Samuelson Outfitters does deer and elk hunting trips in Colorado. How do you choose the right guided hunting package for your needs?
Like any trip, there’s some planning involved if it’s to be a good one. Therefore, it’s best to research various outfitters and figure out who hunts what when and where you’d like to go hunting.
Finding the Right Hunting Package
Next, after you’ve narrowed it down to a couple outfitters, do some more research to find out what hunters have said about them. Some get better feedback than others, after all, and there are plenty of online reviews to read. If you happen to live near a particular outfitter, you can ask around and see what other hunters tell you about their experience with specific hunts. Anytime you can bend the ear of a fellow hunter, ask him or her for their advice and tips to help make your future guided hunt successful.
Oftentimes, the hunting package you’ll choose comes down to time and money. In other words, can you get off work to go on the dates the outfitters are going and can you afford the package that offers the amenities you want? Some hunts are expensive and you’re treated like royalty, complete with fancy lodgings, full meals prepared for you, and pretty much everything done for you so that all you have to do is point and shoot! Others involve more work on your behalf, but many hunters like doing the grunt work involved to bag a big one.
Therefore, the package you choose depends on how much effort you want to put into your hunt. Do you want to walk a long hike through the woods or would you prefer to be driven by truck or an ATV to prime spots? Do you like the idea of sleeping out under the stars in a sleeping bag in a tent or do you prefer a modern lodge with a fireplace, clean shower, and Wi-Fi signals? Finally, how long do you want to be out hunting on the land? For some, a day in the woods is fine, while others don’t mind being out there for up to a week far from home.
