10 Tips for Planning Your Next DIY Big-Game Hunt

by Tony J. Peterson   |  March 17th, 2015 0

The heavy lifting involved in any DIY big-game hunt seems to come when an animal is down, and taken literally, it does. However the metaphorical heavy lifting starts the moment you say, “Screw it, I’m going.” Once committed to an out-of-state trip, the reality of making it happen hits home.

There are a bevy of different pieces of the puzzle that need to come together to make a trip work. Fortunately, quite a few of them can be handled right now. Or at least you can start on them and hope to finish up once you hit the mountains, the sage flats, or whatever river-bottom you end up sneaking through.

These aspects of the pre-hunt planning are huge and should not be overlooked. There is no better way to not enjoy a hunt then to go ill-prepared. To take advantage of the expensive tag you’re sure to buy and the valuable PTO you’re likely to burn, follow these 10 steps during your pre-hunt planning.
