Don't see why not. I prefer optics on a hunting revolver, but that's easy enough to accomplish. Caliber .44 mag is plenty for pigs/deer. Just load it with a 300 gr or more hard cast hot load that shoots straight and go for it.

While .454s, .460s, .480s, or .500s get a lot of press, they're excessive for deer/hogs and frankly for my pocket book. Even the price of brass would put me off on these guns. The .454 and .460 will at least handle a .45 colt case, a bonus. If you don't handload, though, the .44 mag is a better choice IMHO, at least on a state salary. LOL
