Just curious if anyone has completed a super slam with a handgun? I searched it and couldn't find anything. I'd be surprised if Mark Hampton hasn't done it, but inquiring minds want to know.

Anyone?

Nobody has or will complete a Super Slam with a handgun because many of the animals comprising the list are only found in Canada. Polar bear, stone sheep, mountain caribou, Quebec-Labrador caribou, woodland caribou, are a few examples. I do not foresee Canada changing regulations allowing handguns in the near or distant future. It would be nice if they did.....

Thanks for the response Mark. I knew we can't legally take handguns into Canada, but I guess I figured that an outfitter might be able to line one up to 'use' while there. Admittedly, I haven't researched handgun laws in Canada, nor do I have any plans of attempting any such 'slam' feat.

So, can I assume you have a 'U.S.' Slam?

Randy, I'm not familiar with a "U.S. Slam" but I've taken most all except those living in Canada. Musk ox can only be hunted in Alaska if you're lucky enough to draw a tag. Otherwise, it's the Canadian artic or Greenland. Coues deer can be taken in AZ - if you draw a tag. A large percentage of Coues deer are taken in Mexico. Mexico is another place that frowns on handguns -- but you might get lucky and obtain a special permit.

We're fortunate to live in a country that allows handgun hunting in many states. Other countries are not so fortunate.

I apologize. My humor didn't translate. By U.S. slam, I meant all animals included in the super slam, but only those accessible in the US. Minus Canada.

Anyway, thanks for the dialogue. I'll leave you alone now.
