I put down Hogs/Javelina and Caribou--I love hunting them and they offer the novice bowhunters the ability to mess up, as there are usually plenty of willing victims in the area.

Great animals to introduce newcomers to bowhunting-

Moose, Elk and Mt Lions are on my short list--

Well, I voted for moose and caribou, although I have never hunted either (yet). Those are my dream animals and I think the stalking/still hunting would be awesome. If I have to choose animals that I've hunted before, then I'm going with whitetails and pond pigs...er, I mean...carp.

That wasn't fair! I wanted to check more species.

I chose whitetails because I get to hunt them often and moose because of where you get to hunt them.

Jame, I too love to bowfish the wet critters. Carp and alligators are fun to shoot.

Terry, how are the gators for eating? I've heard mixed reviews on them when it comes to table fare. I assume it just depends on how they are prepared.

James: One of the club members had some gator meat rolled in batter and deep fried at the annual Carp shoot a few years ago. If I remember right it was the tail section only.

While I am not a big fish eater the gator meat was good.

Jame, it is excellent! To me it tastes a lot like pork. I cook a lot of it up as "gator bites". Small chunks rolled in my favorite fish batter and deep fried. Very tastey! I'll make up a bunch of gator bites and then add them to some chinese dishes. I made up some alligator ala orange for a local rabbit hunt and unless everyone was lieing, it was good!

The tail and jaw meat is the best. It is all white meat. You get into the legs and it is red meat and that really isn't very good.

Really? Now see I would have guessed it more as a shrimp, not pork. Either way it sounds like something I need to try.

Mountain lion backstraps...now THAT tastes like good pork!

Bears and the country they live in call to me.. I grew up bowhunting in my Missouri riverbottoms chasing whitetails but I love bear bowhunting even more. Spot n stalk black bears is the most fun bowhunting I've ever had. After bears give me a Kansas creekbottom every fall day. You never know what could walk under you at any time. What a whitetail paradise!!

I live to be in the "elk woods". They live in some of the most beautiful parts of the world and they taste so good. Just nothing like hearing that bull bugle in the early morning light...gets the hair to stand up on the back of my neck everytime!

What ever is in season. Elk and Whitetals are high on the list. American antelope are low. I'd rather hunt almost any North American animal than anything else I've seen, 'cept maybe Embogo or Kudu.

Elk are my favorite so far. I haven't hunted moose or bear with my bow yet. I enjoy whitetails because I get a lot more opportunity to hunt them.

BTW Biggie, are we talking all you can to of line buffet or once through type. Is there such a thing as a bad buffet? Actually, I totally agree with your read on it when it's going on for any species during their rut. Nothing does really compare.

First choice would no doubt be elk. Their bugles give me chills down my spine, and the country they live in calls like no other.
Second choice would be elk, and after that, more elk.
I love almost any type of hunting, but elk are far and away at the top of my list.

My favorite animal to hunt of all time is the Roosevelt elk that haunts the Oreegon coast. Well known as the "ghost of the coast"

It has to be the Whitetails but Black bears are one of the coolest animals to be around also.

All of them are my favorite. Many a good elk hunt has been paused due to a good grouse hunt! For me it is about being out and about!

I hunt whitetails mostly because they're here in my back yard. Fun, yes...but I've grown somewhat indifferent to them. It's probably the constant contact (daily) with them that makes them feel almost semi-domesticated to me. I'd probably feel differently if I lived away from them.

I can't opinionate on any animal I've never hunted.

I'm currently having an infatuation (several years long) with big Alaska-Yukon moose. I also love caribou in the far north, and would hunt them every possible chance.
