    The leopard.

    It can carry its kill that can weigh up to three times its own weight on top of trees to consume it there, safe from lions, and hyenas. It hunts almost in completele silence, able to sneak up on almost any animal.




    The tiger.

    Unlike the leopard, the tiger are the apex predators in the countries they're found. Able to bring down even a large ox, they're also known for having the highest kill counts when it comes to humans, and shown to be very elusive against hunters. Its fur makes it able to blend in and catch its prey by surprise.



    The wolf.

    Unlike the big cats, wolves hunt in packs and do not have to sneak in so close where they're just a single jump away from their prey. They sneak up, pick a target from a herd, and run until the one the alpha male has picked is out of stamina, and bring it down. They're able to bring down buffalo, an animal about four times their own size thanks to their team work.



    Some other animal?

    Probably a mustelid of some type, like a mink or marten. Those things are relentless hunters.

    I've watched a few videos of badgers hunting, and unlike wolves or felines, they basically just charge straight ahead not giving a fuck. Helps of course that they're insanely tough, and have near endless stamina.

    Your average house cat is also an insanely skilled hunter. My own late cat, used to hunt bats, birds, mice. The way she killed bats was awesome. She'd wait for the bats to fly out when they were going to hunt, and then leap up and catch them.

    I was going to mention house cats or domesticated cats. Little monsters that watch us sleep. Vicious and unforgiving. My brother's cat had a habit of going after ground hogs. More than once I've looked out his window to see a ground hog running away while it had it's claws dug into his haunches.

    Humans AINEC. Given a long enough distance a human can outrun any other animal on the planet.

    depends on the human I guess but I personally know plenty with a low success rate. So low I wonder why they even bother to purchase a license and keep going out each season.

    Humans have hunted multiple species to extinction. Let me know when any other punk ass animal can make a similar claim.

    I don't see my name mentioned anywhere in the OP. I even did a Ctrl F search for it just to be sure

    List is invalid
