    1. Canada - I haven't exactly narrowed it down specifically but i know some people that go up there every year for the fishing. Also would like to take a Canadian Moose.
    2. Alaska - Grizzly Bear. Nuff said.
    3. Grand Canyon - I'm pretty sure my parents took me there when I was young, but I don't remember it.
    4. Hawaii - For the volcano's. Guy at work goes there every year and takes pictures, there is some amazing sights down there.
    5. Germany - Heritage

    This is more in order of how feasible it would be to get there. My number 1 on the list would be Africa for some dangerous game hunting but i doubt i'll ever make it out there.

    You have to get drawn for a moose. And, when you do, tags are $325 before you've spent a cent getting here. Then, once you do, you pay outfitter non-resident fees. Then, you go out, and maybe get a shot at one.

    It's an extremely expensive endeavour.

    Oh, i'm completely aware of the expenses involved in hunting moose above the boarder.

    It's almost as expensive when we go out to Wyoming to hunt Elk. The thing that makes it much cheaper is that we have friends out there that know the public land extremely well and we don't have to pay for any type of guiding service.

    1. Hawaii - it's pretty commercialized now but it's still Heaven.
    2. New Zealand - I want to hunt there.
    3. Brazil - I want to see the festivals where (as Anthony Bordain says) "the smell of ass crack permeates the air".
    4. Germany - I want to drive on the autoban
    5. Alaska - I want to see real wilderness

    Surprised that more haven't added Ireland. Always figured it was a haven. Seems that Scotland and England have better looking women! :)

    we moose hunt just south of Dryden, Ontario in an area just of the highway from dryden to fort francis, Ontario. This year my BIL shot the biggest bull I have ever seen in 22 years of hunting. It won moose of the year, and had a rack over 5 feet wide

    That is a solid moose. Do you know the rack score?

    no idea. Here is a pic of him holding the rack after we cut it off. Keep in mind Colin is 6'3 and weighs 225 for a good sense of scale.

    This definitely puts it into perspective. Please tell me he got that mounted.

    And, that he kept that sweet hat! LOL!

    Those antlers look like they have handles on them. I'd like to ride a moose.

    I'd pay to see that, although it would most likely be short, painful and fatal.

    I would also pay good money to see Kevin ride a moose.

    That kind of entertainment just can't be passed up.

    Look, I can dream about Cayenne's and Land Rovers, but short of getting that moose to hang out with Charlie Sheen, you could never have intercourse with a moose. Just would not happen without you first getting your bones and organs turned to mush. It just ain't happening.

    I once got between a calf and a cow moose at a campsite in the wee early morning hours. Momma went around the corner and baby didn't realize. Baby freaked out and mama came charging around the corner. Luckily no campers were there or it would have been game over.

    I might have a video of it at home. I'll look tonight. I was close enough that I could have punched the calf in the nose. I didn't 1) because that's cruel and I'm a nice guy and 2) I was attempting to have intercourse with the cow.

    Rock, you are a madman. When you stole that cow, and you tried to make it with the cow. I want to party with you, cowboy. If the two of us together, forget it.

    Does this make any one else uncomfortable?
