I would say that an SKS is a good hunting rifle, provided you know its limitations. The 7.62x39 is available in a 150 grain hunting load now, and accuracy is very good. It won't give you any improvement in the range, but it will surely anchor a deer within 150 yards.
The SKS isn't the greatest choice, but, it sure isn't the worst, either. If your son is big enough to handle one, then by all means, have at it. Not only will it make him a good deer rifle, but one helluva plinker, too.
