Black bear - That's why I'm heading back to Bear Quest in June. I flirted with a big one all week in 2016, but never got a shot.

After that, I'd say caribou and elk, but I better get myself in shape for those.

Dang Jon, if that doesn't top off and fill up a bucket, then nothing will. Thanks for sharing.

Take a Bighorn Sheep with a recurve or longbow... and for a REALLLLY bucket list hunt, I'm holding out hope jaguar populations rebound and I can hunt them some day. Seriously, they are the coolest cat this side of the Bengal tiger!

My list changes quite a bit, but for as long as I can remember the top hunt on that list has never wavered. A brown bear/ grizz with a longbow. At this point I'll either have to sell a kidney and/ or my first born to make it happen, but it's nice to dream...

I started my bucket list pretty young and have been fortunate to do many of the trips. I am thankful for that. When I check something off I quickly replace it with some new adventure because a man just shouldn't be walking around with an empty bucket.

Guiding other Bowhunters is a special opportunity to watch others fulfill their dreams many times per season. At this point in my hunting career, that is what drives me the most and gives the greatest pleasure.

I got most of mine done, but always wanted to do a DIY Alaskan Moose hunt. But, with the cost of tags and finding another to go with will likely never happen. Will admit that more and more thinking of Musk OX and Water Buffalo

Yah have to be able to afford the bucket before you can fill it. Not anymore.

Since I was a kid, reading my Dad's Outdoor Life and Sports Afield magazines, I wanted to hunt a Black Bear. For me, this was the ultimate goal on my bucket list. After unsuccessful hunts in Manitoba and Idaho I succeeded in taking my only Blackie last year in NW Arkansas, of all places. My bucket is now full and don't have any additional goals. A Whitetail on my own property would also be nice.

My bucket list, Is to live life one day at a time. If a moose or elk ever steps into my Bucket ! I can set back and laugh at it !!

I would never go moose hunting, that's for the guys that really know how to do their stuff. Elk hunting would be okay, if I get the opportunity I would definitely go.

The Animal that has interest me the most, is the elusive Whitetail deer. I've gotten more enjoyment out of hunting deer than any other. Especially on the ground, at their level. But I guess the elk has a Whitetail too !!!

Been working all season on one. To kill a deer with a bow I made myself. Preferably a nice buck. [Wink]
Next would be a DIY elk hunt during rut. Dreamt many times of chasing a big bugling bull. Seems to me it would be like combining my normal deer and turkey hunting all into one. Only bigger!! [Eek!]

Hunts-Moose is number one on the bucket list. Being retired now I have the time, but the fixed income thing makes it a bit tough. I may figure it out and head to Ontario sometime.
Bows-I keep my eyes open for a lefty Widow PSR. I have two PL longbows and like them as well as any bow I've owned so, I figure the PSR would be an easy transition. May pick up a Timberhawk if the righ one pops up for sale.
