Planning Your Outfitted Hunt

So you've saved your money and your significant other has granted permission to book a hunt. Perhaps it's a once-in-a-lifetime deal, or maybe you're one of the lucky ones that gets to do it every year. Regardless of your circumstance, a daunting decision remains... choosing an outfitter.

You've heard the horror stories and, unfortunately they seem more prevalent than those ending on a positive note. So how do you choose the right outfitter? Truth is, this can be answered on several different levels and much depends on your definition of success. While outfitters across the globe have established a language of their own relating to success ratios and service, sad but true, only a small percentage are worth their salt!

Many years ago, I thought outfitted trips were only for those who lacked the skill to venture into the outdoors on their own. Since then my thinking has changed; so much so in fact that I now take outfitted trips regularly and have since become a veteran guide/outfitter myself! Today, I am a strong supporter of the outfitting industry, recognizing the pragmatic value of hiring a professional guide/outfitter to gain access to prime areas. Outfitted trips not only simplify preparation, but they can put the hunter in some of the best areas.

If you're anything like me, you take pride in being your own guide. Frankly, I think most of us fancy ourselves pioneers when we go out into the wilds and experience a successful hunting trip. Those who enjoy the out-of-doors recognize one fact - it takes hard work. With our busy schedules, rising fuel costs and the myriad of access issues, outfitted trips present a unique opportunity to put you in prime locations by simply booking the time and paying the price.

Well, like anything, there are pros and cons to outfitted trips. For me personally, I spend roughly 100 days afield each year; it's what I do and, because of that, most of my outings are self-guided. That said, I try to book at least two outfitted trips annually. Contrary to my former way of thinking, for the consummate outdoorsman, they are a must, not because they're a sure thing … because they're not. But rather, guided outings literally open an entirely new world of outdoor adventure that most would never have access to if it were not for the professional operator.

If you've never been on a guided trip, I encourage you to do so. And if pride is the issue, let me also say, pride can be quickly overcome when you latch on to a fine caribou or that trophy whitetail of a lifetime! As for cost - it's all relative. With literally thousands of outfitters across North America, you can spend as little or as much as you'd like.

Your chances of booking with a quality outfitter increase a great deal if you follow a few straightforward tips. Following are a few things I've learned over the years.

What to Hunt - once you take the plunge into the world of outfitted adventures, you may be overwhelmed with the options. Narrowing your goal and fo...
