What is the toughest animal pound for pound in north america?
My vote goes to the ground hog. The only animal I have ever seen take a 240gr hp in the cest at then bite at the bullet hole :shock: or fly 30´ after being hit with a 30.06 and them run 40 yards in the hole never to be seen again.

Those little bitty black bugs about the size of a pin head the sting like heck when they bite.

my vote goes to the lowly squirrel. he may not be the hardest to kill, but he's the hardest to shuck out of his skin.

On a pound for pound basis my vote would go to the Raccoon and the second most dangerous would be Teddy Kennedy after a few cocktails when he starts to shoot off his mouth. :-D :) :-D :) :eek:

I would think a badger or wolverine. Racoons are tough but I dont think they are in the same league as those two.

Wolverine. One of the meanest critters on the face of the planet. Saw a documentery once where one fought off a grizzly over a piece of rotten meat, They scrapped for awhile then the griz turned tail and ran.

You may have to shoot him off your foot...

I agree with Badnews Bob... the wolverine IS about the orneriest critter alive. There's been a good MANY eye-witness accounts of a wolverine running a big bear off a kill.

As one of the larger members of the weasel family, the wolverine fights like a "heavyweight", smells worse than a skunk... and has the disposition of scorned, red-headed woman with "PMS"!

Yep... I vote for the WOLVERINE as "the toughest"... 'cause he's meaner than a junkyard dog and makes a badger look almost beign, harmless & absolutely "friendly" by comparison! :-D


Strength & Honor...

badger or wolverine I don't know about we don't have any here in pa. All I know is those ground hogs for all the bigger they are sure can take a lot of punishment. I saw one once hit with a 40gr bt looked like he had a softball in his cest run 50yards and die on top of his hole.

How do you define toughest? That's the key to this type of question. When you know what you are looking for, you can then find it.

How about a "Pit Bull". I know Pit Bulls are a domestic animal, but they can be flat out.......mean and their extremely tough!!!

I have heard if a shrew weighed 15 or 20lbs it would about rule the planet.

To me mean and tough are two differnt things. I have heard elk are pretty tough but being I have never shot one as of now I can't say. I still just like to hear waht other people think. :D

The jackrabbit. First, he ain't a rabbit to begin with, he's a hare. The legs cook up tough as all getout.

But more to the point, I've seen 'em hit fair and square with a 38 Special, 357 Magnum, 22 LR, 44 Magnum, 30-06, 455 Webley, etc. ad nauseum and keep right on going in every case.

I put a 455 Webley right through the boiler room on one. When I tried to collect it, it out ran me, I never did catch up.
