Alaska vs. Africa?
 
Where would you rather hunt?

ie if it were a once in a lifetime hunt, which would you pick, if it were one or the other?

For me, that's like asking "If you could only have one for the rest or your life, which would it be.....food or water?".

I choose Alaska, simple. I can drive there, means I can take more sh*t and guns with me!

Plus I can bring back my meat........I see no reason to shoot some animal other than to eat it and I ain't stayin in africa long enogh to eat elephant!!!! Plus they don't let ya keep it anyway they give it to the natives!!!!
Now I do realize that there are problem animals that need to be taken out I'm sure they could find someone local to do that...............................

Alaske for me.

Have hunted both (Africa twice); and both were great in their own unique ways. When it comes to costs, however, Africa gives you much more bang for the buck even after factoring in airfare.

Easy choice for me. I love the cold, and hate the heat.

Guess Africa for me, Alaska is the back yard. Just need to stay healthy and have time.

As a American; I always say, see/hunt your our country before you go over seas !


America's last frontier !!!

I hate hunting in warm/hot weather. Has to be Alaska. I love the mountains and cold weather.

ya im sure africa would be a ball, but its cheatin might as well shoot a 400 class bull through an 8 foot fence and sitting in a hot blind wondering if i should ta the monkey or one of the many antelope..... plus you get to taste your animal once the night you kill it. for me Alaska is the place............ nice fresh mountain air, on a cold morning. it don't get better than that well maybe a bear and moose on the ground, just sayin

I can't think of anything that Africa has to offer me that would make me even consider it. Alaska with Africa not even being in the top ten.

I have lived in Alaska, beautiful state. Comparing one to the other is apples and oranges! I have wanted to go to Africa all my life. These days my arm of choice would be a camera.

Africa!

I would love to get over there someday. Dangerous Five would be quite the adrenaline rush!
