Guided hunt for kiddo / wife recommendations.
« on: November 29, 2021, 05:33:15 PM »
So, Im an avid hunter.
The wife likes hunting, but with 2 kiddos its been hard for her to get after it for the last 4 yrs.

My 9 yr old got her first buck this yr, and for the last 3 has been my best hunting partner. Shes been hunting with me and her mom since she was born. Shes a beast. Been part of  numerous successful deer/ elk/ and bear hunts. And literally loves every second. Its all she talks about.

Id like nothing more than to get them both a guided hunt, or access to a landowner tag/ access together.

The issue, man. They all seem to be $5k or more per person nowadays.

Because the little one is so young, shes stuck to Idaho/ NM, and Oregon (I do the mentored hunter program so she can hunt my tags there), and our home state wa.

Id like to not break the bank, so Im reaching out for recommendations, or how some of you all have skinned this cat.

Wed love to do elk, and are looking at the landowner cow tags in NM. But to get them both out, I think a deer hunt is more affordable.

Id like to hear some thoughts/ tips from you all?! !!!

Appreciate it!
WB

Antelope in Wyoming is the answer.

This is another option!

I greatly appreciate all the input. I used to guide, and know theres some sketchy operations, so to have the input from here helps me a lot!
I also know Im not the only guy that has women and kids that love the hunt too, so its nice to hear your ideas on how to help them succeed as well.

Wyoming antelope would be tough to beat for a good success rate to dollar ratio.

Another option would be moose in Alberta. Ive never hunted up there but I know theyve got some big critters and the prices are reasonable due to the exchange rate.

with the 175th covid variant/wave hitting how could you reasonably expect the borders to be open to booking a hunt in Canada ?

Lot better odds than getting to shoot a moose in WA.

For antelope look at Spearhead Ranch. $1500 gets you 3 days of self guided plus lodging and access to a kitchen. Nice digs for DIY. I shot a 70 buck off that ranch in less than 3 hours of hunting.
