Two of my friends and I are looking to take a trip to do something you can't do in Kansas. Some of the ideas we have thought of are a bear,Merriam turkey,mule deer or trophy duck hunt or a Canadian or ocean fishing trip. What have you done that was fun?

Our annual fly-in trip to Canada is amazing but Covid has sure put a damper on getting up there the last couple years and 2022 isn't looking very good at this point either.


I have nothing clever to put here.

Go fishing do in the Keys, warm this time of year and great fishing. But I am not talking deep sea fishing. Just normal fishing.

Go to Lubbock, TX and shoot sandhill cranes. They have thousands of them. Phenomenal taste and a fun trip with your buddies. Its really neat to be sitting under 1000 of them landing in the decoys for the first time


Gotta live up to the nickname...

How old are your friends? The biggest mistake I made was not doing more mountain hunting while I was younger and had good knees.

Don't go bear hunting, you will become addicted and it will ruin your life.

Lots of options from $1500 to $6000. Kind of like asking what a car costs. You'll have to be more specific.

I think one of those house boats on the Mississippi up around pool 4-8 would be fun.

eat sleep fish and have the little boat in tow to go on day trips and up into tributaries and such


America only has one issue, we have a Responsibility crisis and everything else stems from it.

If you've never been to Alaska. Anything in Alaska would be my choice. Fishing is your most affordable option.

Amen to that. I go to Alaska for a week every year Salmon fishing. Excellent trip. We go DIY and rent an RV normally plane ticket, rv rental, food, etc. around $2000 each for the week.

I have not done it, but I think fishing the Amazon River could be pretty amazing. There's some huge and exotic fish, plus interesting smaller species, like piranhas.

Salmon in alaska. Rent a motorhome and go. Seward, soldotna, etc.
I would pick August. Less people and still lots of fish.

Bernie. What about someone to put you on a baited stand and provide a place to sleep. We haven't agreed on a budget yet so it's kind of hard to get more specific.

I have been to Alaska. The other two haven't. A salmon fishing trip sounds fun.

Spring black bear in southeast Alaska. Find a lodge that has skiff rentals, and apply for and get drawn (pretty easy) for a black bear tag in GMU 2 (Prince of Wales Island)
Fish in the morning for halibut, ling cod, king salmon, then then hunt for black bear on the beach in the afternoon. Check your crab and shrimp pots anythime.
Long daylight hours.
Time this during the last week and a half of May.

I wouldn't mind doing an actual combined hunting and fishing trip...Maybe hide out at about -30 feet amongst some coral head in the Florida Keys, and hunt hogfish!!

For that your looking at the low end of those numbers. You can find someone who will do that for you in Minnesota, maybe Wisconsin and Michigan but it's getting harder to find since the time it takes to draw tags is getting so long. Some Ontario resorts that are just trying to put someone in the cabins after the summer season will put out baits for you, and charge you $2000 or so for just a couple baits and a cabin to stay in, but success rates are low because most of them are fishing resorts who don't know what their doing when it comes to bears and don't put much effort into it.

If you seriously want to go on a good bear hunt and have a high percentage chance of shooting a bear you are going to pay $2000-$3000 in the US for fully guided with lodging and meals. In Canada, it will be about $1000 higher than that.
