Default Does anyone have a "DREAM ANIMAL" they would love to hunt at least 1x in their life?

When Ibecome a more proficcient bowhunter it is my goal to one day hunt a kudu I think they are the most majestic animals on the face of the earth. for those of you who dont know what a Kudu is here is a pic. Please post pics (unless its obvious what they are ,of your dream animal)

polar bear would be cool, not to many hunters get a chance to kill one. Would make a dandy trophy.

I think they are endangered now which means NOONE hunts them now.

Personally I'd love to go hunting for those flying fish that jump out of the water, i think it would be a blast!

For a "trophy" animal, I'd like to go Elk hunting, I think it would be awesome

My ultimate honestly fellows would be the chance at a big old Elk. We don't have any here in Indiana in the wild and I haven't been able to round up the money to pay for an outfitter but one of these days I hope to do this before retiring to that happy hunting ground.

First I have to get a deer, but I love seeing Elk. I have seen many while hunting and even saw a huge bull Elk in his wallow while I was bowhunting, but he was too far away and the lay of the land made it almost impossible to even find the wallow until we just slid down the hill to it

Ummm might want to check the net, start with polarbearhunting.net, as of 2006 they were still hunting them, And the thread states a dream hunt, not a possable hunt so it wouldnt really matter.

My dream 1x only would be Elk too. Never tasted it but everything you read says they're yummy. And they're just impressive to look at. It's been at the top of the "when I hit the lottery" list for a long time.

New Zealand, Just google "Red Stag" Best hunting for red stag in the world would be New Zealand or Argentina. Ironic because they were introduced to both countries. They get to about 500 lbs and many tines antlers are common.
