Thinking about handgun for deer hunting and or hogs. suggestions please

I prefer a revolver. I can reload 45 apc, 357 mag as well as 44 mag. I have owned all three before but never hunted with them. 44 mag was a little to much for me but I am open.

.41magnum for deer in Georgia is excellent cartridge. Takes down the deer. I wonder if a heavier .44 load would be needed for a hog though.

Hogs go down easy with a head or neck shot.
10mm,. 41 or 44 Mag will put one down too with a heart, lung hit.
