If hunting is one of your favorite hobbies, you probably don’t waste any time before planning your next hunt for the following year.
Hunting is an exciting sport, but a successful trip doesn’t just happen on a whim or at a moment’s notice. No, a hunt takes plenty of forethought, planning, and organization. Planning your hunt can seem a bit intimidating, and it can be confusing to know where to start. But we’re here to give you a few pointers (we’re pretty good at planning hunts) for planning your next hunt.

Tips for Planning Your Next Hunt
Plan Your Meals — If there’s one thing for sure is that you’ll work up quite the appetite during your hunt. Between hiking challenging terrain and sitting in extreme elements, you’ll be ready to dig into the grub as soon as you get back to camp. Ideally, you’ll make meals that are not only tasty but meals that can be ready as quickly as possible. Find recipes you can prepare ahead of time so you can ring that dinner bell as soon as you can at the end of your day.
Set Up a Comfortable Camp — Even though there’s no place like home, it’s nice to feel comfortable even on your hunt. Make sure you pack everything you’ll need for an ideal weekend away. Don’t forget your kitchen set up, tents, cots, and other bedding, gear, and everything else in between.
Understand the Rules and Regulations — It’s essential to make sure you thoroughly understand the rules and regulations in the area where you’ve chosen to hunt. Don’t find yourself on the wrong side of the law because of a simple misunderstanding. You are responsible for your actions, so learning the dos and don’ts is crucial.
Have an Idea of How You’ll Pack Out — You’ve done it! You’ve successfully shot your trophy animal! But it’s important to remember the work doesn’t stop there. No, really, it’s just another phase of your hunt just beginning. Make sure you have a plan as to how you’ll pack out. You might need to prepare to do it on foot with a game cart or with some help from a horse or UTV.
Make a Plan B — You’ll spend lots of time planning your hunt. You’ve figured out everything from where you’ll eat and sleep to where you’ll scout and hunt and everything in between. But then, after you show up, you might find that camps are set up everywhere, there’s a lack of game, or something else goes wrong (this happens a lot on public hunting land). While Plan A looks and sounds impressive, having a solid Plan B in place is wise.
