All three subspecies of bighorn we have here in NV. Moose, caribou, elk. Iíve hunted elk before but never killed one. More likely to win a hundred million bucks playing the lottery that draw all 3 bighorn tags before I die of old age though lol

I have a friend whose brother in law does animal culling in Kruger national park.

I have an open invitation to go there and assist.

Apparently at times its just a flurry of shooting...tons of animals need culling apparently


I would like to make it over there for that at some point.

Bare ground lion hunt with hounds and mules. Second, a moose hunt in Canada, maybe mixed with a little fishing if the weather was decent.

Elk during the rut with a bow but I'm not sure I'm in good enough shape to chase them up and down mountains anymore. Always though a wolf would be really cool. I'd be happy with one stalk on a world class mule deer.

I've hunted and shot most big game animals native to North America. I would like to get a Dahl sheep, 200'' mule deer and go down to Wyoming or Idaho for a antelope hunt. Africa is something I'd like to do and a get in on a good gopher shoot.

I would say eastern Wyoming is a better bet for Pronghorn than Idaho.

I have my retirement moose hunt booked for 2024 in northern Manitoba. That's too of my list.
I would then go antelope, and 150 plus mile deer, shot a smaller one.

Ocellated turkey

Might be disappointed, unless you already know how they hunt them.

I took mine Alasan Brown Bear with Waggler as my guide.


If I had the money again ...I'd do that hunt again before anything else

You guys make me feel really blessed. I have done all of the Alaska game minus a goat. All I want is a King Eider and a dik-dik those little bitty antelope in Africa.

Thanks. We have Martin here in Idaho, I just never trapped them. I only lived in this state for 4 years.

Number one on my listÖ.Musk ox. Not because I really want to kill oneÖ.Iíd just like to see the country there.

A Kamchatka brown bear hunt would be a wild time too. Those Ruskie guides look like a hoot to hang out with. Hunting in the spring in deep snow, snow machines, bears coming out to hibernation. Theyíre massive animals.

Iíd like to kill a big Alaskan moose too. Iíve killed 11 bulls in NL, but never got anything over 48Ē. Those 60Ē+ bulls are a totally different critter. They make an Eastern Canadian Moose look like a calf.

Moose anywhere with a good population, but bonus if its in Alaska.
Axis deer in Hawaii. Recently got back from a 10 day vacation there now I kind of want to go back just to get one of those buggers. Didn't realize they had any deer there until I saw one.

Might be disappointed, unless you already know how they hunt them.



Actually, I do.

But, this is going to be a calling hunt rather than a roost shooting one. Not calling like here. But they use a FoxPro or similar e-caller and dekes to call the toms. It's not a traditional turkey hunt. But Ocellated aren't traditional turkeys.

I've been trying...........with basically zero luck.........to find Ocellated hen videos or recordings. I thought maybe I could build some sort of call.......... But I just am not finding much of anything.

the next two on my bucket list are Mule deer and Elk. But all time would be a Caribou and Moose combo float trip in Alaska.

I know of several that went out with those intentions and ended up doing it the other way rather than go home empty handed.
I need the Ocellated to complete my world slam, but just canít get motivated to kill a turkey that doesnít gobble and looks like a peacock. The only thing they have that are impressive are their spurs! They have some daggers for sure.
Wish you success and canít wait to read about the trip! And take plenty of pics!

I've been fortunate to take many of North America's big game, and a few species in Far Eastern Russia. Before I got too old and decrepit, my dream hunt was in Afganistan chasing Himalayan snowcock. I knew that was a no-go, so next on my list was the Ruby Mountains of Northern Nevada, where they have a season for Himalayan snowcock. I love Dall sheep hunting, and I love chukar hunting. Combine the two, and you got Himalayan Snowcock hunting. Nothing could be finer, in my warped opinion.

I've killed a bull elk, 2 black bears, and numerous whitetails. Another elk or bear does not interest me, but a big whitetail turns =me on

I never really thought I'd be doing this, either. But my cousin.................who's actually only hunted turkeys 2 days in his life...........convinced me we need to do this. He was with me on the two days I completed my pair of Royal Slams. He's an adventure seeker to the max............. When he heard about Ocellateds, he said "LET'S DO IT !!!!" So, here I am. Going whith my cousin and hunting with my buddy who is the preeminent Gould's and Ocellated outfitter .

Western archery bull elk, Michigan elk cow or bull, mulie, blacktail on Kodiak, Caribou, mountain goat, Michigan Red Oak unit black bear, Alaskan moose and maybe a sheep.

Headed to Colorado with a mulie, elk and bear tag this fall so hopefully get at least one knocked off the list. Kodiak is booked for next year for blacktail and maybe a Caribou if we can luck into a few. Hopefully I can pull a Michigan elk tag before I die.
