Based only on your first-hand experience, what wild animal or bird did you find most difficult to hunt and why?

For me, it would be Eastern Wild Turkeys while hunting with a shotgun. Nothing goes undetected by a turkey's eyes. As I heard a fellow turkey hunter once say, "If wild turkeys had a deer's nose, you would never see one."

Through all my years, I'd have to say Snipe. Been hunting them for years and have still yet to see one

Yep, it is the Snipe. Hard to see and they got to be the fastest flyer out ther. Shot placement is critical.

Bow hunting Nilgai on the king ranch. Easy with a gun, not so much with a arrow.

I would have to concur on nilgai. I hunted them at Laguna Atacosa and they were very difficult, even with a gun. These public land nilgai are VERY heavily hunted so they are wild as hell. Great eyesight, nose, and hearing. They run like a scalded ape at the slightest hint of danger. Made public land whitetail seem easy.

Coyote here in the hill Country. If they made it this far they have some smarts.

The American Woodcock , used to have quite a few on my old place. Those things would hold tight until you almost stepped on them them bust out straight up into the air.

Are we talking animals that arnt pressured or heavily hunted, scared to death every second animals?


I'd have to say either aoudad or elk have been the most challenging.

Stalking axis deer isn't very easy either.
