    I would like to have one of everything that Colorado has to offer. I don't think that includes wolves but I might make an exception!

    I'm so-so on goats. I've had the opportunity to shoot them and didn't pull the trigger. Same with black bear...I had one get in my house and didn't shoot him either.

    If I could take a real trophy of something, it would be a Mule deer.

    I'm going to flip it around and give my list by the species I want most followed by the ones I don't care about.

    NA Big Game wish list:
    1. RM bighorn
    2. Desert bighorn
    3. California bighorn (notice a trend? what can I say, like bighorn sheep)
    4. Dall sheep
    5. Brown bear
    6. Grizzly
    7. Stone/fannin sheep (pipe dream)
    8. RM elk
    9. Mt. Goat
    10. Mule deer (RM and desert subspecies)
    11. Alaska Yukon moose
    12. Shiras moose
    13. Antelope
    14. Roosevelt elk
    15. Columbia blacktail
    16. Coues deer
    The following are incidentals that I would take if hunting something else but I wouldn't plan a trip for these specifically
    17. Sitka blacktails
    18. Canada moose
    19. Black bear
    20. Cougar
    21-25. Any subspecies of caribou
    The following I have no interest in:
    26. Tule elk
    27. Bison
    28. Muskox
    29. Polar bear

    I'm up to 2 so far (whitetails and mule deer) so I should have this list knocked out in a couple more years

    Dont pressure yourself Alabama, you really should spread it out over 4 years
    "Now two flags fly above my land that really sum up how I fee. One is the colors that fly high and proud The red, the white, the blue. The other one's got a rattlesnake With a simple statement made "Don't tread on me" is what it says and I'll take that to my grave. Because this is me. I'm proud to be American and strong in my beliefs. And I've said it before but I'll say it again 'Cause my family's always fought and died to save this land. And a country boy is all I'll ever be."

    I have no desire to hunt grizzly bear, polar bear, or walrus. The cost involved in even a DYI bison hunt(on draw here in BC) is too high for me, it's a true winter hunt in a fairly remote area. I'm also not too interested in hunting the cats around here cougar, lynx, and bobcat. Pretty much everything else I would like to hunt. My absolute dream hunt and one I am starting to save for is a fly-in drop backpacking hunt in northern BC for Stone sheep with a Mountain Caribou tag in my pocket as well.

    I see you're a closet Gator fan by excluding them from the list.

    I think this thread is a subtle leftist manipulation to try to begin to influence us hard core hunters to lose interest in hunting.
    Grand Slam #1005 + 2: Dall (1986 Yukon), Fannin/Stone (1987 Yukon), Bighorn (1988 Colorado Unit S-26), Stone (1995 British Columbia), Desert (2001 Nevada Unit 161), Bighorn (2009 Wyoming Unit 5)

    I have taken Mule Deer, Elk, Moose, Black Bear, Whitetail Deer, Blacktail Deer, Antelope, Javelina, Bison & Feral Hogs. Love to take all the sheep Alaskan Moose and caribou, but at my age the sheep are probably not really going to happen.

    No desire to hunt Grizzley or Brown Bear.

    All of my life I hunted to supplement my families food choices. With that in mind if I was going to spend the rest of my hunting days, it would be for elk & moose.
