+1 on a used rifle since they can be made deer-hunting-grade accurized 90% of time if they don't shoot well to begin with. I suggest investing your cabbage on a solid mount (my preference is a 1 piece with integral rings) and a good variable scope (for AL going as low as a 1x4 would be okay). Even if you stand hunt expect your rifle to get banged around. I hunt an area with a mix of hardwoods and open fields and I've yet to take a shot over 100 yards. I killed one this season that came up right at the base of the tree stand and I actually wished I had irons at the time. They often present just a brief and unexpected opportunity to shoot and you can waste a lot of time trying to sight through a scope for a close up shot.
