    Whitetail deer. I had great times in New England chasing them through the forests of Connecticut and over the mountains of Vermont. My family also has some land in the Arkansas Ozarks that is open to me, though I haven't taken advantage of it yet.

    I would someday like to hunt in Arizona, but it's an uphill battle between the lotteries and finding time.

    I am with Mike on the white tail. I like to try a 270 on them one time as all we ever had was the old Winchester 30-30. Most of our shots were with in 75yds which the 30-30 does a fine job.

    Best Baldy.

    Best choice for me here in Ohio is whitetail. I think you need even more patience to sit for turkey hunting. Groundhogs are fun and can be challenging to stalk. I understand coyotes are making a presents here lately.

    Arond here its mostly whitetail or some kind of waterfowl. I wanted to get into squirrel hunting but don't have the time anymore. Never hunted waterfowl, don't really like them but alot of people hunt waterfowl around here. Whitetail is my game of choice. Unless you count old milk jugs full of water as a game.

    In order of preference:
    1. Paper (just 'cause it's real easy to clean)

    2. Axis

    3. Whitetail

    4. Dove

    Hi, New to the forum here and this is my first post. I'm more of a big game hunter and usually get the chance to hunt deer and antelope every year as long as I draw a tag. I've hunted Elk and wild pigs as well. I also hunt pheasants, doves and grouse and have been duck hunting once or twice (turkeys too). Priarie dogs are also a blast to shoot and I do that at every opportunity when it isn't baking outside. Below is a pic of a 5X6 (11 pointer you guys in the south)whitetail that I shot a couple of years ago with my AR15 (Wilson Combat UT15 with Burris 3x9 scope). 138 yards (via laser rangefinder) off hand, 1 round of Black Hills Ammo's Blue Box 55gr PSPs. No, I did not shoot him in the houseing area , I just didn't have a camera with me in the field.

    Whitetail is the game of choice at the moment. A friend bought a wooded lot south of Carbondale a few years ago and i've hunted his land the last 2 years with my 54 cal. muzzleloader.

    This year I'll try handgunning with my .357mag Python. Shots are well under 75 yds, so I don't think I'm underpowered with it. I haven't cronied my muzzleloader...would be interesting to see how the two compare.

    I've managed to scrape the $$$ together to hunt caribou and moose in Newfoundland once. Would like to do it again, perhaps add black bear as well.

    This winter I am planning to harvest a small bison in KS with my Marlin 1895, 45.70. I've told my folks to empty their freezers by November...

    For handgun hunting it's squirrels for the Buckmark, and whitetails for the S&W686. Squirrel hunting is more fun for me. Not so much sitting around, just more shot opportunities.

    Bears with nothing but a field knife... LOL J/K

    I think if I had to pick one for the rest of my life it would be Elk. Here in the Sacramento mountain range in New Mexico we get some beautiful Elk, if you ever get the chance to hunt New Mexico Elk do it, especially the muzzle loader season and Bow... and man do they taste good... now im hungry

    Whitetail Deer. NH has a long Bow Season so I'm usually hunting archery from 9/15 until early November when the firearms season opens and I switch to muzzleloader or firearms until the end of November. If I could only hunt one that would be it.

    Second would be turkey and third Waterfowl.

    Since there ain't any terrorist around here (that I know of) I'll have to say deer.

    Not being an avid hunter and therefore making this decision in advance, I would have to choose a class of critter; varmints. Small targets, fast-moving, hard to pick out, and it's a pest control measure, all of which would contribute to a sense of accomplishment even if what you shoot doesn't make good eats like squirrelling. Doesn't mean varmints can't make good eats; smoke the bejeezus out of a javelina or feral pig and it's pretty good, while rabbit stew is a classic.

    I also like catfishing in the various stocked lakes in Lubbock and Dallas, though it's mostly catch and release; I wouldn't eat a catfish that came out of any nearby lake. I've had better luck with catfish than others; put a worm on a hook with a bobber-sinker rig, cast for murky water and you can't fail.

    Pigs then deer.

    Pheasant is a rich mans game now so thats out. I got shot years ago while duck hunting so thats out. Haven't tried turkeys yet. Quail and dove are a kick in the pants.
