But for deer?

The last time I had an opportunity to shoot a deer with a firearm I was so close I couldn't find it in the scope and couldn't take a responsible shot. I decided a handgun would be my next hunting purchase. I also picked up a monopod yesterday to use as a carry-along rest.
.....The use of rifles or handguns to hunt turkeys, waterfowl, or any other federally regulated migratory game bird (except crows) is prohibited. The use of handguns to hunt deer is prohibited.....

Shane is very serious with this hunting business. In the last four years of hunting in Illinois, he has gotten multiple good kills each year and every time but one. He really agonized about that one because he knew the deer wasn't going to die quickly. It truly wore on him. He almost quit bow hunting, but I think it steeled his determination instead. Shane has excellent aim and has been bow since he was a pre-teen. He also shotgun hunts and does very well at that too. He knows weaponry from his Army training as well.
I like guns too. How much recoil does Ms. Painless have?
