I'm not too sure exactly what you were asking. When you say "hunt/shoot", I had to decide whether you were asking what I hunt the most, or what I shoot the most. I shoot several hundred jack rabbits each year. I shoot a couple hundred 'chucks each year. I only shoot a couple dozen coyotes. But I spend a lot more time out hunting for those coyotes than the jacks or 'chucks, so I voted coyotes. Sad to say that I haven't spent but a couple hours total shooting prairie dogs for the last couple of years. I only shoot paper/targets when I have to, which is really only when I have a new rifle to work up a load for, so it comes in dead last by a mile.
I spend alot of time hunting coyotes, but when the going gets tough I will usually start chasing crows which for me is just as exciting to call. I do spend quite alot of time in the spring and summer shooting PD's, usually to the tune of 500-700 rounds, which for a non hand loader is all I can afford. Then there is the 2 turkey seasons and that usually amounts to alot of scouting and hunting but not alot of shooting...if any.
I go groundhog hunting then crows as they most because they are the most prevelant species that I target in the summer. Paper targets would be next, followed by the predator species. The last couple of years predator discussion here has sparked my interest in predator calling. So they should start ranking higher on the list. Sam
