Since I have a Marlin 1894 S 44mag to hunt with the next deer hunting season, I figured a 44mag handgun to go with it would be nice.

I've got to get used to shooting it, get a better stance and not anticipate recoil; but I think I'll get the hang of it soon enough. That kicked harder than the 45colt derringer, I didn't expect that.

I like my SBH, I have hunted with it , I have been hunting with a handgun only for the last few years,
Ive not got a deer yet , (aint seen one) but I keep going.
I figger anybody can get em at 100, 200, 300 yrds with rifles, but I want one with a handgun.

The SBH will do its part.;)

Last year I hunted with a S&W XVR 460 magnum.:)

Now Im lookin at a .50 cal CVA muzzleloader pistol.:D:

Easier to pack around too.:cool:

I've harvested a deer with my 357, hopefully I'll be able to shoot this just as well when the time comes. The round I'll be using shoots 400fps faster.

I deer hunted with a magnaported 10 1/2" New Model Super Blackhawk with scope for years and got several deer with it out to 80 yards. Most of my deer have fallen to handguns. I've only shot a few with my muzzle loader and 44 magnum T/C Contender or a bow. Now I'm planning on getting my Desert Eagle ready. I love handgun hunting,even for squirrels :D.

I too have the Marlin 1894 and a 3-screw SBH. I use the rifle for Cowboy Action Shooting and the SBH for hunting. Only been using it for a couple of years and also have not gotten a deer yet.

I like them quite a bit. My hands don't fit the stock grips and every now and then the trigger guard would reach back and bite me. They do look pretty good.
The new grips I got seem to make for a better griping surface, and the gun moves less during recoil.

My hands aren't so large, so I have to change my grip a bit to reach the hammer; but that is a minor inconvenience.

Those are nice looking grips!

I also use my 686 for groundhogs and such, but I usually don't hunt with it for anything but deer.
Desert Eagle would be a hoot to hunt with! Good luck!

Hopefully one or both of the 44s will get a deer this upcoming season, I am trying to get someone to use one or the other over their smooth bore shotguns.
