Easiest souls to capture for gems?

What and where are the easiest souls to capture to fill up greater and grand soul gems?

So far I know of the Giants for greater soul gem and Mammoths for grand soul gem near whiterun. Where do you guys go to kill and fill a greater and grand soul gem at?

Dragons. Or people. Mostly people.
Black Star works as a reusable Black Soul Gem, so as long as there's no shortage of bandits or thugs, there's no shortage of souls.

Thanks for the post, but I just really wanted to know where the best place to kill and fill up greater and grand soul gems. I just started this game a couple of days ago so I'm not worried about black soul gems yet.

Dragons don't fill soul gems (at least they aren't supposed to). The fact that the Dragonborn acts like an Azura star soul-gem for Dragons is what makes him special. It's my understanding that normally dragon souls are uncapturable even if you kill the body of the dragon.

Edit: Otherwise, black soul gems are easily refillable with bandit souls and frankly easier to fill than fighting Mamoths and other top end monsters for grand soul gems. Enthir in Winterhold and Fallion in Morthal both sell black soul gems regularly.

I read you can also mine Geode ore mines in Blackreach for chances of soul gems but I dont know if they come filled or not. Dark falmer areas like that make my fps jump out the roof and I can't mine because my character goes into a funny animation.

Bunnies and people....Actually mammoths and giants are really easy if you sit in a place they can't get you and use a soul trap enchanted bow.
