What to Look for When Choosing a Hunting Lodge

IMG_2290Whether you are an experienced hunter or are new to the sport, hunting trips can be an exciting way to vacation. While you might be thinking location and type of game is the most important decision, booking a lodge that is right for you can make or break your trip. Here are a few things to consider:

  • Lodge amenities are a significant factor to weigh before booking. Ask about if you will be camping, sharing rooms, or will have private spaces. Also, ask about what they provide in regards to meals and supplies. Some will provide a list of what you should bring!
  • Be sure you ask about what licensing the lodge has, what your guide has, and what licensing you should have for the trip. Not only does this affect pricing, but it can also cause you to run into a few issues before your hunt if you aren’t licensed properly.
  • If you have anyone who is not hunting in your party, make sure there are activities at the lodge or nearby for them. Most lodges have some on-site activities, but see if the surrounding area has any major tourist sites or things to do.

Just by taking time to ask the right questions, you can save yourself and your group frustration. Be sure to read up and even call the lodge you’re interested in before booking.
