After struggling to grab silver a few times I turned the sensitivity down all the way and this helped immensely. Key point is to memorize the paths of the big game and grab as many birds and small game with the shotgun as possible. Multiple kills of the same animal is the key to gold on these, so the big game kills with 300pts in the beginning can equal 1800pts near the end with the multiplier in effect.

Every stopping point has a "sweet spot" where you can just hold the reticle and rack up kills. Memorize these areas - it will likely take multiple attempts to learn the patterns.

Make sure you tap LB to activate the perks - sure shot, fast reload, and double magazine worked best for me. The first map took several tries before I learned the tricks, second map got it on the 3rd attempt, third map on the second attempt (rams move fast and switch to the shotgun to clear out the birds on the tower sequence), fourth map nailed it on the first attempt.

For Prairie Dog hunts - use the shotgun (attempt this after your story playthrough to unlock the long barrel, tighter choke tube, and auto receiver). For all but the final map all varmints are within range, even so keep your attention on the closest row of holes. Keep an eye on the critters you need (carrot 50, celery 100, turnip 200, radish 300). You get points for the time remaining, but to be on the safe side I purposely overshot the easy targets to rack up the scoreboard before moving on.

Definitely the easier of the two challenges. Again much easier with the sensitivity turned down.
