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.

Just my opinion, I find nothing interesting in the new budget priced rifles out there. I like nice wood and older stuff in great condition, those get my pulse running. To each their own on purchasing firearms, you have to be happy with it, that's all that really matters.
