.40S&W is a better caliber for woods walking and hunting. Personally I have a G27 and a Walther PPS in .40 that I use when out in the woods. The G23 should do you just fine.
I carry a g23 if I'm deer hunting or not. No more trouble to carry hunting than it is on any other day.
Oh and one of the properties I hunt is adjacent to a medium security prison.
