Another quick one that I should probably have revised first.

Search high and low for animal you seek

Unmoving now, it's gutless joints are weak

Quietly breathe and simply clear your mind

Luck has brought about unburied find.

Check your aim, but hurry, time is short

Press the trigger expect no loud report.

Shot down-range must more than hit its mark

Good hunters compensate for bullet's arc.

If shot is true to hunter's aiming eyes

No need to stuff or mount this dead buck prize.

1) an anteater finding some ants

2) a frog snagging a fly midflight

Neither of those.

Cross Bow Shoot at a Carnival (funfair)

I see where you're going and you've got the right idea, but there are two clues that don't quite fit this (although one is iffy).

You're definitely thinking correctly, though.

Here's what I was thinking

Either the water gun game at the carnival (shoot the clown's mouth) and win a prize... OR A policeman doing a radar speed trap.

can't see how it fits in with all the clues, but I thought I would try.

Neither of those, but the first (along with MikeD's first guess) have found the right beast.

Not quite that, either.

I don't know how it fits, but your clues make me think it is

A roller coaster.

a crane game? Not sure is this is the actual name, but the big glass enclosure where you control a crane/claw and try to drop it on a prize.

Could it be one of the games where you have to shoot little moving targets, like in Despicable Me?

Besides the obvious stuff, these are parts the other answers haven't quite gotten:

Search high and low...

You have to wait and look around to find the top-scoring target.

...unburied find...

They often swing up from under the scenery.

...must more than hit its mark...

You have to hit the target just right in order to knock it over.

That's what I'm looking for.

Search high and low for animal you seek -- I always see people looking into these things and pointing out "cool" prizes

Unmoving now, it's gutless joints are weak -- It's stuffed (or at least not living)

Quietly breathe and simply clear your mind -- Preparation rituals; I've literally watches someone take five minutes analyzing before trying.

Luck has brought about unburied find. -- You can only get the things on top. I'm convinced of that.

Check your aim, but hurry, time is short -- Checking the location of the claw from side and front while battling that little countdown timer.

Press the trigger expect no loud report. -- Pressing the button

Shot down-range must more than hit its mark -- Hitting isn't good enough

Good hunters compensate for bullet's arc. -- The arc of the claw arm and getting it around the target

If shot is true to hunter's aiming eyes -- if you catch it

No need to stuff or mount this dead buck prize. -- It's ready for display.

Btw, I hate the crane games.

Thanks for playing.
