    Just did my first backpack hunt, a dall sheep hunt in the NWT and got a ram and a mountain caribou. As much as I would love to do that every year, I will never have that kind of money and also want to experience other things. As background, I had been a southeastern whitetail and hog hunter my whole life up until this point, so it is all new to me.

    Have had thoughts of Elk, Moose, Red Stag, Antelope, Ibex. Not sure where to go from here.....not interested in seeking out a bear, and don't get very excited thinking about Africa.

    Gotta cool it for 2019 and save more $, but am wanting to start doing research for 2020.

    Any recommendations on what my next hunt should be? Any specific outfitters?

    I really enjoyed the challenge and fulfillment of the sheep hunt, the physical and mental exertion, as well as the preparation process leading up to the hunt, so would lean towards something similar in the near term.....figure I can hunt river bottoms and willows, and sit in tree stands when I am older.

    Wilderness elk hunt. Very demanding...and very addicting.
