Shlomo, take the Cape.
I have absolutely no experience with exotic game hunting, but I've enjoyed more than a few books on the subject. One thing I always found, in my studies at least, was a deep respect for all things Cape Buffalo. I'm sure there are a few that hold the beast in a lower bracket of respect, but I wouldn't want to be unarmed around one. You've taken an impressive list of game, congrats to you on the many accomplishments. I'm sure you have more than a few good campfire tales for us.
I'm a new guy to the woods, in comparison to you. Other than the true American trophy whitetail, I've really not had the opportunity to take a wide variety of game. But, I enjoy the romance of a simple day afield, or a quiet trout stream. There are more than a few on your list that I would love to just see in the wild, but I'd take a couple on a chilly morning hunt as well.
Thank you for sharing with us a bit of your memory, I'd love to hear some good tales if you have the time.
To answer the original question, yes I hunt.
Mostly small game, but we get out every year for Black Bear, Whitetail, and Turkey. I'm probably going to enter for the Elk drawing, but who knows how that will go. It would be an amazing experience for sure, so I'll try.
Shlomo, I understand your dilemma now.
