Gotta add another one. Being as we dont have any wild sheep down here and i aint made of money i would like to go sheep hunting once in my life. if i had to pick one it would be Dall Sheep. that beautiful white coat is just awe inspiring. I am also buying points for a Mt Goat tag in i think ID, gotta check my files. just something about those goats is majestic and kinda evil looking all at the same time.

I've got a life sized mountain goat behind me, looking over my shoulder, as I type this and a 1/2 lifesize black bear looking over the other shoulder. Also got a big six point elk on the living room wall.

My wife has been trying to talk me into going to Africa so that may happen in the next few years. We've got deer, elk and bear all over and sheep do interest me, like you said they do for you.

So......since you said "Dream Hunt".......that kinda means something that I'd normally consider a hunt I'd never go on.

So......for me, it would be Marco Polo Sheep. Beautiful animals with huge horns in totally amazing country. Hmmmmm....maybe some day if I win the lottery.;);)

Bison

All my life I have loved those huge animals and always wanted to hunt one.

I would want to shoot it at least 1000yards away with my 338WBX

The hugest big male with a beautifull hide to turn into a large rug.
Only problem they don't live here in Australia and unless I win the lottery I will never afford it.

Cheers Bill

Well... I'm not so old (but don't ask my Rug Rat), that I'm so set in my ways as to not be willing to try something else ;)

I'll try Wolves.

Actually, I have a family member that raises pedigreed Kobe cattle, and she has asked me on a number of occasions to "come on down for a visit... and bring that rifle of yours".

She occasionally has problems with packs feral dogs, and yotes. Normally, the cattle can defend themselves, but during calving season, it's an expensive problem. A pedigreed Kobe calf is worth the price of a nice car.

I used to whack the dogs with a 300WM, but the bullets were like the Everyready Bunny... they went through the dogs, and kept on going and going and going and going.

So she ponied up the cash for a new rifle a while back - a Sendero-II SS SF, in .264WM... it is down right un-Godly in what it does to a 40 pound canine, with 95gr V-Maxs at 3700fps.

So - there...
... I CAN shoot somfin besides cats ;) ;)

Alaska Tundra at the base of a mountain range in a drop camp for black bear and wolf. Late summer after the berries are ripe when the bears are gorging them selfs for winter.



I think just the remoteness of the Alaska frontier is in itself a trip of a lifetime.

Second choice would be NZ mountain Red Stag.
