good point - put big foot in that category too I guess!
I do like when one of the big foot hunters says "you're not doing it right!" when another hunter makes the big foot howling noise or whatever.

fox, especially on horseback. That must be terrifying for the poor fox, dogs & horses chasing you down until you are exhausted. I honestly don't understand the appeal of that.

For me now a days my turn off is a hit list deer hunt on managed property. I did it for years owned the land, managed large hunting clubs, spent the money...

Iíve taken to roaming 5 deer/square mile(if that) national forest in north Georgia. Freestyle camping and the wildest land I can get to reasonably.

Only predator I hunt is coyote. I enjoy trying to outsmart them and keep them off my cattle lease.

Well said. Thats the primary reason to hunt for me to get meat! If I can't bring the meat home then what's the point. I would love to kill a mouse or elk, but not if I can't get the meat home at a reasonable cost.

it would be cool to hunt something that our ancestors hunted back during the ice age. And the scenery is great - I don't know how they taste though.

that's kind of a win-win really, especially if it's well managed and doesn't involved endangered species.

Oh I just remembered! When a was a kid I shot & killed a mouse using a rubber band held between my thumb & pointer finger shooting one of my mom's bobby-pins. No grief counselors were involved back in those days.

Shoot you pay me 6 figures a year and I'll hunt Bigfoot from here to the moon and back, whether he exists or not

Africa and any hunt that I can't afford to go on, and that's a long list I'm sure.

Hunting anything over bait is of zero interest to me.

Hunting in other countries is exciting. Many African animals are dangerous such as lions, water buffalo, rino, leopards, hippo, hyena and several others. Sure its a lot more expensive than hunting in your home state, but it is well worth it.

some things in africa I would not hunt, some I would.
Not interested in elephants or zebras and such. antelope sure. Lion, no.

In North America, Ive hunted about everything worth hunting. Some still elude me but I tried.

Certainly not a mountain goat, or even a farm goat for that matter.

I like hunting while camping or camping while hunting. What I really want to try is hunting on horseback through rarely traveled terrain.

My goal for next season available: caribou

Default I'll hunt anything

With an unlimited budget and unlimited time I'd do just about any hunt. I love the experience. If I kill something, great, if I don't that's fine also. Time and cost are the limiting factors for me.

Always been mystified by folks who say "I'd never do so and so" without at least trying it or doing *serious* homework on it. "I'd never do it because I'll never be able to afford it" is a completely different thing to me.

Personally, I'd never want to shoot anything in a pen or something placed there for me to shoot. Other than that, let's go hunt.

High fence? Always said no. But what about 18,000 acre high fence? Tried it and it's sure like wild to me. Fences do two things - keep stuff in and keep stuff out. Sometimes its the later that folks with fences are most worried about, especially the two legged critters.

Baiting? Grew up doing it in FL for deer and hog. Not any different than food plots *to me*. After the first shot those animals become nocturnal - at least the old/smart ones do.

I guess the older I get the more open-minded I become. And the less convinced that I become that I know all the answers. To each his own!

This is the type of outlook that would make all hunters stronger, but it seems jealousy and ignorance are more common these days than wisdom and humility. Or perhaps social media gives the former a microphone so it just seems that way....in any event, thank you for your post.
