I agree with sheep and goats. I too have never hunted them,partly because of the stories I've heard from friends who have. It takes a lot of dedication(and sometimes money too) and often miles of climbing steep terrain and staulking. Then the reward for success is the even harder job of getting your animal back to where you started,over the same miles of tough terrain!
My hat is off to those who do it. Thumbs up

I voted sheep...getting a trophy old whitetail may be challenging, but getting "a deer" usually isn't. (Except this year, for me Laugh )

Same can be said of moose, bear and elk. Provided they're in your area in sufficient numbers they're not really all that bright. Sheep may not be all that bright either (I don't really know) - but getting up to them and staying up there long enough to get a shot, and then getting your trophy back down is pretty hard on the body.

You guys should come hunt rabbits at my house. The famer who owns the land planted "multi-floro Rose" years ago as a Gvt pgrm for "living hedgrows" It has since taken over and will cut you to threads. My buddie and me hunt bunnies after deer season is over and ice fishing has not yet begun. When we come in for lunch my wife just laughs at us, we are litterly covered with our own blood.
So I vote for the Cottentail Rabbit (with big pointy fangs. [anyone a Monty Python fan?])
