Where you going in 2016?

Hard to believe this year is almost gone. It was a busy one for me. I moved into a new home out in the country, completed an unfinished basement, went on my honeymoon, and I also completed the North American Deer Slam. Taking a beautiful 8pt. Columbia blacktail in Oregon.

This year I'm scheduled for my third African safari on the Eastern Cape in April. On the hit list is nyala, zebra, mountainreed buck, gemsbuck, or anything else that I haven't taken on my previous hunts. There is a chance I may back out of this hunt to hunt musk ox in the arctic. An animal that I have always been interested in hunting. Wherever your headed I hope you have an awesome adventure and much success. Happy New Year and good huntin'

Re: Where you going in 2016?

WOW big28hunter, hope you have room in your house for all those mounts. I'm headed to Georgia for a week in the spring to hunt turkey & hogs, Wisconsin to fall turkey hunt with my dog in October, and Texas for a deer hunt. Along with a few fishing charters and hunting locally.

Catch & release is for guys who don't know how to cook

Re: Where you going in 2016?

i'm on board with everything except the zebra. after i watched video of one stick its head in a hunters blind and then be shot as it walked away i decided i could never hunt one. haha.

You want me to put my ear to the ground? Listen for hoof beats? Look for broken twigs?

God willing:

Spring turkey I will be in southern Potter Co.

November will be the Michigan rifle deer season, hopefully with my father with whom I have never hunted.

December last day of rifle will be back again in southern Potter with my son.

Re: Where you going in 2016?

Beautiful buck Big, congrats on the slam.

I have a Newfoundland moose hunt booked for last week of Sept. and my annual deer hunt in SC first week of Dec. Hate to miss Maine and NC this year but the Newfie hunt jambs things up. Been thinking about seeing if Bob Parker has a spot in New Brunswick this spring.

Here was my best buck this year:

Re: Where you going in 2016?

I will be in my backyard. I recently purchased a home with 8.5 acres, not huge but enough!. So in 2016 for the first time in my life I hope to take a deer on my OWN land!
