My father always dreamed of a hunt in New Zealand for Red Stag with my brother and I. I even found the price quote we got from an outiftter at the expo many years ago when sorting through his paperwork after he passed in 2013.

If I could have any hunt, it'd be that one.

Desert Bighorn sheep on the San Rafael Swell. I will never draw it and can't afford it, so it will forever be only a dream.

For me it would be a drop camp Moose hunt in Alaska. It just sounds awesome to be out there in the middle of nowhere for a week or so hunting such a fantastic animal.

With a shotgun I'd want to do a dove hunt in Argentina. I've looked into this and it appears you can almost do the rest of the hunt for as much money as you spend on shotgun shells as the birds are that plentiful. Someday I'm going to do this one!

Part of what I love about hunting is how it provided uninterrupted time with my Dad and Brothers. Any of the hunts I do I want them along. My son is still a bit young but as he grows I hope to include him in these traditions as well.

That's a great picture by the way.

Some day I'd like to shoot one of those Canadian Gray Wolfs in Utah.

I didn't get too into any hunting until I was about 12, and big game hunting until I was about 19. Dad took me when I was younger, but I didn't really appreciate it like I do now. And as I'm getting more into it, he's getting old enough that he can't hunt like he used to.

I think it would be fun to go back and do some serious big game hunting with him when he was younger, and more physically able. I think it would be more enjoyable than the road hunting and short hikes we are able to do now. Not that those hunts are bad, of course. he has all kinds of stories about the glory days of his big game hunting, and I wish I could have been there, knowing what I know now, and appreciating it like I do now.

Looking to the future, I don't think there would be anything better than hunting desert sheep. I'm applying to hunt them in a few states. Drawing is probably the only way I'll ever hunt one. Even if I do have the money to buy a hunt in Mexico or at auction, I wonder if I would... the logical part of my brain tells me I would be insane to pay $50k to hunt for a week.

I found out that this kind of a dream is more reachable than a Alaskan hunt for 2 or 3 animals.

I'd also like to shoot a stag and roe on the British Isles.

Sheep would probably be number one, but that feels so unattainable that I try not to dream about it anymore.

I also wish of taking my Dad and sons on a mule deer hunt together. If wishes were fishes I'd have a school......
Sitka Blacktails? I know where you could get a couple of those real cheap. Airfare, licenses, food...a free place to stay.....
