Handgun hunting for deer is fun, challenging and we hear about more hunters picking up a handgun each year.
Hunting with revolvers has been a favorite for many years. Whether it’s a Smith & Wesson .44 Mag, a Freedom Arms Model 83 or a Thompson/Center single shot model with interchangeable barrels, deer hunters have numerous options in style and caliber.
In the last couple of years we’ve heard about more hunters using a 10mm handgun for deer. Check out this cool video from our friends at Realtree Camo as blogger Adam Millard goes deer hunting with his 10mm.
