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

swampgas chili and schmidt beer makes for a deadly combo

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 list….Musk ox. Not because I really want to kill one….I’d 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. They’re massive animals.

I’d like to kill a big Alaskan moose too. I’ve killed 11 bulls in NL, but never got anything over 48”. Those 60”+ 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.

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.
