil, light weapon, ammo is relatively quiet in comparison to other ammo, cheap to buy and they take a lot of deer.  Code word is to "keyhole" them in the ear hole. 

Shot placement is always a key in dropping game.

Game wardens pick up a lot of those 17 rimfires with big ole' scopes on them at night.

Used to be .22 shorts (subsonic) with a baby bottle nipple at night. Still, not the way to go. For the money and a multi-tasker, SKS is fine. A deer rifle and nothing else? Just get an '06. 180 grain  in jacketed SP is fine for anything from ugly brush out to 300 yards.
