When should I book my big game hunt?

Problem: You have finally found the time to plan your big game hunt. It’s the trip you have been dreaming about. Chomping at the bit to go on. You are ready to get out of the office and back into the great outdoors.

But you are too late. The hunt you want to go on is booked out for the next few years. This means it’s going to be a while before this dream can be brought to life.

Why didn’t anyone tell you that you needed to start planning this hunt earlier so you didn’t miss the opening that worked for you?

We have seen this happen too many times. We get the call from potential clients looking for a hunt in the next few months, year, or years only to share the news that everything is booked out.

Solution: To help remedy this situation, you need to start planning your hunt well in advance.

We have been working in the hunting industry for 20+ years. This has allowed us to become fluent in the best time to start planning different hunts and become experts in where the industry is moving.

Below we are sharing our guide on how far in advance you should begin planning to snag your dates for your dream hunt based on our years of experience. While we cannot control sudden influx of demand for certain hunts, this is a good place to start to secure your dates:
