He joins The Revolution this week with an in-depth, two-part interview, to lay out the details you need to think about when planning for your next hunting trip. Steve tells Jim and Trav that big game hunters need to book their guided hunts anywhere from 18 to 24 months ahead of time in order to secure their spot in a good camp. When it comes to more budget minded hunters, who would rather save some money and try their luck at a DIY public land hunt, Steve still recommends planning your hunt plenty in advance as there is a lot to think about. Take notes as Steve explains how to go about researching the best state for your hunting pursuits, figuring out tag systems, identifying units with the highest densities of animals and more. He’ll also discuss the importance of proper lodging that can withstand the weather conditions of the West and why it’s smart to hunt with a partner or a group. He’ll then dive into selecting the right caliber for the hunt you are on and he’ll also explain why a shooter’s proficiency with the weapon they are hunting with, combined with the ammunition tasked with bringing the animal down, are crucial to the success of any hunt.
