    Animals in NA that you don't want to hunt, or in no rush to hunt...?

    I was just wondering after looking at the NA29 animals...

    If anyone else out there would never hunt a certain animal, or has little/no interest in certain animals?

    Or which ones are on your "back burner" ie, You want to take an elk before you consider a coues deer hunt etc...



    Honestly I think I would love to take all of the NA29, but at least 5 of those I think require some $$ to be able to, and who knows what the future/populations hold as well.

    My answer...
    I'm not thrilled about shooting a cougar out of a tree, but I really want to take a cougar. But keep up with dogs in the mtns etc... I'm sure would make for an exciting/tough hunt, so it's a bit more than simply shooting a cat from a tree.

    Coues deer are low on my list at the moment, it seems like a small whitetail to me, and we have big whitetails here in IL.

    Good question. I really have no desire to hunt black bear. Never have. I've been invited several times for free as I have a friend who hunts them with hounds, and he always asks me to go. He kills some big bear too.

    I'll add that my #1 would be a moose with archery equipment. Followed by Elk then Caribou. None of which I have hunted yet. I also think that Cougar would be a fun hunt.

    Try hunting Black Bear before you are so quick to dismiss them. Indians considered them one of the most wily animals in the forest.

    Some may be more of a priority then others but I want to hunt them all too! Only animals I can think of I really have no desire to hunt are zebras, elephants, and rhinos. lol

    Coues deer and sitka blacktail are the lowest two on my list. I live in an area that its not too hard to take whitetail, elk, mule deer, and pronghorn and I have taken good mature specimens of each. My short list which will take a while to get the tags is sheep loaded and moose centered. I dont have so much interest in the NA 29, but really want to get a North american sheep slam completed before I die.

    I must be different than everyone else.. But, I have zero desire to hunt: Bison, Mt. Lion, Musk Ox, any of the Caribou, Black Bear, Polar Bear, Sitka blacktail, Columbia blacktail and Coues deer. And, I only have limited desire to hunt: Grizzly Bear, Kodiak Bear, Mt Goat or Tule elk.

    If, at the end of my life, I've had the opportunity to hunt whitetails, mulies, RM elk, rosie elk, antelope, a moose, and a sheep.... I'll be a pretty happy camper.
    My mind is a raging torrent, flooded with rivulets of thought cascading into a waterfall of creative alternatives.

    After thinking about it I guess my answer is, I want to hunt them all. I just love to hunt! I think Deer hunting is and may always be my favorite though!
