S&W 17 in 6-inches has the best trigger, accuracy and portability combination for hunting. Try to find one with a target trigger and hammer. 4 inches will do. 8-3/8 can be more accurate, but it’s a bit heavier. The 617 holds 10 rounds, but the trigger pull is not nearly as nice.

Ruger, Colt, Taurus maybe okay, but the triggers are not as nice and you can’t do anything about them unless you’re a skilled gunsmith and/or want to spend a lot of money on them. You can lighten a S&W trigger with a $13 spring kit in five minutes.
