Default Where would you go?

I have added one final item to my bucket list. I am planning one final hunt before I'm finally gone. I'm thinking of either Alaska or Africa. I'm not interested in any of the large dangerous stuff. No bear, elephant, buffalo or big cats for me. In Alaska, I would be limited to sheep, goats, caribou, moose, and possibly wolf. In Africa, I could take an almost infinite number of species. Hey, I've got to do something with my money or else my kids would just get it.

I would go to Africa. That is really the only thing on my bucket list. I am 45 years old and have already done more than 5 people my age. But I would still love to hunt in Africa. But I would go after dangerous game...probably big cat.

If I was 45 I would go after the dangerous stuff too. But, at 62 and in not the best of health, I can only quote Clint Eastwood: "A man's got to know his limitations."

I'd like to get back up into our Northern Territory to hunt Camels and Buffalo.
I've already crossed off hunting a Northern pig,wild Donkey,horse,wild dog and now want to drop a decent buff and a camel.

After that a trip to Africa to hunt Plains game but I'd love to nail a Lion and Cape Buffalo as well but money as per usual is the killer.

I think Alaska would be as great as any place on earth.

If you are working on the bucket list and accepting the fact that you are worm food in the making, why not take a few bears with you?


If i find out i am terminally ill and don't have long, those western game wardens better get ready to chase me and to dig bear-sized graves aplenty. Heck, just thinking about it makes me consider taking up smoking again.

Would love to hunt Alaska, have only cruised the coast. It was 24/7 heading turning beauty. A friend of mine has hunted both & gushes about both places. If your list has room for both, why not. If you eaned it you might as well spend it!

I'd go back to Alaska, Africa holds no real interest to me (except maybe to see Mt. Kilimanjaro).
