For me birds, squirrel, rabbit, deer and then turkey is the hardest . Hunting and being successful are two different things .

Hunting is a combination of skills, right environment, and luck.
Scenario #1 Deer hunting. Assume you know what you are doing. It's fall season. Just before sunrise. In a game-rich area. It's going to be a clear, brisk day. In a deer stand. No deer.
Scenario #2 Deer hunting. Some hunting skills, but LESS than scenario #1. Fall season. Early afternoon. Deer population below average. Cool but cloudy with rain soon. You've decided to quit for the day, walking back to your vehicle, and you catch a deer off-guard just long enough to get off a shot.
That's the way it SOMETIMES works.

Deer are the easiest

Like everything else in life - 'how hard' all depends on your training, skills, and experience.
Deer. When I started hunting deer I was a skilled competition shooter with no outdoor skills. I could not sneak up on one to save my life. I am still not that great. But I can hit one at 300 yards all day long. My wife laser ranged my last deer - 615yds. That said - 'deer' - they are not all alike! White tail require patience and great outdoor skills - Sitka deer in Alaska are an easy pistol shot.
Turkey - definitely need to have someone with experience literally take you under their wing.
Rabbit and squirrel - harder with a 22, easy with a 410 shotgun.
Birds - comes in too many species. Woodlands are easy pickings on the ground with a 22. Upland and Migratory - need experience, skills with a long reach shotgun, someone to show you the ropes.
You want to become a hunter? Get a decent dslr camera - not your freaking cell phone - and go take pictures in the off season. The skills you learn to find animals and get close enough for a great picture - exact same skills and experience you need for hunting. The big upside of the camera - you can do it the 40+ weeks a year when deer is closed and the weather is nice!
