Grand Slam

Does anyone know where I can find info or list of the 28 or 29 animals that make up the North American Grand Slam or any other grand slams( i.e. turkey deer sheep whatever)?

Any help appreciated.

Ya know its sad that you feel that way. Because those "uppity dinks" are donating a lot of time, effort, and money, to combat the liberal media and gun control lobbyists. They are one of very few organizations that is fighting to protect your and my right to hunt. So Jeff, keep on calling us names and sitting on your hands while we do the hard work for you. the next time your hunting think of us.

I've heard the number range from 27-31, depending on what is protected and what the author considers a "species". Here is a list, but I personally know their is no species distinction between, say a "desert mule deer" and a "mule deer", or a grizzly and brown bear.

This list contains 29.

If anybody has any others or has corrections to this list, please post. One that should be on here is the Manitoba elk, however I believe it is unhuntable... Ditto for the polar bear.

I think we are still hunting Polar bears that qualify. The fee's involved keep it reserved for a special class of hunters.

Here is a recent article on how the population is doing.
Hunters in Nunavut are celebrating an increase in the polar bear quota for 2005,
Polar bears shot in such hunts, usually by free-spending American hunters, can bring in between $20,000 and $35,000 apiece in terms of economic spinoffs.

Alaska Hunting Safaris offers a rather interesting opportunity for those eager to bring home a polar bear.

Its my understand that you can't import polar bears into the country. they are on the endangered species list and customs will not give a CITES permit to import them. I also understand that polar bears can be hunted in canada but what good would it do to kill one if you can't bring it home?

Nunavunt hunts have gone back in forth over the last decade, I believe they were shut down for awhile. I know they are on CITES too; however I'm guessing that if you can show that it was a government sanctioned hunt (as the Nunavunt hunts are) you may be able to import.

I'm no expert on CITES at all; however wouldn't it also be able illegal to bring a Brown Bear from Alaska (or Canada) into the lower 48, since they are on CITES as well?

I'm certainly no expert either. All I have is anecdotal evidence. I know a fellow who got a sweetheart of a deal to hunt polar bear. Goes up kills a real monster. Now he can't get it home. That was this last year. He hunted in canada obviously and its at a taxidermy shop in canada unable to bring it into the states.
