Karaganda Argali


David I would expect these choices from you! Hell you might need a long range rifle for support on the Karaganda Argali there are some unfriendlies in that area!

My hunt is much simpler probably Elk with my SBH .44 mag.
But it is hard to beat a Michigan fall afternoon, with the sun starting to set. The colors on the trees. My 20 ga shotgun, dogs running chasing pheasant. And of course my son Rocco.

Blackbear in Idaho or Colorado. Riding horses, camping in wall tent, with a few good friends. Would use my Ruger Blackhawk Hunter with MagaPort Stalker Conversion. I would take one of my home made primitive Osage Longbows and stone point arrows for back up. Might as well go out doing what I like if things go bad. HAH

That question is similar to one I have "when I retire I'm going to hunt......". My current answer is Red Stag in New Zealand with my freedom arms 454 7.5". More realistic I'd be elk in Colorado.

No question.... a horseback hunt in the Alaskan Yukon for moose. I'd use my FA 475 JRH.

Horseback dry ground Mountain Lion in the desert Southwest with hounds. Staying in a wall tent, with my son and using my Ruger .44 special to dispatch the lion.

I've gone on three hunts like this and still have not connected with a lion. I would hope this fourth time is the charm

My bucket list critter is leopard.
For some reason big cats are appealing and the leopard is a tough customer.
I'd try with my Toklat shooting heavy 45 Colt loads...or whatever my PH said I should be shooting:)

My backup bucket list critter is interior grizzly on a backpack hunt with Lance Kronberger.

RANDY B: AS A VETERAN AFRICAN HANDGUN HUNTER, I WOULD NOT RELY ON A PH's RECOMMENDATION FOR REVOLVER BULLETS. HAVING TAKEN 3 LEOPARDS WITH A REVOLVER I WOULD SAY YOU SHUD USE A GOOD WFN STYLE BULLET (LEHIGH 300, PUNCH 320, AND, AT 1,300FPS OR LESS, A GOOD CAST BULLET), OR A 265gr SWIFT AFRAME, AND, IF YOU CAN PUSH IT FAST ENUFF, THE 250gr BRANES MONOLITHIC HP.
