Thats about all I can remember for the moment.... I like variety and I would probaby hunt deer with a speer if there was a season. If forced to choose a favcorite of the bunch it would be a tight race between the 742 and the Mossy Oak X. I still have the X but some sob managed to steal my beloved 742.

Good Lord I couldn't even begin to figure that out. I guess I'll just list the odd-ball stuff that most people have not used:

I am the only person that I know of that has killed deer (legally) with all four standarized rimfire calibers (.22 LR, .22 WMR, .17HMR, .17M2). That was while culling deer on kill permits in both SC and VA. In light of subsequent events (not my own by the way) our group uniformly decided to ban the use of rimfires for our purposes.... in short we had a few (two acctually) get away. Subsequently, I use a .204 when we are shooting in areas that noise is not a factor and a tricked up Mathews LX with a Hawg Lite for places that noise is a consideration.

I've killed three deer with a .50 BMG, during the same sort of operation in SC. Suppressed rifle, night hunt. 100% legal. I would not want to own one of those things.... the hoops you have to jump through... not to mention the price.... I can only guess.

On a legitmate hunt, I took a deer in SC with a FN PS90 (civilian version, longer barrel) chambered in the 5.7x28. That same year I shot one with my Kimber .45, and I am proud to say that its probably the only thing I have ever acctually hit with a handgun...I think it was pure luck... the story behind it is a classic, but I'll save it for another day.

I have killed deer with a compound bow, but not yet with a recurve, though it is on the list. Never with a crossbow, and until I am old and unable to bow hunt, I don't have any real plan to mess with it. I have also used a .50 muzzleloader.... but just scoped inlines... which are really just caseless rifles that are hard to clean and smoke a lot.

.330 Dakota. Too much gun.

12 gauge shotgun, using both slugs and buckshot. Probably killed more deer (during daylight hunts that is) with buckshot infront of hounds than any other. Grew up doing it that way. Still go every so often, more of a social thing for me.

Also killed a few with the 20 gauge and buckshot growing up. They have to be close, I lost a few when I was young (less than 10), even a few that were close. Some back up my Dad was on New Year's day when I was 8...

And I have never (touch wood) hit one with a vehical... though I have been close (very close) twice.
