I am a newbie interested in hunting. As most newbies, I was wondering what kind of gun I would need to hunt deer in the southern states. I live in GA. I have read about people getting a .22 LR Rimfire for hunting with first. Not sure if I could hunt with a .22. I also own a Benjamin Franklin pump pellet rifle and an Ithaca M-66 .410 shotgun. I guess those would be good choices for practicing with to build up my shooting skills. As far as a deer hunting gun, I am clueless. Any suggestion would be helpful.
