Types of Big Game You Hunt?

Postby Greg Wile » Sun May 15, 2005 1:48 pm

What types of Big Game do you folks hunt? I personally hunt White Tailed Deer and Black Bears, and have unsuccessfully put in for the moose draw here in N.S. several times. :thumbsup:

Up here I hunt mostly Moose, but I also hunt Black Bear (Im getting ready to go on a Black Bear hunt in 2 weeks :thumbsup: ). I am hoping to go Caribou hunting in the fall (also).

Good Luck to Y'all!

Unfortunately the only big game that we have is whitetails. I hope to someday make it somewhere to hunt something else. It is just so damn expensive. A caribou hunt would probably be my first choice b/c of the high success rate.
If the hunting is cold, luckily so is the beer!

All we have around here to hunt are white tails. I'd like to go elk hunting someday though.

Missouri White Tails! Gotta love 'em! I've hunted (some) with my moms family in New Mexico for Mulies. That's the extent of my "big game" animals. Would LOVE to go up north for Elk, Moose etc...

in our state we have the opportunity to hunt:

BlackTail deer (wester OR)
Mule Deer (eatern OR)
Elk
Black Bear (spring and fall)
Pronghorn
Big Horn Sheep (once in a lifetime tag...no preference points)

unfortunately for me..i am still relatively new to the state and am still aquiring enough pref. pts. to be able to draw a good unit to hunt in.

so, for now i take my chances (as poor as they are) hunting the general blacktail rifle season and the general western elk season.

Here in Pennsy it's whitetails. We've got plenty of black bears, too, but the season for bears runs on M,T,W before Thanksgiving - no Saturday! Them's workin' days for this poor ole boy. We have an elk season starting here. It's by lottery - but, again, it's on work days.

I was blessed to be raised in a family that loved to hunt . Even my grandma was packing a bow and hanging with the guys. Prior to getting married I was hunting Mt. lions every winter, bears in the spring and mulies in the fall, and occasional elk.

Presently I am working on my "dream list". The budget is the biggest hold up. I've been able to take a bear, carribou, and an antelope, and a mulie off my list.

For all of you that have posted wishing for a carribou hunt. Start saving its well worth it. We had five guys on a self guided hunt and got five very respectable bulls. A very fun hunt. On a self guided hunt the biggest expense is the airfare. I still have the info if anyone is interested.

wa.duckhunter where did you go for your caribou hunt ? Labrador, Quebec, Northwest Territories, or Alaska. And what type of caribou did you hunt? Post some pictures if you have any, please.

Big Game? I have hunted Mule deer, white tailed deer, antalope, been trying to get a elk tag too. For some reason turkey is considered a big game here too, and I hunt those also.
