The deer didn't drop. Took a while. I've drop deers with a Marauder .22 (30ft lb) in it's track with head shot. I mean drop straight down, no running off and then dying. It's all about shot placement. I wouldn't used a .177 on a deer, but a .22 with at about 30ft lb will drop a deer. There's many videos of it on youtube.

.22 Marauder? Unethical (and illegal) I’m sure those deer lay there, kicking and flailing until they’re finished off humanely.. .22 Marauder would skip right off a deers skull unless it’s very close range on a 90 degree angle. A lot of things “can” be done, but shouldn’t and why advocate for something so sketchy.
