25-36 if you want any pelt, 38-40 is a 40 cal cartridge and will not do a nice clean blow through. Tends to reasemble them inside out. As for deer either should be ok.

25-36 all the way :!: I shot a couple deer with the 41 mag this year and was not overly impressed , and I don't believe the 38-40 will do as good a job as the 41 :? But having never hunted with a 38-40 I could be wrong , but i don't believe so :?
