Survey: You Pick Your Dream Hunt

Im curious to see what other hunter would pick as a dream hunt.  This is your chance.  If you could pick any hunt, any where with your choice of weapon what would it be.  Lets pretend there is not such a thing as endangered species and everything was eligible.  Lets hear:

Dream hunt

My thoughts on this only recently changed. It used to be that a big moose or elk or huge mule deer was the hunt of my dreams. NO more. There's one and only one hunt that I hope for, dream about and may just cause me to start buying lottery tickets. That would be a hunt for a mature grizzly bear. I've hunted black bears and seen a bunch (not successful as yet, however). But after seeing the pictures from my guide's earlier (1 month earlier) grizzly bear hunts from this spring, that's the one, period. I saw a big grizzly while hunting black bears this spring in Alaska and it just took my breath. I want grizzly (need not be a brown, coastal bear) at less than 100 yds with my BLR/.450. That's what I carried as my rifle of choice for black bear in Alaska (grizzly country) and that's the same rifle I want to take my dream bear(hunt) with. That's it. Poke me with a fork, I'm done after he's on the ground. Seeing that 10' bear and that 9' bear and that 8.5' bear that they took this season, one month earlier, hunting from the same camp...DARN!!

Well, If money was no object,

Well, If money was no object, I would plan a trip to Argentina to hunt both Red Stag, as well as doves and waterfowl.  They say you are not a bird hunter until you go see the flock of hundreds of thousands of doves, all at once.  And, the red stag is just such a beautiful animal, I would not pass up the opportunity to do a combo hunt.

There are also untold numbers of other deer, hogs, buffalos, and goats to be had there.  It is a hunters paradise, o so I am told.

It would have to be for me

It would have to be for me Bighorn sheep, from New Mexico would put the icing on it. Yes

Then there is the North American Buffalo, its not much of a hunt any more, but something Ive all ways wonted one for the history and beauty of them.For this one I need a new gun also. I wont to take the Buffalo with a 45-90 Springfield. It just sounds good to me. Thumbs up

It's a tie I think. Two top

It's a tie I think. Two top hands down, Dall sheep in Alaska and plains game in Africa. At this point in my life I would settle for doing both with a camera, lot lighter than a gun!
