that is to shoot a rifle on private land. To hunt deer with a rifle, the bullet must be bigger than 6mm.

i believe the minimum caliber to hunt with is .243 and up

.223 is not legal for Deer in CT.

6mm (.243) and larger, on 10+ acres, with written permission if you do not own the land.

Wasn't told the 2nd half i guess... so what happens if your plinking and a deer "darts" in front of your bullets while on private land?

Then you still would have been considered to be hunting. Possession of a loaded hunting implement is prima facie evidence of hunting. "Loaded" hunting implement includes a firearm with rounds in the magazine; a bow with the arrow notched; a muzzleloader with a cap in place or a primed pan (flintlock).

The deer would still need to be tagged, field dressed and checked in.

Forget using the .223. There are plenty of other options.
