It would have to be a Rocky Mountain Sheep hunt.  Second choice would be a trophy bull hunt.  This year I'm elk hunting over the counter in my home state of Oregon.  I'll miss next season because of deployments.  But that will give me another point towards a decent tag when I get home.

Guys,

Make sure you enter your dream hunts in the actual dream hunt website.  Weatherby is going to pick a winner after December 31, 2007 and will award that person with their described Dream Hunt.  This is awesome but you have to enter!  Good luck this season.

What a disappointment as a Weatherby owner for 22 years to be denied access to the Weatherby Dream Hunt because I live in Canada. There is no category for Canadian provinces in the mandatory field of "state" on the entry form. Certainly does not make one feel welcome or appreciated as a long time promoter of Weatherby products.
Has this affected anyone else on this web site?
Is there a way around this on the entry form that I have not noticed ?
If we purchase, use and promote Weatherby , why are Weatherby owners outside the U.S. omitted from the contest ?
Not angry .... just frustrated

Lone Pine,

I will most certainly look into this for you.  We do not mean to exclude anyone from participating in the Weatherby dream hunt.  I will get back to you just as soon as I have an answer.  Just give me a little bit of time.  Talk to you soon

I signed up for the dream hunt but I couldn't fill in the my 300 wby Vanguard was my favorite rifle.   None of my WBY rifle choices would allow me to put in the caliber, so I couldn't continue.   So .....I had to put in my second favorite rifle which isn't a Weatherby.... it's a Husqvarna 9.3x62

1st choice


2nd choice

My dream hunt would be to take my father, brother and my best friend whitetail hunting in Alberta,CN. We've talked about it for years, but for one reason or another we could never pull it off. That would be outstanding! ;)

I would love to enter, but every time I make an attempt, I get an error message stating that the script on the page is causing Adobe Flash Player to run slowly.  I then have the option to abort script or continue running it.  Is there a way to correct this?

My dream hunt would be to take my stepson, Lane, with me on a whitetail hunt. Lane has just turned nine years old and is showing a great desire to become a hunter. He has shown great skill as a fisherman, conservationist, and a woods savy exployer. I would like to introduce him to hunting on a trophy whitetail hunt. I would like to see Lane take his first buck with my deceased father's old model 94 Winchester in 30-30. I would then like to give the gun to him as part of the memory of the hunt. I look forward to the day when I will give my most prized possession to one of the most important people I will ever know. I would like to share this with Lane and with you. Thanks, Tony

My dream hunt would involve the man who first took me hunting, my father.  It has been a dream of mine as well as my dad's to hunt moose in our last and greatest frontier, Alaska.  Although I have been very lucky and successful in my hunting career, my father has not experienced the same amount of luck.  He has put in the time and the effort, things just never seem to work out.  I also do not get to spend the amount of time I would like hunting with him due to living several hundred miles apart.  I would be my greatest dream to spend a week to 10 day hunt in Alaska for moose, wolf, and or caribou with my dad.  I would be more pleased to see him get something then me.  Just to experience that father-son bonding on a big trip would mean so much to me, especially now when I can appreciate it and while my father is still in good shape/health (he is about 65 yrs old).  Just to be able to surprise him with something like this and to see the look on his face when he would hopefully shoot something would be somethig I look forward to.  I am not good with words, but I am hope that my story is convicing because I mean every word of it.Thanks for your considerationTim
