My deer rifles have 3 lb. pulls, due to the colder temperatures and wearing gloves. Besides, a deer, even at 300 yards, is a pretty large target, compared with trying to shoot tight groups on a target range. There are also no scoring rings on a live deer, so missing by a half-moa is not a problem, even at 400 yards. Range centerfire rifles that I own are usually set at 2 to 2 1/4 lbs, but .22LR range rifles may be down to as little as 1 lb. Jewell Rimfire Benchrest rifle triggers, when I competed, were 2 ounces.
