@Narisse: I tried to trap the Mule Deer earlier myself, and it said that I could not. Not sure why, just that that particular pet was not trapable. I've seen that again on a few others - a gazelle for instance.
Just transferred to Madoran for the Warcraftpets guild. Got myself 22 new pets today :)

I'm an Arms Warrior and my husband used a Resto Shaman to heal me. We found that the best dinos to kill were the Pterrorwing Skyscreamers (the big birds). They dropped between 15-17 bones each, but they had less life than the other big dinos and also seemed to do less damage (50-70k a hit). Its main move- Skycall, can be avoided by not standing in the frontal cone (healer), or walking straight though the mob (dps) when fighting them. 999 bones took 4 hours total for me.
The flight path trick worked for me as well for getting a Minfernal. It was the Hellscream to Whisperwind path that finally worked for me. I tried from Org to Whisperwind, and from (flight path below Whisperwind, name eludes me atm) to Nordrassil. Probably did about 15-20 flights total before happening to get one directly under me at the right time. I did see Minfernals on every flight though.
Also got mine around Refuge Point
I found one as a secondary pet (to a Rat) in Hillsbrad Foothills just outside the Dalaran Crater.
