    What personal "slams" do you want?

    Do you have any of your own particular hunting goals?
    Do you have any deadlines to accomplish these goals?



    A few of my own I can think of off the top of my head are;

    3 antelope, 1 from each of the trophy hot spots in the US in my eyes, Wyoming, (NV/OR/CA region), and the AZ/NM. 1 down, 2 to go, in my lifetime...

    I'd like to get the 3/4 turkeys in the US. (I had a timeline for this but it went out the window)

    I want the NA10 before I turn 41.

    I'd love to be in that club! I think 350" is very possible for me, after that I could see chasing 400 for the rest of my life... although if I had a 350-375 on the wall passing up a 350 etc...holding out for a 400 would be much easier, til then the first 300 I get a shot at with my bow is going down!

    I saw a guy take a moose/caribou in canada, NWT maybe? forget what kind of caribou, mtn maybe? looked like an awesome combo hunt!

    Not hunting, but a fly fishing slam. It's the 20 club. A 20" Brown, Rainbow, Cutthroat, and Brookie on the same fly. The 20" Brookie would be hard.

    I know one guy who did it on the Frying Pan.

    Never heard of something like that before, but it sounds like a pretty cool goal!

    I would like to have a 130"+ blacktail, a 190"+ muley, a 170"+ whitetail, and a 75"+ pronghorn. All archery would be cool, as I already have the blacktail and bull in those categories with archery, but I'm definitely not opposed to increasing my odds with the rifle.

    Slams?

    Well when I die I want to have taken a ram for every year that I lived. Just a goal, not saying I will probably accomplish it.

    There are about 30 wild goats, I want at least 3 of all of them too.

    As far as deer goes. I want a 500 gram roe buck, a 15 kilo red stag hunted wild in Europe, and as many 40 inch mule deer as God gives me. It would be great to take a huge bull elk every year too, but since I live in Australia now, and I am moving back to Alaska I don't see that happening.

    As far as Africa goes, I have hunted there (the photos are on my forum page), and I'd like to hunt there again.

    And I'd like to take every big game animal in Asia, North America and Europe several times over. I have a long ways to go.

    You could easily catch a 20 inch Eastern Brook trout. Brookies in Eastern Canada get big. I am not saying I caught one that big, but I saw them in a lot of aquiariums and such.

    I agree that big brookies can be caught easily. The trick is to get all 4 species in the same water at the same time with one fly. A big brookie in the Frying Pan is rare. All i've ever caught there are rainbows and browns.

    Wyoming has a cut throat slam. That would be cool. I prefer fish in the frying pan over fish on the wall.
