Too broad of a question. Any shotgun can be used to hunt all of those animals. Gauge, type and length would be a personal choice in my opinion.

Not a fan of Semi's for foul weather fowl hunting. If I had to live with only one shotgun for all my hunting, I'd find a Remington 12ga 870 Wingmaster.

3.5" chambers if lots of snow goose gonna be shot at.

buy the best you can afford

do you have a budget?

Are you really going to hunt deer and pigs with it? If so, you would be best buying a separate rifled barrel for it.

If you got a low budget, look at the Mossberg. I cant remember the model but it comes with everything to hunt everything.

always loved a good 870 synthetic pump... dipped would be ideal not needed though... 3inch max is fine with me... 26 inch barrel for all around universal but fine with 28

870 pump or 391 or a5 are the most reliable in their field in my experience.
