    Is it the Deer that causes you to spend hours in a tree like a squirrel....

    or is it the squirrel that causes you to spend hours looking up a tree....

    how bout' the turkey... the bird that causes you to sit all day while looking like a tree...:D

    :D

    I went rabbit hunting last winter and really liked it a lot, even more than turkey and deer.

    Deer hunting is my favorite hunt.I tend not to sit in a stand though, I rather move around little bit, or hunt along the small river that runs threw my property, but in any scenario I enjoy hunting very much and spend much time at it.

    Feral hogs are practice for everything else. Practice makes perfect. I love practice.

    Without a doubt, "WATERFOWL". It's a close race between Ducks and Geese. But if I had to break it down it would probably be Ducks, then Geese with Dove bringing up a distant 3rd, in that order.:)

    Quail.

    And I don't even have to have a shotgun.
    If fact, some of my best quail hunts are those I did not tote a shotgun. *yep*

    Big game for sure but I wish i did more bird hunting.....

    I often fall asleep in the woods. I know that sounds bad but I don't hunt on public land and its actually quite peaceful. How I still manage to bag deer is beyond me.

    Three letters, four hooves, one ghostly difficult animal to hunt.

    Was'nt listed but still fits in with catagorie, small game. COON Hunting. Hands down, coon hunting, I know the prices are way down but still. All the miles and miles of walking, falling down, keeping an eye out for Bigfoot,carrying around all thoes hides, a gun, lights, the rain, cold, stars. Man it's great. Coon hunting is #1.

    By a big margin, I love waterfowl hunting. I like the rest, but push comes to shove, ducks and geese are where I'm at! I guess I got addicted at age 14 because of all the places to hunt down here. I've never shaken that addiction. It might be rainy, it might be cold, but that's what they make goretex, thinsolate, and neoprene for. :D

    I have done none of the above and am quite jealous of you folks who have. I will be trying for the first time this year for both Deer and for Elk. I wish someone here lived near me in coastal Oregon, who has a lot of experience, because I am doing it blind this year. My friend who lives across the street has done some hunting and is going to show me some stuff, but he even says he is not a very experienced hunter. I am doing it on a shoestring budget too. Maybe you guys could give me some tips. I am reading all I can before the season gets here in October, but I am afraid all of the books in the world will not teach me like having someone who has done it show me the ropes.

    So Obviously I chose Big Game. :D

    Mikey!

    1. Ibex, anywhere in the worlds rough mountains.
    2. Moose--I have all 4 North American species and still like it--but the work!
    3. Mountain Sheep.
    4. African plains game.
    5. Elk.
    6. Quail.
    7. Sage Grouse.
    8. Geese.
    9. Coyotes.
    10. Deer (mule).
    11. Anything else!
    Waterfowl used to rate higher, and still would if I lived anywhere near any decent waterfowl. Same thing with Turkey. I used to really like it, but it is pretty much a non-entity in this state, and regretably, it's been several years since I've gotten to hunt them. I could travel out-of-state, of course, but with the needed scouting, etc., I just don't allocate the time. I really enjoy dove shooting, but again, where I live now, it's a one day deal (then they're gone) that occurs about every third year. Usually, they are gone before the Sept. 1 opening, a bummer, because they are here thick mostly all summer.
    At one time, Elk would have rated #1, but that was before I started hunting the current 1-4, and it still might be a toss up between #4.

    Waterfowl for me! Then would come small animals (squirrels, rabbits, crows, etc), then deer. The basis pretty much on how much time I have to devote to the types. The more I shoot, the more I like that type of hunting.

    It is difficult to choose between waterfowl and small game. I like them both about the same while big game is up there also it is just tough to get drawn in AZ and expensive and time consuming to hunt out of state.

    I can't stand to sit still too long so I can only walk and hunt. Quail, Pheasant etc.. If I was fast enough to run down a deer and shoot them I'd be all for it. Sitting in a stand all day bores me more than watching grass grow.

    I chose the big game option but in reality anything that has an open season motivates me the same.

    I like deer hunting cause its great practice for what I really love ELK baby! Oh and I have been doing more coyote hunting but I need to work on my tactics cause I don't seem to be killing many lately.
