Default Best First guided hunt?

Okay, I may get the chance to finally go on my first guided hunt. I've never hunted any big game other than whitetials. I don't want to go for elk, muley or antelope because I'm hoping to move out west and will get to hunt these on my own. So here's my question: I want to hunt something other than deer elk or antelope and this may be my ONLY guided hunt as I think at 40 the chance for wealth and fame has passed me by. What would you choose for a first(and maybe only) guided hunt? I am considering Caribou, Black Bear, or an african plains game hunt. I've always wanted a bear rug. Even an average 'bou would look massive to this whitetail hunter. Africa is cheap right now for plains game. I'd prefer to hunt in Alaska or Canada though as the country is beautiful. Okay, what would you do im my situation?

If I was a horse; they'd have shot me.

Nub,
You must have seen me shoot the stick and string. I'd have to hunt moose to have a target big enough for me to hit with a bow... that is if it was close enough! <img src=icon_smile_wink.gif border=0 align=middle>

If I was a horse; they'd have shot me.

Caribou you can do on your own for cheap! Be it Ak or Canada. Canada is really cheap even on the guided end!

As for what I would recommend, ya ever look into sheep, goats, possibly moose (logistcally speaking more then the diff in cost from a diy to a guided deal, your more apt to do well guided then diy jmho!).

Figure its going to be a once in a life time. Brown/grizzly bears, Mt. Goats, Sheep of any kind, or a 10 day safari in Africa would be neat. Africa would be cool if you can handle hunting behind a fence. Even though the concessions are at times HUGE, it stills irks me wrong. If I did it though I'd be after things like Sable, Kudu, maybe Capebuffalo. Some of the more higher end animals as a regular plains game hunt can be done relativly cheap! (impala, hogs, one big animal to the tune of a kudu, any of the duikar sized critters etc etc).

Just my 2cents, if you are going to pay, go for the gusto while you are capable and willing to do so!
