Sharpies, huns and bush chickens(ruffed grouse) my preference is bush chickens they are pretty slow and good for beginners and they are all white meat like a domestic bird. Second is young sharpies then huns they just don't yeild enough. But i like every part of hunting from the stalk to eating the rewards of the work. All are pretty easy to find in my area. In an afternoon if you know where to go you can get your limit of each. But i have never used a dog that would make it too easy.
