Not really considering any new purchase. I have a 10/22 and a AR-15 that I would use for groundhogs. Also have a Garand that I may consider hunting deer with some day just for fun but it won't be my go to weapon. Maybe if I were to buy a new upper for my AR some day I would consider something that would be better for deer than .223.

No & No. Even if I had one I would not likely use it for hunting.

I don't own one as I see no need to. Legal to hunt with or not I won't get one.

Nope. I waste enough ammo with a bolt action.

I'd probably carry a semi for coyote calling. But, otherwise, no interest in any other type of hunting with a semi rifle.

I've always wanted a browning bar Belgium in 338 win mag. So if we're able to use them I would buy one just to bear hunt with. Maybe within the next couple years I'll buy one.

Never had any interest in owning one and won't go buy one now. I have perfectly good bolt and lever guns that seldom get any use now.

At this stage in my life, I get much more enjoyment hunting big game with one of my flintlocks, so I'll stick with them.
