    Yep, that would be close to minimum.

If you are a minimalist, one rifle in .22 for small game, one rifle in 30-30 or larger for bigger game, one shotgun with variable choke tubes in either 20 or 12 ga, one hand gun for carrying in the woods, one handgun for personal defense, and a larger closet for your wife's shoes. Otherwise have as many different types of each for the hunting scenarios that you hunt in the most, i.e. a carbine for dense woodlands, a longer barreled rifle for more open ground/longer ranges.
      I really like that shoe analogy! PigHuntress has a closet full of them!

        There's really several ways to look at this question and everyone took a good stab at the answer.

        For a minimum I would say a shotgun with proper choke tubes and sights could do the trick (just as IllinoisBurt said)

        For should, I would say shotgun, rimfire rifle, varmint rifle, deer rifle, big game rifle
