If I lived up there I might say the same, but us cheechakos can't afford to make that hunt very often.

Deer first any kind.. Then birds any kind.. Then antelope for the reasons Tman mentioned.. Also coyotes.. No gutting, no tags, everyone is happy to have them shot...

For me it's a tossup between antelope and moose.

As related by T Inman antelope is low stress and flexible as to what time of day you want to hunt, plus my wife is my hunting buddy and I love being able to take her around the area we are hunting and setting her up to look at multiple bucks till she decides which buck she wants then set her up on the sticks for her chosen animal. We have made a lot of memories on those hunts.

Pretty much the same for moose when we got to hunt them. We know the area well, so finding animals was not hard. Even after the shot it was not all that hard. Good horses and good friends took a lot of the work out of it.

I have had many many wonderful Deer hunts with and w/o pards.
I've been on some REAL duck hunts in the Duck Capital of the world ..<Stuttgart Ark. area>

We had G S H pointers when I was growing up and Quail hunted a m a p. Miss hunting with my Dad.

I would love TO hunt mule deer (4 legged grin) & elk but haven't.

My FAVORITE hunting is Rabbit hunting with good Beagles. Tops in my book.
This is one of those Bitter Sweet things. Back then we did NOT have deer to hunt, period.
Now however EVERY where you go there are DEER out the yang and Rabbit hunting is near impossible.
I've had beagles that did not run deer BUT today there aren't nearly as many rabbit as there used to be.

I don't hunt deer from stands of any kind and I move.....I see few rabbits. It's been that way quite a while.

I guess predator hunting because it is so available to me and is logistically simple and always a challenge.

Mule deer, when possible, is special and you can get plenty of alone time in the eastern part of central/northern Nevada.

Then there is winter wolf hunting in Idaho and Montanagrin


so much fun, so little time.

Big sky spot and stalk. Pronghorn, sheep, caribou in the proper habitat. The fact that one can near always see one somewhere on the horizon can keep one going forever. even if he can't get there in a day. Enduring an entire season in some dense forest without ever spotting an elk can be quite disheartening.

^^This, same here except I grabbed an old L.C. Smith 16 and a handful of paper hulled shells...still love the smell of a fresh fired paper shotgun hull..

Antelope hunting every year, just enjoy the stalk and sneak on them as well as the same for deer.


You are the EXPERT, what do I know I'm just a shooter.

Whitetail deer hunting in the South, particularly on the Mississippi River with hounds. It was electric, started in 1966. To this day hearing a deer coming through the woods on a frosty morning makes the hair on my neck stand up, I love it. A good dove Hunt is a pretty close 2nd place. But deer just make me tingle regardless of size.
We had many hounds over the years, and they were a big part of the joy, I was the dog man meaning I took them out and got the deer jumped and the race started.
How lucky I am to have seen the sun rises I’ve seen.

Another vote for big mule deer here, and Gemsbok.


He spoke in tears of 15 years his dog and him traveled about. The dog up and died. She up and died....After 20 years he still grieves.
