Ruffed Grouse.

They tend to live in thorny thickets that are nasty walking. If you are lucky enough to find them, often the best you will do is to hear them flush. If you see them flash through the woods you are even luckier, if you get a shot it's a day for celebration, and if you actually connect and bring one down you feel like you won a gold medal. Good luck finding it once it's down, too! Good dogs make all this easier, but grouse are still the most challenging hunt.

We grouse hunters measure success in number of flushes, not by grouse actually taken.

I vote for the ruffed grouse with TheStig. Contrary to one poster, the jackalope has been caught. I saw one mounted in a bar in Texas years ago.

I can only speak for game in wisconsin as its the only state i have hunted, but have hunted almost everything you legally can and i would say hands down hardest to hunt is bobcats, that is if you ever see one. They are very aware and smart and unless you are using good dogs chances of seein one is slim to none.

Trickiest game to hunt

Chipmunks are cute, but destructive & elusive. I got my RWS sighted in yesterday in back yard and game on! Once in a while they'll stand still for ya and I've put down alot of them, but always more to take there place. They like to dig around foundation along basement to allow water in. I'm always on lookout & listen for there chirps.
Not as wild as hogs, mountain lions & bobcats.but still a challenge.
