Re: Best out of state hunt for young hunter
Iím assuming you want to hunt Whitetails and that youíre looking for an outfitted hunt.
If so, IMO you canít beat a southern for a youngster. There is either no minimum age or it is very young. The seasons are long so itís possible to fit a hunt into the school schedule. The fall weather is mild, and even if you go late the weather is relatively comfortable. The pace is relaxed. The stands are large and many can accommodate 2 people, all stands have a 360 degree shooting rest for a steady shot and even the open stands (as opposed to shooting houses) have a skirt surround to help hide the movements of squiggly young kids. If you go for a week you will see and have shooting at deer. The limits are generous so you can hunt all week even if youíre on a lucky streak. On most hunts you have a chance for a ďpoor manís grizzlyĒ (wild hog). And the hunts arenít extremely expensive.
There are many outfits in all of the southern states, and some very good ones. Everybody here knows who my favorite is so I wonít repeat it here. If you are interested, I did an extensive post for another member in the Outfitters forum just a week ago. Itís currently on page two I believe .Iíd also be happy to pm you as well. Iíve also heard good things about Lily Pond in North Carolina, and I just read posts on here in the last day or so with good things to say about Cypress Creek in South Carolina and White Oak Plantation in Alabama.
If instead youíre looking to DIY, burk and hunter-2 made good suggestions above.
