Default North American Big Game list

I was reading the other day that there has only been 5 people to hunt and kill all the North American large game. Does anyone know where I can get a list of all the large game??
THanks

moose
antelope
mule deer
mountain lion

Add the sheep and goats of which there are many species and su species. In many states the Turkey is considered a big game hunt.Also the Musk Ox and Bison. There are some different species of deer like the Black tail. It depends on how specific they want to get.

Number sounds extremely low. I'd like to know what the list includes also.Doesthe breakdown all the sub-species of elk, deer and moose and other game animals? I'm sure you could add: Caribou, Yak, Blacktail Deer, and maybe Bigfoot?

here is 30north american big game with the different sub species

Big horn sheep: stone, dall, desert, and rocky mountain
Bear:brown, grizzly, black, and polar bear
Caribou: barren ground, Quebec-Labrador, mountain, and woodland
Deer: mule, white-tail, black-tail, and coues
Moose: Alaskan-Yukon, Canada, and Shiras
Elk: Roosevelt, rocky mountain, tule, eastern
Bison
Muskox
Puma or Mountain lion
Pronghorn
Walrus
Rocky Mountain Goat

But it all depends on the oranization you are associting with on how many animals there are for example there is the atlantic and pacific walrus that could add another animal. there is also the merriam and manitoban elk not listed above. The sitka black-tail. so as you can see the number can be rather large depending on how many of the subspecies you are harvesting.
hope this helps

lol I knew it was a number in the upper 20s, not just a couple or 10 or so. Now you can see why so few have done it. If you just hunted (and took!) one species each season it would take nearly 3 decades and conservatively cost a quarter of a million dollars to do it (with a REAL total expenditure of appx $10k per animal. I'm talkin airfare, meals, tips ALL of it, not just the hunts themselves.) But in reality it will cost over $1,000,000.00 when you get into some of the sheep hunts they alone can run into the 6 figure ranges. Try getting a "budget" desert bighorn sheep tag!!!

I can see myself doing a few grandslams in my life like on turkeys, elk, deer etc but the whole thing? Not and stay married and tend too my kids needs!!!
