    What would be your dream hunt -if you could go anywhere in the world and hunt one or two species of animal ?

    And what would be your dream rifle of choice for that hunt ?
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Mine would be a predator calling trip to africa for hyena and blackback jackal.

    I'd use my 25-06 rem. 700 for sentimental reasons -had it since 1979.

    A two week long float-trip in alaska or NWT would be great to...neither one too far fetched i don't guess.

    Dream Hunt

    Stone sheep in British Columbia, combined with Mtn. Caribou. Actually while we're dreaming here, might as well through Moose and make it a 21 day affair.:D

    Mike an african predator hunt would be cool, when are we going?

    I think some type of big cat would be cool, maybe a high mountain hound hunt for cougars. Throw in a couple of wolf tags.

    You know what rifle I'd bring, my 25-06A.I.

    Dream

    High country Mule Deer hunt for a 30 incher. Then followed up with a moose. Of course I would have to be hunting with my Dad and brother to share it with.

    But if i can kill one animal in my life..it would be a typical 30 inch mule Deer.

    I'm with gamedog, give me a brownie hunt in Alaska. I'd be carrying Shawn Carlock, well in a way anyways lol. I'd want to have a lighter .338 edge accompanying me :)

    Dream Hunt

    My dream hunt would be a wide racked whitetail (20 inches plus) and or a healthy (500 lbs.) black bear @ long range
    with my 7rm or better yet a custom .260 in my new home state of NC.

    I'm a huge Coues deer nut but I'm lucky enough to get to hunt them pretty regular... So I'd have to say my dream hunt would be a Marco Polo ram. And while we're dreaming, I'd like to shoot him last day, at about 850 yards, with a brand new completely tricked out 7mm AM :D.

    My dream hunt would be off to alaska to hunt a boone and crocket caribou at long range of course and then change camo and be off to the high mountains of afganistan. Where I could fill my Al Qaeda tag from long range. Not sure how I would judge a boone and crocket Al Qaeda but I would figure something out :)

    I would love to go to Africa or someplace with really large animals so I could use my collection of weatherby rifles to their full extent. Would make all I have done worthwhile indeed. Course I would take a good camera also so I could photographically shoot as well.
