Proposal for .223 for deer?

I just got my KDWP magazine and read that KDWP has proposed allowing the use of the .223 for deer hunting.
Has anyone heard of this?

March/April issue. It actually came from a response to a letter written to the editor on page 34.

Yes, I see it now. How about the guys using the older, bargain brand stuff instead of the "newer cartridges with greater velocity, weight and energy upon impact". Well, I guess it's ok for for the military but then, their aim is to incapacitate not necessarily kill. Think I'll stick to something heavier. I'd have better luck throwing my mini-14 at a deer than shooting at it anyway. Definitely NOT my favorite gun.
