How about shotgun slug hunting this year for Deer
You said that you currently have a shotgun. An option for this year is to pick up a 22 rimfire rifle and 22 rimfire pistol. Then hunting this year using your shotgun firing slugs. You will be limited in range compaired to a rifle, but if you have screw in choke tubes slugs are very accurate and deadly on Deer. If your shotgun has a fixed choke the older design foster slug is still very effective, just with a reduced range.
