I went on a back country elk hunt in the Scapegoat Wilderness Area in Montana a few years back and got a decent 5x5. I would definitely do that again. Lived in a little tent and drank out of a creek

Spring Turkey season is my favorite. I thought all trappers hunted Turkey in the spring.

Probably caribou, if you time it right lots of animals, and no two bulls look quite the same.

Spring Turkey ranks at the top for me...
Merriams


Rio Grand


Eastern

I killed this bird on tax day 2010, he has 1 3/4" Spurs, and scored in the NWTF record books 81.8125...

I used to chase whitetails, now I trap !!!

Really depends on what I'm hunting at the time. Elk with a bow in September or Mule deer with a rifle in October. I've had a heck of a time hunting Pronghorn too and I'd hate to have to give any of it up.

Whitetail here in the east. A gobbling turkey up close still makes my heart rev.

Never travelled to hunt, so whitetail deer for me. Would love to draw a moose tag back home someday, and would like to call a mtn lion as well

Whatever I have a tag for.
This year, in order
Goat, ox, deer, caribou

I enjoy a challenge in a hunt, something that pushes my limits, tests my mental toughness and that I grow from.

All of these hunts did that in one manner or another.

Mountain hunting is my favorite, goat, sheep, deer. And the musk ox I have shot have all been in goat country too.

I would love to shoot a moose, so I finally decided to go. My friend in AK tried talking me into a caribou hunt first but I kept declining because I figured this was a once in a lifetime shot for me. Then my wife said, go caribou hunting and see what alaskas like then go moose hunting the next yr. Hope I can get a tag now.
