Going to try for all 29?

Maybe all the deer? or all the caribou? or all the sheep?

Have any personal slams/quests you're going for amongst the list...?

Seems like most are possible to get, although there exist a few that would be rather difficult to get/pay to hunt etc... ie polar bear, desert sheep, etc...

I have 17, including all of the caribou and three sheep. No way am I going for all 29. Both age and limited budget due to retirement preclude going for it. (Plus having reached my wife's tolerence limit for taxidermy :s4:)

Would still like to try for the desert bighorn though if lightning strikes and I draw a tag in Nevada.

A caribou and sheep slam wouldn't be half bad!

Just 5 for me. Not sure if any of the "slams" or "supers" really appeal to me.

I would like to shoot a Mountain Goat for sure, maybe a Yukon Moose and maybe a Caribou as well. That would get me to 7 out of the 10 for the "Super 10" or whatever they call it, but right now I don't really have any interest in shooting a cougar out of a tree or a penned up Bison. A sheep would be nice, but I'm not going to pay the $$$ for a auction tag so I'll only have to worry about that if I get super lucky on a draw. Maybe one day I'll spring for a guided Dall sheep hunt I guess, but it will be a ways down the road and I'll probably be too old by then.

A Deer slam just doesn't appeal to me at all. To me a coues deer is just a small whitetail and the two blacktail deer are both just small mule deer. You'd have to have some type of documentation on where you shot them to go with a shoulder mount just to show that they weren't small whitetails or mule deer.

I'd like that super 10 as well.
I really want the sitka blacktail, a self guided hunt on kodiak seems like a great AK adventure at a reasonable price to me, plus up to 3 bucks?
not crazy about the columbian blacktail or coues either though.

I do think once I get an elk, ie rocky mtn, if I go after elk again, why not go after a roosevelt instead of doubling up on a rocky mtn.

I have mule deer, elk, black bear, and cougar. Hopefully next year will be antelope. I am also wanting to get a columbian black tailed deer in the next year or two. Depending on what I draw in Nevada and Wyoming next year, I will probably get a B-Zone tag for California and go after the black tail.

The majors on my bucket list are:

Grizzly bear (interior/mountain)
Desert and Rocky bighorns (Nevada)
Mountain Goat

Mule deer, Whitetail deer, Elk, and Antelope for me. Hoping to add black bear and a Shiras moose one day soon.
