Hunt Year Round

Imagine having the ability to hunt any place on the planet at any time of the year? For the average working man, this is little more than a pipe dream; it's simply too expensive to hunt Red Stag in Argentina, Chamois in Austria, Cape Buffalo in Zimbabwe, Marco Polo sheep in Tajikistan, Brown bear in Alaska, and trophy whitetails in Alberta all in one year. Sure, we may be able to afford one or two exotic trips a year, but to hunt anywhere at any time is out of the question for most. You're probably passionate about hunting and dream of one day being in that place. I'm betting your idea of the perfect life may involve the freedom to hunt year round. As extreme as it may sound, this notion isn't so far fetched. As I see it, with a little creativity and the ability to travel anywhere within North America here's how I would lay out the ideal calendar as a 12-month hunter.

When we talk about hunting season, most of us think about turkeys and whitetails, basically because they're the most accessible. Truth is there are loads of other opportunities. Following are a few suggestions.

January
Some states still offer late deer and waterfowl seasons in January, but by this time most of us have filled our tags. In the mid-west where I live, January marks prime time for predator hunting. Mountain lion, bobcat, coyote and wolf are at the top of the list. My own priority would be wolf. As the snow accumulates the wolf hunting heats up. Hunting wolves over bait is most productive during January when deep snow makes predation difficult. Again with significant snowfall, these often elusive predators eagerly search for food. Where regulations allow, wolf baits become active during this mid-winter month. Favorite destinations include Alaska, the Northwest Territories, and Alberta. Alberta's wolf population is, in many management units, out of control.

February
Among the most accessible predators are bobcat and coyote. These are top priorities with many mid-winter sportsmen. All else being equal, February is my favorite month to hunt coyotes. The weather is usually cold and predators readily respond to calls and decoys when the snow gets deep and the mercury drops. If you're mobile, northern coyote hunts in Canada are a great option at this time of the year. Hunting pressure is almost non-existent and the dogs are abundant. With breeding seasons peaking from mid-February to early-March, coyotes especially can be much more visible and easily duped. Nice thing is most of us have coyotes roaming our favorite woods close to home. Although many commercial outfitters offer high-end coyote hunts, in most instances this can be a do-it-yourself deal.

March
March is one of those in-between months. New York State recently opened a management hunt for Canada geese. As I understand it, the idea with this one is to take out a percentage of the adult population before they have a chance to nest and lay eggs. Those I know who participated in this unique hunt said it...
