Haha !!! It'd be easier for me to list my run-of-the-mill chamberings..................

The list would be shorter.

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.

My first thought is the Kimber 84 in 17 Rem-223 Imp - Lefty that's occupying space here, but the one that got a bit of action recently is my new Henry carbine in 41 Rem Mag.

Find the time.....

Those Henry's are nice. I'm very fond of them. I prefer the steels over the brass.

My father was involved in a land dispute over in Europe back in the 1940s and brought home a 6.5mm Carcano carbine. I've taken a half dozen deer with it over the years, not because I don't have anything else to shoot, but because sometimes ya just gotta take dad's gun out.

Cool

Not really odd but unusual and not seen very much in the fall turkey woods would be my Ithaca/Tikka LSA 55 Turkey Gun O/U 222 Remington/12 Ga.
