My Hunting Dream List

One of the things that comes with being a part of the global hunting community, is a vast knowledge of species around the globe, and therefore a big hunting ‘bucket list’.
(much to my husbands’ wallets’ dismay..) ;)

So, without further ado, here is a simple, yet comprehensive, list of the species I would like to hunt during my lifetime.
More than likely, I will only ever be able to hunt about 10% of this list- but i’ll be more than happy with whatever I am ever able to have the opportunity to take.
The asterisk (*) means it is a priority species for me.

Did you expect it to be this big?? Are there any species you haven’t heard of?
And yes, in case you haven’t noticed, I have zero percent interest in hunting any sheep or goat species.

    1. I’ll be doing posts on some of my most favorite species including pictures of what they look like, and details on their habits and the locations they are found, soon.
      There are game species spanning the globe. If I was interested in sheep or goat hunting, there would be a lot of east European/Middle East/Northern African countries listed. Many people don’t realize how broad the hunting industry spans, bringing millions of dollars to wildlife conservation and small economies each year.
