Not in any particular order...

Red stag-New Zealand
Lion-Africa (where??)
Brown bear-AK

Either one is replaceable w/ the elusive blacktail right here in my home state. While I've hunted for them, TAKING one is still yet a dream.

I've hunted dern near everything I wanted in my life. There is only one critter I want to hunt before I give up the ghost, a feral hog. I want to hunt, shoot and eat it. I've a friend in TX who's invited me for a hunt any time I'd like to so I've got to get off my duff and take him up on it. I'd like to shoot an elk too. Hunted but never shot one.

Moose, Big Horn Sheep, Caribou, and maybe mountain goat. I got both the local elk and deer.

Id like to hunt, Kodiak, American Buffalo, Crocodile, those tiny deer in Africa, Caribou
Shot placement is everything! I would rather take a round of 50BMG to the foot than a 22short to the base of the skull.

all 26 of my guns are 45/70 govt, 357 mag, 22 or 12 ga... I believe in keeping it simple. Wish my wife did as well...

Big 5

My big 5 would have to be those five squirrels with a muzzleloader. "5" being the daily limit here.

Spain for fallow deer and barbary sheep.

Argentina for red stag and blackbuck antelope.

New Foundland, Canada for moose, caribou, and bear.

Texas for addax and symitar horned oryx.

New Mexico for gemsbok, mule deer, and elk.

Fire up the grill! Deer hunting IS NOT catch and release.

1. Big bull elk 350+
2. A nice big buck; muley or coues.
3. Bear called in with varmint calls, in stuff so thick I have <50 yds visibility.
4. Mt. lion
5. AZ antelope

If I do all these things I'll be very happy. So far I've done none of them. I've shot plenty of "meat" deer/elk but no trophies. I'm mostly a meat hunter so I'm kinda happy either way. A trophy animal would be awesome, but any hunt backed up by a barbecue is good enough for me.

How could I forget bigfoot! If I get one, I'm taking the feet to Tucson for my Mexican friends to cook for me. They do feet good as they can be done, at least with hogs

Have yet to get out and shoot anything i can eat, skin or mount yet so my aspirations are pretty low. Some hunts i think would be fun though...

1. Hogs. My duty as a Texan to kill and eat hogs, I think.
2. Whitetail with one of those 30-06 double rifles.
3. Squirrels with a .50 caliber muzzleloader, "barking" them Davy Crockett-style.

Someone on here once mentioned his dream was to bow-hunt the African Big 5. he said it "would be exciting". Frankly, i must agree.
