A lot of guys come on the T-man Wilderness Forum and jaw jack about it. But they don't actually move here. A few DO.

It's easy to blame the wife, your job or other obligations, but if you really want to do something, you gotta have some gumption and show some spunk...!

If I tagged a bull like Waggler shot, I'd do a lifesize mount with it. I've had the form for 10 years, just haven't kilt a bull worthy of the work it would be. Congrats on that one Waggler. Congrats to you other fellows, there are a bunch of real trophies in this thread.

Mine is Bear for sure, with Antelope being a close second.

I'm worn out with whitetail, I hunt them anymore because its season and that's what we have.

Yeah, but as you can see in the picture (from about 100 years ago,) Waterrat was a bit younger then!

I've killed Bull elk, two black bears, and numerous whitetails. I still love whitetail hunting the most.

I like hunting all big game in my region but I grew up hunting our main food the caribou. I love that feeling when I have 4-5 neck or head shot September bulls laid out outside my grandparents house, a cup of coffee, and a sharp knife to process the Bulls. I hunt for a very large family so 4-5 bulls doesn't last long. I like hunting caribou in the winter when fresh wolf or wolverine tracks means a change of priorities for the day. I like when all the family are around to help me after a successful hunt but I have killed, skinned, gutted and butchered 9 monster Bulls by myself before.
