Whats on yours to hunt

Mine is short, controlled by getting older and being retired, not wealthy.

1. Nilgai Bull
2. Aoudad with beautiful, long coat
3. Pronghorn over 15"
4. Elk, this ones a stretch but you never know. It will be a very expensive hunt, guided on private land. Got to be pretty much a guarantee cuz, I can go hiking here.

Got a nice pronghorn in WY this year, which was my first venture outside of Texas for hunting. I whiffed on a bunch of other tries at tags, but I'm starting to get active in buying points in states where you can do that.

realistic within the next few years:
nice mule deer
elk

kinda pipe dreaming:
caribou
moose

really pipe dreaming:
goat or sheep hunt

Fortunately, I'm starting at early middle age, so if I manage to stay healthy I do have a decent runway here...

In no particular order:

Marco Polo/Argali Sheep - somewhat reasonable elevation and temperature, not interested in not being able to breath and freezing to death at the same time

Dall Sheep

190" Muley, but I'd be very happy with a 180" buck. Would really like it to be a big, fat Rocky Mountain Muley

Mid Asian Ibex

Rocky Mountain Bighorn


For it is not the quarry that we truly seek, but the adventure.

Free range bull bison, Need to draw my Wyoming tag.

I have my B&C bighorn sheep, a mt lion, cow bison, bull elk, B&C pronghorn, nice mule deer and nice whitetail.


Buzzsaw I know some ranches in general areas in Wyoming that could get you on a nice bull elk for a reasonable price, well less than $10,000 for sure. No guarantees but very high success rates.

I want to chase mountain lions with dogs and go on some bird hunts that I haven’t made yet. Other than that I don’t have any other hunts I would be that fired up about that aren’t yearly occurrences.

I’d sure like to do some quail hunting next year. And it might sound a bit odd, but I want to eventually kill a 12 point on this place (low fence and all paid for). I’ve been looking at pictures from 8 and 10 years ago, and the racks are considerably better now than they were then. So, I’m apparently heading in the right direction with my approach to letting the best herd bull buck live.


Not my monkeys, not my circus...

Good question, Buzz. There's animals that I'd be interested in taking but, like you, age is starting to be a factor.

1. Nilgai. I actually made a run down to the King four years ago, but didn't pull the trigger.

2. Aoudad. Such a handsome animal and often in some really beautiful country.

3. Desert Mule Deer. I'll make this happen as soon as Mexico gets the drug cartels under control. I'm holding my breath...

4. Cape Buffalo. I want to see Africa one more time before I kick and I figure I've got one more buffalo left in me!
