In the USA it is possible to hunt the following game species: Shira’s moose, grizzly bear, black bear, mountain goat, bighorn sheep, white-tail deer, mule deer, pronghorn antilope, bison, elk, puma, bobcat, lynx, wolf and Sitka deer.
Many hunters use horses as pack animals during the hunts here, especially if you are flying out to the hunting district, which means you will be hunting in an area with no roads. Horses are a good way of getting around the huge areas of wilderness here. However, where there are roads, pickups, 4wd drive vehicles and ATVs will be used. In areas with many rivers and lakes, boats are the main means of transport. Snow scooters may also be used if it is a pure winter hunt. The hunting methods employed will depend on the district, the game species and the season in which you are hunting. While hunting for black bear and wolf may simply involved using baits, normally the hunt will take the form of spot and stalk. Winter hunts for puma, bobcat and lynx involve using dogs. Calling up the huge Shiras-moose during the rut can be very successful. It is possible to bring you own weapons here, but you should apply for a permit to import a weapon into the USA in good time. We are happy to help with this. Many outfitters also offer weapon hire to visiting hunters.
Hunting in the USA often takes place in the late autumn, which can mean very changeable weather; rain, storms, snow and sunshine can all be encountered, so hunters must take great care to ensure they pack the correct equipment. It is important to be well prepared for these hunts and to take into account the time of year, the game species you will hunt, and whether you will be hunting in the mountains, out on the prairie or near the coast. Diana will, of course, advise you on all you will need to know about your tour.
