    Stone sheep or Ibex would be the dream hunt, though for one I actually hope to do in this lifetime, I'd go for Rocky Mountain bighorn sheep.

    over 10ft brownie at 10-20 yards with my recurve....might just kill me, but watching those white fletching flying home would be nice.

    As of right now my dreams are what brought me here (along with the Air force). Dall sheep being one, but a 60" moose, a Billy, a 9 1/2' brownie would be great! But for dreaming big I would say red stag in new Zealand, ibex in Spain, or a beautiful bull kudu! Hopefully I'll knock a few of my Alaskan dreams out over the next few weeks! Good luck to the rest of you!

    Would love to kill a Kudu and water buf in Africa w/ my 8mag. But would really love to kill one of those huge Darwini sheep in the Gobi also w/ my 8mag

    Kotton and all you other sheep nuts, you really need to get the book "Wind Dust and Snow" by Anderson. Look at the 6th and 8th ram in the pics. These rams have upwards of 23" bases...!!! They're like a bighorn on steroids....

    And another book "Great Rams" also by Anderson.
    Sheep hunting...... the pain goes away, but the stupidity remains...!!!

    My dream hunt would be a Red Stag in New Zealand. As for rifle, I'm not sure maybe a custom Winchester Model 70 lightened up in 35 whelen.

    10 foot Unimak brownie is my dream hunt.

    A real nice Stone would rank high, along with a prolonged trophy Elk hunt on horseback has always appealed to me.

    Have only hunted with rifle, probably won't change.

    You Sheeper's could always go for an African Aoudad with Ted Nugent in Texas.

    Im pretty simple, I'd be happy with a nice Alaskan Dall.
    We do not go to the green woods and crystal waters to rough it, we go to smooth it. We get it rough enough at home; in towns and cities; in shops, offices, stores, banks anywhere that we may be placed

    Dean I thought you were already too old? Isn't there a cutoff age on sheep hunting? Like if you were alive when the a-bombs were dropped or something?
