I had a list of: Elk, Deer, Caribou, Grizzly, Moose, Mt. Lion - have full filled all of them.

Now the only remaining is an African hunt and I have that booked for Aug 2018. Feels good to always have something to look forward to.

I want to take a bear with my longbow, in the great North Woods of Maine. I tried this season but was not successful. I have already signed up for another attempt for the 2018 system. At age 71 I've pretty much filled my bucket list.

Maine moose, although my decrepitude demands that I do it with a muzzleloader, can't pull a heavy enough bow for it.

Great Story John,

Yes I agree, good to see you post casey.

As said earlier "my bucket has a hole in it". I love hunting and take opportunities as they come. nothing specific for me and my desires constantly change.

Good Luck Susan. I hope you have already started applying for tags. lol

Relax,

My bucket list is very simple... Would like to take a deer, from the ground, stalking... Been at this "eye level" game for quite some time and had many close encounters, but no filled tags...

Some people say that I don't want to "kill" a deer... If I did I'd use a tree stand or store bought blind... I say (they) are right! I Want To "Hunt" A Deer! Simple..... [dunno]

Thanks for asking Ron...

Hereditary foot problems take chasing elk off my list, finances take moose various and brown bears off. No desire for blackies. I've taken a mature white tail from the ground a 8 yards. Staying healthy, and doing what I can each day is my goal. Passing away with my (hunting) boots on would be great.

Once upon a time, I had visions of hunting Grizzly/Brown Bear with a bow, but too old now. Same for sheep and goats, though never had as much of a desire to hunt them.

I hunt elk a lot, and get to hunt Black Bear in my own state about every six years (takes that long to draw a permit), and I've hunted Alaska twice, taking a nice bull moose the second time.

Still would like to make it back to Alaska for a Caribou hunt.

I have hunts I'd like to do and places I'd like to hunt in, but I don't have a bucket list anymore. Heck, for the last several years I've been super fortunate to work with BCY and live a string maker's dream! I've been so fortunate I don't feel like I've missed out on anything at all.

My biggest desire is NOT to kick the bucket! I am just now beginning to have a number of those issues generally associated with getting older, and I am not aging gracefully. Shooting the bow is currently uncomfortable to the point that I couldn't bowhunt this year. I am doing some therapy to regain the ability to pull my bow, so I guess the ability to bowhunt at all goes to the top of my list. Once the ability to shoot is restored, taking a sizeable hog is a priority.

I hear you Sam, getting older has slowed me some but I still try to get out as much as I can. Who ever said these would be the golden years was full of it.........lol. I just wish I could see more deer.

My list changes every year. But at present it is: Canadian moose (going in 2018); mule deer; RM Elk; and mountain lion.

I'm in my late 50s and in good shape but I doubt I'll complete my list . . . but I aim to live forever or die trying. . .
