Getting a trophy is never a guarantee but there are things you can do to give yourself the best chance and to get the most out of your hunt!
Hunting can be quite a physical activity! If you don't have your cardio fitness and strength up to par you may find yourself struggling in the field. We recommend focusing your pre-hunt exercise regiment on exercises that train the lungs and legs. We will make sure to guide you to your physical ability but the better shape you are in the more options we will have. Physically demanding terrain will often hold the best trophy animals. You will have the best hunt if you come physically prepared.
Boots and Footwear
Pick your boots or footwear carefully! You will rely on them throughout your hunt to keep you comfortable and dry. We recommend boots that are weather resistant, provide ankle support, are comfortable, and light weight. Also we suggest making sure your boots have been broken in. You don't want to discover your new boots cause you blisters while on the hunt! Wear your boots for a couple weeks prior to your hunt to ensure they will have a comfortable fit in the field.
Other Things to Pack
In addition to good hunting boots remember to bring your hunting license and conservation stamp, rain gear, clothing that can be layered for your comfort, a weather proof backpack, water bottle, hand lamp, sunscreen, Chapstick, hat and gloves.
To get the most out of your hunt we suggest you spend some time practicing at the gun or archery range especially if you are using a new weapon. Don't lose your big trophy fumbling around with your weapon! Spend some time with your rifle or bow until you know how to work it under stressful conditions and how practiced firing it at different ranges.
We are here to support you! We will do our best to ensure you have a successful hunt regardless of what condition you arrive in but you will likely have the best possible time and most success if you do a little prep work on your own prior to your hunt. We hope these tips help get your ready!
