Top Ten Dream Hunting Trips

Do you have a top ten dream hunting trips? I know I have been wanting to go for years on a guided hunt. I’ve always wanted to go deer hunting in Alberta for big bucks in the snow. But just have never done it. I thought it would be fun to make a list of my top dream hunting trips.

10.Kentucky- I think Kentucky is quickly rising  up as one of the top deer hunting states to bag a trophy deer.  Todd and Christian counties in western Kentucky have beautiful open fields and heavy dense timbers, with some really nice big bucks. 

9.Nebraska- When I think of Nebraska deer hunting  I think of corn. That’s all I need to know. With the wooded river valleys and farmlands it’s prime habitat for big bucks.

8. Iowa- Corn same as above. Iowa ranks #3 in the nation in Pope and Young Bucks yet hands out the fewest tags. Its firearms season consist of muzzle-loader and shotgun only. Iowa is home of the new world record Lowenstein buck.

7.Kansas-  Ranks #4 in the Pope and Young record book. 6 of the top 10 Pope and Young typical entries belong to Kansas. Kansas is the greatest location to harvest a non-typical Boone and Crockett buck.

6.Illinois- Pike county is #2 in the nation in highest number of Pope and Young and Boone and Crockett  bucks. It’s in extreme west central Illinois. Lying between the Illinois river basins and the Mississippi. The firearms season consist of muzzle-loader and shotgun only.

5.Ohio- Home of the world record Beatty buck. Ohio is awesome for trophy bucks. With plenty of farm land and trophy bucks. During the 2006-07 season Ohio hunters harvested a state record 237,316 deer.

4.Texas-  I’d like to hunt San Miguel Ranch in south Texas. With 30,000 acres of prime brush country. And some really big trophy deer.

3.Georgia- My home state. I’ve had the chance to hunt a lot of places in Georgia. It’s beautiful with some really nice trophies. I’d like to hunt on the Banks farm in Madison, Georgia. Man they take some nice whitetails every year.

2.Canada- Anywhere that has 300 pound whitetail has got to be awesome. I’ve always wanted to go to Alberta and hunt in the snow, for world class whitetails.

1.Montana- I’ve always liked the Milk river in Montana. It just looks so beautiful. With some really big trophies.

  1. Hey, I liked your top 10 list and found it interesting. I wouldn’t have thought of Milk river Montana, but after giving some thought I think I’d put it near the top too. Just so beautiful up there. I would have to rank KY near the top . . . I’m somewhat partial though – I’m from KY and have seen what the last 5 yrs have produced. Over the last 5 yr span, KY has put the 2nd most booners in the book according to NAW.

    For my no.1 spot I’d probably pick a Canadian province . . . but it’s just too stinkin cold up there. . . lol So I guess I personally would pick KS for no. 1.

    Good site, keep up the good work!
