Hunting During the Recession and Going with the Cheap Route

Posted by admin On October - 3 - 2011

There is a lot of concern out there about not being able to hunt when the recession is calling. This can be a burden for a lot of hunters.

When you need hunting land that provides an effective hunting ground then it is essential to find out where the best land is. Not only that but hunters need gear, gas money to get to the land, and to purchase their tags and permits in order to legally hunt.

This is affecting many hunters. This means the number of hunters is declining, and the number of deer are growing. One of the biggest reasons for this decline is that it is just too hard for a hunter to find a good place to hunt. Hunters only have access to a few different hunting grounds, and this makes it harder than ever to hunt when the grounds are far.

The NRA is bringing more hunting access to hunters than ever before, and they are looking towards federal funding in order to support these open fields throughout the country. This also provides private landowners to make a few extra dollars by allowing hunters to hunt on their land. You have to look into what is available when the time comes, and do the small amount of research to find the best places to hunt.

When it comes to looking for places to hunt on your own, you should look into the State parks, National Wildlife Refuges, Wildlife Management areas, controlled urban hunts, Bureau of Land Management areas, and the state organized landowners hunting areas.

These places can be the best hunting grounds out there when looking to save some money. Some sort of public hunting is available through the 550 total NWR’s, and add to this list the other grounds that can also be hunted on and you have yourself many options to choose from when needing a place to hunt.

Depending on where you want to hunt, you should look into the special herd reduction on hunts through private land holders. This is to help the landowners control the deer population that they have on their land, and this helps both the landowner and the hunter.

This helps when looking for an economical hunt. Normally, residents only are allowed on these hunts, so you might want to find out if it is allowed in the state that you live in. Sometimes the information can be a bit tricky to find, so you might want to dig as deep as you can when the time comes. There are also many state owned land hunts that can be done as well.

This is mostly done on school lands and military bases. A lot of times these types of areas are closed during regular hunting times, but when it is off season, you should still look into it. A lot of times this type of hunting land is not advertised, and you will need to plan ahead, but great for saving some money while on the hunt.

The deer population is continuing to thrive, and more and more cities are putting on controlled hunts for special purposes to get the deer population down. These are low cost, and can be close to home if you’re looking for a more alternative way to hunt.

You can contact the city’s animal control, DNR offices, or through bow hunting organizations to see if there are any of these hunts going on. They will be able to point you in the right direction while also being able to show you lodging if it is a bit out of your area that can be affordable to an economical hunter.
