1.Favorite hunt of all time? I would have to day the most memorable hunt in my life was to New Zealand. On this trip we flew to thesouth island where I saw some of the most beautiful terrain in the world. I was in a hunt to take the majestic Red Stag. Not only did I get a stag with my Mathews bow, but I got the #4 stag SCI. This was beyond my wildest dreams!
