Shotgun ammo is pretty damn cheap and a shotgun can also double as a home defense gun. That is what I would go with. Look into the Mossberg and Remington 870. Don't buy a strictly tactical model if you are wanting to hunt with it. A lot of the stuff can be switched out on them. In your price range, I wouldn't buy a semi-auto. I would buy a pump action.
