My List of 10; What can I hunt or fish for next?

image credit Pegabovine

OK I have been hunting and fishing for quite some time, and I have been pretty limited to the types of hunting and fishing I have done. There are quite a few different animals and types of hunting and fishing I would like to try out. I have either been limited by time or money. I did knock one off of my list this spring. Turkey hunting oh was it fun, and now I’m going to go every year. I think my brother (check out his blog ArborView ) wants to go with next year. Luke and I will take him to our secret spot, and hopefully he will have more luck then I did. So here is my list in no particular order.

1. I would love to find the time to go bow hunting for deer (or any animal for that matter). I think it would be very challenging and a lot of fun. I guess I just have to save up and buy a bow. Maybe I can convince Wyatt to start bow hunting, and I will have to go then. Right? (I’ll be waiting for a while.)

2. Duck hunting, I’ve never officially been duck hunting, but I have shot a duck or two while out grouse/pheasant hunting ((it was legal I had my stamps). We use to always get our small games licenses and every stamp we could buy just in case). I think this one would be the most achievable for me.

3. Goose hunting, OK I went goose hunting one time, but I didn’t even see a goose. I guess it counts, but I want to get some shooting in (this one should be pretty easy to do again).

4. Deep sea fishing, I think this would be a blast. I don’t even care for what type of fish. (After I catch one or two fish I’m sure my list will grow to different species of fish.) This one might be a challenge living in Minnesota. I have fished off shore in Hawaii, but I was just a kid and I don’t think I caught anything.

5. Antelope, now this seems like a real challenge. Nothing for miles around, but fences and tall grass. How do you even get close enough to shoot these guys? Hopefully some day I’ll find out.

6. Netting suckers with Jesse in northern Minnesota. Jesse one of my good friends who lives north of Virginia was talking to me about netting suckers this spring. Wow did that sound like a ton of fun. I’m hoping to make it up there next season.

7. Hog hunting, for some reason I have always thought this would be a blast. I am thinking this one would be challenging because from what I remember on grandma and grandpa’s farm pigs are very smart.

8. Bear hunting, I think this one would also be a lot of fun. I’m pretty sure Amber wouldn’t let this one fly. I wouldn’t want to put her through all the worries either, because I know she would worry the whole time I was gone that I was going to get attacked.

9. Coyote, I guess this one would work in place of bear hunting, it might not even be close to the same, but it’s still predator hunting.

10. Salmon fishing, it would be great to get a chance to do this. Maybe someday I can go Salmon fishing around the streams that feed into Lake Superior.

I think I could just keep going and going with my list, but I’ll stop now and call this my top ten list of Hunting and Fishing I would like to do. I hope you will be able to hear about some of these hunting and fishing adventures my in future posts.

Is there any type of hunting and fishing you want to do, but just haven’t gotten the chance? Let me know I’d love to hear about it. Maybe we can plan a hunting or fishing trip together.

If I can make a suggestion, I would say do your best to take on bowhunting. You have to get close to the game you are after, and it really tests your overall hunting skills. When you get ridiculously close to deer and other game undected, you get to see their actions and behaviors in a different way. Its an up-close and personal way to hunt, and it is simply an amazing experience.

Personally, I would like to hunt out-of-state. I've gone after pretty much all Iowa has to offer, so getting outside the state lines and hunting different terrain looks to be quite the treat. I actually have some bowhunting tentatively planned during December in West Virginia for Whitetail Deer and Black Bear. It should be a blast!!

Cape buffalo in heavy cover.

Elephant in heavy cover.

Leopard in heavy cover.

Lion in heavy cover.

I think I see a trend here, but I don't have the $$$$ for that kind of thing.

Eastern Montana is a great place to Antelope hunt. We do it every October. Look for our post in late October.

I would love to go squirrel hunting and want to use my .22 rifle with scope. Maybe one day I will get that chance. Have hog hunted at Rex's Christmas Place here in MS (Deer Camp Blog) and had a blast! I would love to harvest a hog...that will be my next challenge! :)

My wishlist.....

Caribou in Northern Canada

Black Bear in MN or Canada

Stag and Tahr in New Zealand

and... bowfishing for flying silver carp. (My husband doesn't see the point of this b/c you really can't eat these fish. I just think it looks like crazy fun!)

Paul, Thanks for the tip. I agree bow hunting would be by far the most challenging.
Have fun in West Virginia I'm very jelous.

Bitmap, I think you could pull it off check out a site call Africa I intervied the owner of the site back a few months ago and he says some of the prices are very resonable.

Albert, Thanks for the advise. I guess I should have been more clear with my location. Virginia Minnesota. I think your advise still applies to the folks up in Northern MN too.

Arbor View, Not a problem!

Merle, I look foward to reading your post.

Marian, Squirrel hunting is a blast, but sometimes can be very frustrating when thoes little tree rats decide to hide for the day. Good luck hog hunting.

HuntsLikeAGirl,Caribou hunting from what I understand that can be pretty hit and miss depending on where the hurds are, still sounds like fun. Black bear in Mn, I have a few friends and reletives who hunt them.The stag one sounds the most difficult to actually do. Finally I agree with you abouthe flying silver carp it does look like a lot of fun.
