re: anyone carry a sidearm while Deer hunting? (Posted on 2/10/13 at 7:53 pm to Choirboy)
Normally I carry a Ruger Mark II for popping squirrels and coons and if I need to finish something off. But I have actually killed a deer with a S&W Mod 10 2" 38 special on a bet. Shot it behind the ear with a +p at about seven yards.

EDIT: I think I get what you're saying. The use of a period would probably have cleared up the confusion.
I bow hunt 90% of the time even during rifle season. When its rifle season I carry my 9mm when I'm bowhunting. My rifles are semi-auto rifles so I have 4-5 shots w/o the bolt so I like my chances. I mainly rifle hunt when I take my kids. Any other time I have gotten to where I just prefer the bow, a treestand and my 9mm.
