Not all that odd, but some have gone out of favor over the years.
Been doing some deer hunting with an 8x57 Mauser since I started out 55+ years ago, that belonged to my dad. I still tote one at times, now have three of 'em. The first deer rifle I bought myself, is a 1920s vintage M94 in 32 Special.
At one time had a 444 Marlin and a 1950s vintage 336SC carbine in 35 Remington. The 444 was of the original configuration they came out with in the late 60s, 24" barrel and "half" magazine.
Probably the oddest one in the bunch, is a M92 Winchester in 38WCF, made in the early 1900s. Not much of a deer round, unless the distance is fairly short. Although I knew an ol' boy in Genesee who took many deer over the years, with his.
All of the above have taken deer.
