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.
I love it!! Now for CT. You can book a trip to S. Africa and hunt plains game, 5 species total for 1250.00 these days. That includes lodging, a guide, and meals. 1 of each species. 7 nights, 5 days of hunting. You can bring 2 rifles.
Flight is about 2000.00 per person, 3500.00 for 2.

Moose are just big lawn ornaments and wolves can be hunted anytime no permits. I kill an elk for meat just below the house. Tarzan was always attacking hunters in Africa that would be a PIA.

It's not so much as where I would go but what would I do . I would do a grand slam turkey hunt and then take a big game hunt in North America.

Africa...but all over, the plains, mountains, etc. Not to hunt, I've no desire to shoot anything I'm not going to eat. Not a trophy specific hunter. But the chance to spend some time on that continent would be awesome.

I am not terminally ill, just getting old. I guess I am terminal but not ill. Maybe ill tempered but not ill. Anyway, I just have no desire to shoot a bear. I guess I have enough gun. My 8x57 or my 9.3x57 would do it. I just have more desire to hunt deer and antelope kinds of game.

I think you should spend some time around some bears and see if you can build up a strong desire to hunt them. Maybe wear some meaty cologne?

I was on a cow elk hunt Saturday here in Utah. Saw no cows but managed to find some bulls. Had 3 monstrous 6 or 7 point bulls trot by at about 50 yards. I'm talking 360-390 bulls. There really is no more majestic animal out here in the west then rocky mt elk.
