I am not seeing why the 7.62x39 in a bolt gun would not have decent accuracy. Will be more than good enough for deer hunting. There are some better brass cased rounds available for hunting also. Rem Express 125gr PSP, Win Super-X 123gr SP, fed Power Shok 123gr SP, Corbon "Hunter" Line and several others.
The SKS I have would have no problem placing an accurate shot on a deer.
