Greetings Swanshot from the other side of the "Commonwealth"
Your list of game to hunt gave me pause to consider how fortunate I am to live in the province with the greatest game selection of any province/state in North America. I just went to the game regs and counted that we have 71 different game animals listed. My favorites are as follows:
(Both Rocky Mountain Elk and Roosevelt Elk)
Moose (both Shiras and Canada)
Deer (Whitetail, Mule, Blacktail)
Grouse (5 species)
Quail (2 species)
Bighorn sheep (California and Rocky Mountain)
13 different species of Migratory game birds. (ducks, geese, etc.)
And the list goes on and on-we are truly blessed with this abundance of huntable game.
For varmit hunting the favorite here is coyote and some foxes. Also several species of Cats (Cougar, lynx, bobcat, etc)
Hope you get a chance to get up this way sometime-I have yet to get "down under" yet but it is big on my list of places I want to go to-have many Ozzies for friends.
All the best to you:
