Looks good, but it would be nice to see Muskox next to Bison since there is only five slots. Good luck.

What is the criteria?

My list would change quite a bit depending on if it were matching wits with the animal, environment I would be hunting in, pure excitement of a hunt, etc...etc...

Bigbulls,
Criteria -- thats kind of a personal thing. It's a poll, hence pick the ones that mean the most to you and write 'em down.

Someone who is "deer addicted" might say:
The North American Big Five:
-- White tail deer
-- Mule deer
-- Black tail deer
-- Sika (sp)
-- Coues (sp) deer, etc. etc.

Someone who is focused on Dangerous Game might say,
Big Five:
-- Polar Bear
-- Brown Bear
-- Grizzly Bear
-- Black Bear
-- Cougar

No doubt someone in Africa must have thought that the animals making up the Big Five should have been different ---- there was probably room for opinion at one point....

To each his own! Shake and bake!

--------------------------------------------
Have 2 Hunt,
Good Catch on the Cougar -- so who would you bump OUT and of which list?

--------------------------------------------
Think it over and tap out your own list!

Good Luck and Good Hunting,
EKM
