Hunting goals

Has anyone ever heard of someone trying to harvest a deer in every state in the nation? My goal doesn't include Hawaii because it doesn't have native deer. How about taking a mule deer in every state where they live?
About two years ago I settled on that goal and have a long way to go, but I'm still young. I'm only 28 but have hunted CA, MT, WY, CO, NE, TX, AL, and SD, plus have tags for NM, ME, CO and CA this year.

Anybody interested in trying to harvest some of the odd subspecies of mule deer? Most of them are in California, but there is the California mule deer, Inyo deer, burro deer and Southern mule deer in addition to the standard Rocky Mountain and desert mule deer.

Hunting goals

My only goal I have and I have it every year. Have fun. I love being up in the woods with family and friends. I cannot wait until my 3 year old is able to go. he already wants to go! The kiling for me is a bonus. But if I had to set a goal as you are asking I would have to say just a safari trip to Africa.

I've never heard of that but if you have the money to get tags from all the states that would be awesome. Right now I'm working on the Colorado Poor Man's Slam (mature males of species; turkey, mule deer, elk, antelope and bear). It's the poor man's because sheep, moose, and mountain goat are too expensive for poor college kids like myself.

All I have left is the antelope.

Right now one of my future goals is the NA sheep slam. I'll have to wait till I make a hefty chunck of hunting money though.
