        Bow, rifle, shotgun slugs, rifle. Muzzleloader side and inline. Waiting for an upclose chip shot to notch one with a pistol. Have to say muzzleloader is my favorite. Muzzleloader is the best thing in my opinion to help teach patience.

          Archery with a compound bow and recurve....no longbow or crossbow. Yes to a muzzleloader, but no to flintlock. Killed a deer with a 44 revolver. Rifle calibers I believe .30-30, .270, 30-06, and 7mm mag. Might've killed a deer with a .243 when I was younger. Killed a doe with a shotgun slug as well.
          -
          And unfortunately, last but not least, I have killed multiple deer using my car as a weapon.

            I've killed deer with the following;
            3 different Knives - 4 inch, 6 inch, and 8.75 inch
            Spear - thrusting, not thrown
            Compound bow,
            2 different Crossbows,
            2 different single-action revolvers in .45 Colt,
            Pump-action 12 gauge with slugs,
            Inline 50 caliber ML,
            Bolt-action 308,
            Bolt-action 30-06,
            2 different Semi-autos in 30-06,
            Single-shot 45-70
            (Most killed with the 308, used the knives and spear to finish deer that were wounded)

            I hunted deer with the following but didn't get a shot/kill;
            Double-action revolver in .357 magnum
            Bolt-action 16 gauge,
            Bottom-lock 58 caliber ML
            Electrical ignition 50 caliber ML
            AR in .223
            Mini-14 in .223
            SKS in 7.62x39
            2 different bolt-action 7.62x54R

            This season I will use an AR in 300 BO and a bolt action 6.5 Creedmoor.

            I'm also waiting on the opportunity to use single shot rifles in 243, 357, and 30-06

                Compound bow and rifles in .243, .30-06, and .270WSM. The first two rifles were borrowed in my first few years of hunting. The .270WSM is sitting on a gun store shelf as I just replaced it with a Savage 11 .308.

                EDIT-
                Having read a couple of the others had me thinking. One was finished off with a traditional ka-bar. I don't usually carry that knife hunting but I was heading back out to track and had an idea of what I was in for based on having jumped it while tracking earlier. That was a bit more exciting than a simple stroke of mercy and not something I want to repeat.

                Also, largely because of opportunity and time spent pursuing, I think I've taken exactly the same number of deer with bow as I have with a rifle. Rifle had a head start, and my success rate is higher, but a lot of years I don't even get out during our short regular season.

                  It's interesting you list 22lr. I know someone who used 22 shorts to kill a doe and someday I'd like to take one with a .22 magnum.

                            Lol, just live long enough and you can develop a decent list. Look at the answers from Treestand, Country Road, JhJimbo, Dewman, and JM. Milldawg is just modest and didn't list calibers. I bet Happy Miles on F&S has us all beat. Recently he listed calibers he's used on Elk and that was very impressive.
