I'm ate up with whitetail and have shot some good ones, shot a booner last year, with that said I don't think big whitetail will ever not be ony top 5 list.

Default Top 5 On the List Animals

If I had to put them in order:

Big horn with a bow.
Mountain goat with a bow
200 mule deer with a bow
170+ whitetail with a bow
350 elk with a bow

There are a few other animals on the list. I could prolly trade out the 350 elk for a moose in Alaska Bc Ive killed two smaller bulls and my wife shot a nice 331 this year. Its close. But these would be the top of the list.

Doing them all solo on public or with my wife with me to enjoy it would absolutely be a dream come true.

At this point in my life, I would say,

1 many big mulies, from all over their range.
2 big bull elk, or 5 maybe 10
3 big old buffalo bull, maybe two or three (American Bison bull)
4 big old black death, maybe a couple of them (big old ugly cape buffalo bull)
5 big moose or five.

Many years ago, I wanted to kill all of the different North American big horn ram variations, but after figuring out I don't like to eat goats and the cost of any big horn hunt, that dream died 25 years ago.

1) Archery P&Y in Lavaca County on our place - have only seen one that would score that high and we have killed two over 125 (Kendra's with bow being largest)
2) 350 bull elk with my bow
3) multiple more bugling bull elk
4) Moose with my bow
5) Hunt Iowa, Kansas, Illinois - Killing is secondary
6) Archery bear - I ****** away 6 years of living in Canada and never took it serious
7) Aoudad - I want to mount one for barndo
8) Archery Axis - I have one, targeting one bigger
9) Texas Mule deer (archery or rifle)
10) Free range Texas elk (archery or rifle)

I do really like elk hunting...it's some kind of special chasing them during the rut.

I can book you a grand slam hunt, if your check book is big enough. Guided, lodging, meals included. Very exciting hunt, suppressors recommend, no licenses required, I will take care of that.

Kinda boring, but all obtainable. I don't have a desire at this point in my life to leave the country to hunt.
