If you’re a beginner hunter, make sure you’re prepared with all the essentials before heading out on your hunting adventure.

There isn’t much that is more exciting than the anticipation of your very first hunt. It is an exciting moment in your life, and you’ll want to make sure you are as prepared as you possibly can be. Thankfully, we’ve curated a checklist to get every beginner hunter ready for their first hunt.

Find out which essentials all beginners need below:

The Checklist Every Beginner Hunter Needs

Before heading for the highlands, here’s what you’ll need to do:

BEFORE THE HUNT:

Hunter Safety Course — Before you can obtain a hunting license, most states require you to complete a basic hunter education course. These programs help you develop practical hunting techniques and learn essential safety skills.

Get Land Permission — If you want to hunt on private land, you’ll need to get in contact with the landowners and get their permission. Learn more about that here.

Check Area Hunting Regulations — Regardless of where you are hunting, you’ll want to make sure you become familiar with the rules and regulations of that area. You’ll be able to learn important information regarding how much blaze orange you have to wear, which areas are legal or illegal to hunt, and more.

Obtain License, Permits, and Tags — To hunt just about anywhere and any type of animal, you’ll need a valid hunting license, permit, or tag. You can get your Utah license here.

DURING YOUR HUNT:

Bring Necessary Hunting Gear — As you prepare for your hunt, you’ll want to make sure you have all the essential hunting gear you may need. This includes your rifle or bow, ammo, scent control, a trail cam, binoculars, GPS, food and water, game calls, hand and foot warmers, and anything you might need.

Have Necessary Hunting Clothes — Make sure you’re prepared with all the essential clothing items, such as camouflage, boots, rain jacket, gloves, hats, and more. Make sure to dress in layers with a warm, sweat-wicking inner layer and a warm, cozy outer layer.

AFTER YOUR HUNT:

Field Dressing Kit and Essentials — So you can get your harvest down the hill, you’ll need to bring along all of the essential field dressing items, like gloves, knives, tarp, saws, a cooler, and any other tools.

Take Pictures — This is an exciting moment you’ll never forget, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t take a few pictures to help you remember the day. Here are some tips for taking an excellent hunting photo.

The Best Hunting Snacks

Make sure to bring along some tasty hunting snacks so you don’t let the sound of your growling stomach scare off what you’re hunting.

Hunting is full of excitement and adventure, but there can be long periods with little to no action. During this time, you’re likely to get cold, tired, and hungry. But don’t let yourself starve while you wait for your perfect shot. Make sure you are prepared for the long waits with plenty of snacks.

7 of the Best Hunting Snacks

When you bring along your hunting snacks, they need to meet specific criteria: not too messy, loud, or fragrant, easily packable, and satisfying. Here are some of our favorite go-to snacks to fight off hunger during your hunt:

  1. Meat Sticks and Jerky — Is there a more fitting snack than jerky while you’re hunting? There are many types of jerky: venison jerky, beef jerky, turkey jerky, elk jerky. And countless flavors: traditional, spicy, teriyaki, garlic, and more! This snack is packed full of protein and taste and will help you warm up with lots of chewing.
  2. Trail Mix — Next to jerky, there isn’t a snack better suited for hunting than trail mix! While the classic peanuts, M & Ms, and raisins mix is excellent, many other combinations and options exist. Pick up your favorite artisanal blend with milk, white, or dark chocolate chips, cashews, almonds, and a variety of dried berries and other fruits to satisfy your hunger.
  3. Bars of All Kinds — Protein bars, energy bars, granola bars, whatever kind of bar you fancy, bring it along! Bars are an ideal hunting snack because they are compact, calorie-dense, and are perfect for on-the-go eating.
  4. Pop-Tarts — Sometimes convenience isn’t enough, but when convenience is paired with satisfying flavor, it’s a win-win, and Pop-Tarts do not disappoint. Pop-Tarts have you covered whether you are in the mood for a berry-flavored treat or want something a bit more seasonal with pumpkin or brown sugar and cinnamon. Just make sure to unwrap your snack before settling in to minimize the noise you make.
  5. Sunflower Seeds — If you want something that tastes great, is a good source of protein, and gives you something to do to pass the time, then bring sunflower seeds along for your next hunt. They come in all sorts of different flavors, like dill, ranch, or BBQ, and will help keep you busy while you wait for a big buck to come along.
  6. Gummy Anything — We’re thinking fruit snacks, penny candy, gummy worms and bears, and anything else gummy. If you have a sweet tooth, gummy snacks are an excellent treat for hunting. They make very little noise, are super tasty, and you can buy them in bulk!
  7. Fresh Fruit — As long as it’s not too fragrant, fresh fruit can be an excellent hunting snack. Bananas, berries, apple slices, and grapes are all good (and healthy!) options, ideal for your hunt.

Tips for Hunting Late in the Season

While hunting late in the season is not ideal, it certainly is the reality for countless hunters everywhere.

Ideally, you would find and kill your trophy buck on opening weekend, but that isn’t what happens for many hunters. It can feel discouraging to sit out in the snow, rain, and other cold, winter elements just waiting for a skittish deer to make a split-second appearance. It’s important not to get too disheartened — it isn’t time to throw in the camouflage-printed towel yet! If you have a tag to fill, don’t give up!

Below you’ll find a handful of tips that can help you successfully bag your target.

Continue scrolling to learn more.

5 Tips for Those Hunting Late in the Season

  1. Scout Again — If you’re hunting later in the season, the deer you’re trying to land may have been targeted for several weeks and are likely extremely nervous. Deer are intelligent animals and have probably made major adjustments to their regular routines, such as taking different routes, eating in different places, and finding new places to rest. The scouting you did in the early season will no longer be relevant, which means it’s time to try scouting again. Use a trail camera, check it every day, and move it as often as you need to.
  2. Kill Your Scent — If you want to kill a deer, you’ll first need to kill your scent. Like the early season, you’ll want to be odorless, but this late in the game, deer are high alert, and their senses are even keener.
  3. Seek Them Out — Early in the season, you’ll find that deer are running around just about everywhere. But a few months later, much of the game has been harvested. Hunting later in the season ends up being a lot like a game of hide-and-seek, and you’re “it.” Sitting in your blind or tree stand isn’t going to work this late in the game. You’re probably going to need to track them, stalk them, and be ready for a quick shot.
  4. Find Their Food Sources — A deer’s gotta eat, and they are hungry this late in the hunting season! Bigger bucks usually eat later in the afternoons, so find where they are eating and wait. During the day, deer are going to be lying low.
  5. Dress Accordingly — Hunting later in the season usually means hunting in the cold. Will you be able to handle it? Of course! As long as you’re dressed for the cold weather. Make sure to dress in layers, and bring hand and feet warmers with you. If it gets too cold, it’s just fine to call it quits for the moment. Losing a finger or toe to frostbite isn’t worth it! Here are a few more tips for dressing in the cold.

5 Ways To Improve Your Campfire Meals

5 Ways To Improve Your Campfire Meals

 

Aside from hunting and spending time in the great outdoors, the best part about your hunting trip is the food and campfire meals — unless it isn’t!

Hunting isn’t just about harvesting a trophy buck. Well, sure it is, but there’s a lot more about the sport than just that. It’s an experience, and one of our favorite parts about the hunting experience is the food that you get to enjoy during it. Of course, not everyone is a 5-star Michelin chef, but there are a few things you can do to improve your campfire meals and make people think you are one.

Continue reading to learn how you can improve your campfire meals on your hunt.

How to Improve Your Campfire Meals

If the food you eat during your hunt is lacking, implement the following five tips to upgrade your campfire meals:

  1. Seasoning and Spices Are Essential — Whether you pack in your meals or plan to fish, hunt, or forage your food, nobody is interested in eating a bland dish. As you pack for your hunting trip, don’t forget to bring your favorite seasonings and spices to use while you cook. This is especially true when it comes to salt. Salt will enhance and bring out the flavors in your meal.
  2. Pack a Few Lemons — When life gives you lemons, bring them on your hunting trip to use for your campfire meals. Lemons are ideal for hunting trip dinners because they are easy to pack, do not require refrigeration, and add plenty of flavor to your meals, especially if you’re preparing fish.
  3. Build the Best Campfire — Not all campfires are created equally. In fact, the meals you prepare over your campfire are only as good as the fire itself. Building the perfect fire is crucial! In a safe location, start your fire with kindling and tinder, and slowly add kiln-dried firewood after the flame gets going. Kiln-dried firewood is best because its moisture content is less than 15%. The wood you’ll find in the mountains can have close to 100% moisture content, which is no good for fires.
  4. Make a Plan — Before you head to the high country, make sure to make a plan for each of the meals you’ll prepare. Your meals do not need to be elaborate or fancy; some of the best campfire meals are simple. Just make sure you have a plan in place, and you bring everything you’ll need.
  5. Use a Cast Iron Skillet — Okay, we know a cast iron skillet isn’t the easiest thing to pack in and out of camp, but cooking with a cast iron skillet or dutch oven really elevates a meal. Hear us out — they hold heat very well and are easy to care for (you don’t even need to use dish soap!). If bringing a cast iron skillet is out of the question, opt for aluminum foil dinners instead.

Don’t Sweat About Your Campfire Meals — Let R & K Hunting Company Handle It

If you’re ready to focus on harvesting a big buck without having to worry about preparing campfire meals, let R & K Hunting Company handle it! Our team does all the planning and work for you, so you can entirely enjoy your hunting experience in the beautiful mountains of Utah and Wyoming.

Hunting Coyotes: 3 Reasons Every Hunter Should Participate

Hunting Coyotes: 3 Reasons Every Hunter Should Participate


Many hunters pursue whitetail deer, turkeys, or some sort of big game, but every sportsman should participate in hunting coyotes.

As the cooler temperatures settle in and the autumn leaves change, the longing to be outdoors and in the high country becomes a top priority for many. A great way to spend your time in the mountains is to hunt coyotes. Coyotes are predators, and keeping their population at a manageable number is essential.

Continue reading to learn why every hunter should participate in hunting coyotes.

3 Reasons Hunters Should Participate in Hunting Coyotes

  1. Control Fawn and Calf Populations

As previously mentioned, coyotes are predators and can take a serious toll on deer (and other animals, such as cattle, moose, and more) populations if not appropriately managed. One of the best times to hunt coyotes is when they are less aware and more vulnerable. An example of this time is late spring and early summer, when the deer have their fawns. Another is in early fall when younger coyotes are starting to venture out on their own and beginning to fend for themselves.

   2.Earn Some Extra Cash

Managing the coyote population improves the deer and other animal populations. Many states offer incentive programs to help control predators. In Utah, the Division of Wildlife Resources has a predator-control program that awards $50 to participants for each correctly documented coyote that they kill in Utah. If you are interested in finding out more about the program and obtaining any answers to frequently asked questions, visit their website

    3. Improve Your Game

To be a successful hunter, you must always be practicing your game. Hunting coyotes will make you a better hunter and fine-tune your skills. Between the camouflage you wear, your scent, the sounds and movements you make, your ability to scout, and your aim, coyote hunting is a great way to improve your skills. Coyotes are amazingly smart hunters, which means you have to become a part of nature to be the top predator. These creatures have an excellent sense of smell and hearing and have exceptional eyesight. If they pick up on how you smell, see you, or recognize your call as fake, your hunt is over. They know the threat you pose and will adapt to avoid your bullet, making them one of the most intelligent, most difficult animals to hunt. If you can outsmart all of their extraordinary senses, you can vastly improve your game.

Hunting coyotes is a great way to spend time when you’re not on a big hunting trip.

5 Ways You Can Prevent Gun Rust

5 Ways You Can Prevent Gun Rust


If you own a firearm, one of the most important things you can do to keep it in good working condition is to prevent gun rust. 

Rust is your guns’ worst enemy. It can eat away at the metal, literally deteriorating it. This major discoloration makes your firearms look old and unattractive. On top of how your weapon looks, rust can cause several performance and safety complications. The surfaces of your gun that have been roughed up due to rust can create drag, causing pressure and friction. This can mean a number of things, such as a rusty magazine could prevent loading or a rusted barrel could explode. Avoiding gun rust is essential. Thankfully there are a few things you can do to prevent it from occurring.

Continue scrolling to find out more.

Why Should You Prevent Gun Rust?

As mentioned above, preventing gun rust is essential for every firearm owner. Looks and performance aside, the safety issues rust can cause are quite concerning and need to be taken seriously. As a gun owner, your number one priority is safety for you and those around you. Properly taking care of your weapon, including preventing gun rust, could be the difference between life and death.

5 Tips to Prevent Gun Rust 

MANAGE THE TEMPERATURE AND HUMIDITY — Firearms are happiest when stored at 70° Fahrenheit with 50% humidity. It’s best to keep the temperature at which you store your guns at a consistent temperature to avoid the expansion and contraction of your weapon. Sudden temperature changes can create condensation, which may lead to rust.

ADDRESS RUST ASAP — If your firearm shows signs of rust, it is essential to address it right away. Carefully disassemble and clean your gun.

USE WHITE GLOVES FOR HANDLING — When handling your stored guns, wear white gloves to prevent the transfer of oils from your hands to the firearm. Moreover, wearing white gloves will allow your weapon to let you know if it is clean or not. A dirty, oily, or rusty gun will make its mark on your clean white gloves.

CERAKOTE COATING — Protect your guns with Cerakote Coating, a durable ceramic finish that protects metal, plastic, polymers, and wood. You can avoid wear and tear, rust and corrosion, scratches and dents, and more.

AVOID SHORT-TERM STORAGE SOLUTIONS — Gun cases should only be used to help your get your gun from one place to another. Firearms should never be stored for too long in a soft or hard gun case since they can trap and hold moisture around your gun.

Contact R & K Hunting Company

One of the best ways to be safe on your hunt is to make sure you prevent gun rust all year long.

For a safe and adventure-packed hunting adventure, contact the experts at R & K Hunting Company. Our team of professionals will take on the headaches and hassles of planning your hunt, allowing you to enjoy the experience thoroughly.

Rules To Live By When Packing Out After Your Hunt

Rules-to-Live-By-When-Packing-Out-After-Your-Hunt

 

The fun (and work!) does not stop once you land your trophy buck — no, you’ve still got to think about packing out before you finish up the hunt.

The best spots for hunting are typically far from any convenient roads, parking lots, or trails. You are likely deep into the backcountry and are miles and miles away from your truck, trailer, and more. Doing this can make finishing your hunt a bit challenging, but with a few of the rules below, you’ll have no problem packing out this season.

Continue reading to learn more.

Rules for Packing Out After Your Hunt

Choose Your Method — There are many ways that a hunter chooses to pack out post-hunt. Between manpower, a utility vehicle of some sort, or horse or mule, you can find a method that works best for you and your location. Before you head for the mountains on your exciting hunt, make sure to have a good plan in place.

Get in Shape — If you plan to pack out your animal on foot, make sure you take time now to make sure you are in good, physical shape. Hiking to your campground and being able to maneuver the terrain is one thing, but being able to pack out with hundreds of pounds on your back is another. Take time now to start working out and getting fit.

Protect Your Meat — Your number one priority when you pack out should be to protect your meat. Keeping it clean and dry is essential! Always use a tarp or emergency blanket to lay your harvest on before you begin cutting. During warmer weather hunts, bring citric acid packets to protect against flies and bacteria. And for colder hunts, make sure your meat is elevated and separated on a pole to allow ideal airflow.

Use Bags — One of the best ways to protect your meat when you’re packing out s to use game bags — four bags, to be exact. You should also bring 50 feet of parachute cord so you can hang them. You can adequately distribute weight by placing a loin or two, neck meat, and a backstrap with the bag holding the front shoulders. To lighten your load, you may want to consider removing the bones, especially if it’s hot. 

Check Local Regulations — Before you leave a bunch of game parts lying around on the hillside, make sure to check local regulations on what you can leave behind carefully. After your successful hunt, the last thing you want to deal with is getting into trouble with the law.

Packing Out with R & K Hunting Company

While tedious, packing out your harvested big game animal is an exciting part of your hunt. As your season ends and you’ve successfully packed out, it’s time to think about booking your next hunt. Next season, make sure to book an exciting Rocky Mountain hunting adventure in the beautiful mountains of Utah and Wyoming with the professionals at R & K Hunting Company. We take the stress and headaches out of planning and prepping your hunt so you can focus on landing your next harvest. Contact our team of experts today.

Tips For Planning Your Next Hunt

If hunting is one of your favorite hobbies, you probably don’t waste any time before planning your next hunt for the following year.

Hunting is an exciting sport, but a successful trip doesn’t just happen on a whim or at a moment’s notice. No, a hunt takes plenty of forethought, planning, and organization. Planning your hunt can seem a bit intimidating, and it can be confusing to know where to start. But we’re here to give you a few pointers (we’re pretty good at planning hunts) for planning your next hunt.

Are you interested in planning a hunt yourself? Read more below.

Tips for Planning Your Next Hunt

Plan Your Meals — If there’s one thing for sure is that you’ll work up quite the appetite during your hunt. Between hiking challenging terrain and sitting in extreme elements, you’ll be ready to dig into the grub as soon as you get back to camp. Ideally, you’ll make meals that are not only tasty but meals that can be ready as quickly as possible. Find recipes you can prepare ahead of time so you can ring that dinner bell as soon as you can at the end of your day.

Set Up a Comfortable Camp — Even though there’s no place like home, it’s nice to feel comfortable even on your hunt. Make sure you pack everything you’ll need for an ideal weekend away. Don’t forget your kitchen set up, tents, cots, and other bedding, gear, and everything else in between.

Understand the Rules and Regulations — It’s essential to make sure you thoroughly understand the rules and regulations in the area where you’ve chosen to hunt. Don’t find yourself on the wrong side of the law because of a simple misunderstanding. You are responsible for your actions, so learning the dos and don’ts is crucial.

Have an Idea of How You’ll Pack Out — You’ve done it! You’ve successfully shot your trophy animal! But it’s important to remember the work doesn’t stop there. No, really, it’s just another phase of your hunt just beginning. Make sure you have a plan as to how you’ll pack out. You might need to prepare to do it on foot with a game cart or with some help from a horse or UTV.

Make a Plan B — You’ll spend lots of time planning your hunt. You’ve figured out everything from where you’ll eat and sleep to where you’ll scout and hunt and everything in between. But then, after you show up, you might find that camps are set up everywhere, there’s a lack of game, or something else goes wrong (this happens a lot on public hunting land). While Plan A looks and sounds impressive, having a solid Plan B in place is wise.

Forget About Planning Your Next Hunt — Contact R & K Hunting Company

Pros of Hiring a Professional Hunting Guide

Whether you’re an experienced hunter or new to the sport, hiring a professional hunting guide, this season might be one of the best moves you make.

As a hunter, you may have a few things figured out, such as where you like to hunt, who you bring along, what gear you prefer to use, and more. It’s said that you can’t teach an old dog new tricks, and while this may be true for some, it’s important for hunters to evolve their patterns and strategies as time goes by. What once worked a couple of decades ago, or even a few seasons back, may not be your best move. To help you explore other options and methods, you can hire a professional guide to share their insider tips and tricks with you.

If you’re not sold on hiring an expert guide, continue reading to see the advantages they bring to the table.

The Advantages of Hiring a Professional Hunting Guide

Ease of Planning — Hunting requires a lot of prepping and planning that can take away from the entire experience. The planning process can certainly feel stressful and is overall a headache. But when you book with a private hunting firm, you hand over the burden and hassles of it all. Your meals, where you’ll sleep, and everything in between is planned for you. Moreover, you’ll be guided through an exciting hunt.

Trophy Hunt Opportunities — One of the biggest reasons hunters book a hunting trip with a guide is that they are anxious to finally land that trophy animal. Many hunters try for years and even decades to get that giant trophy with no success. But a professional hunting guide can help you achieve your goals and end your trip triumphantly.

Expand Your Knowledge — Humans are creatures of habit, and if you’ve embarked on the same hunt year after year, it may be time to stretch your knowledge of the sport. Unlock your full potential with a private guide. You can work with a guide that will teach you new strategies and tried-and-true techniques that could completely change the way you hunt. The guides are hunters themselves and have plenty of insider tips and tricks to share.

Exclusive Habitats and Land — Because most public hunting lands are overcrowded and over-hunted, it’s no surprise that these hunting experiences are subpar. Instead of hunting these sparse habitats, working with a private hunting firm will grant you access to private hunting land. These areas produce healthy and abundant game, which makes for an exciting, fair hunting chase.

In Need of a Professional Hunting Guide? Contact R & K Hunting Company

If any of this sounds good to you, you’ll want to contact and hire a professional hunting guide at R & K Hunting Company.

7 Pieces of Hunting Gear and Clothes You’re Forgetting to De-Scent

You’ve got a handle on scent control, but there are likely pieces of hunting gear that you’re still forgetting to de-scent.

Controlling your scent on your hunt is one of the most important parts of hunting. Because their eyesight isn’t always keen, many animals heavily rely on their incredible sense of smell to detect things and understand their surroundings — and big game is no different. Most hunters remember to de-scent themselves and most of their clothes, but there are likely several pieces of hunting gear that you may have overlooked. 

Continue reading to learn which items to remove your smelly, offensive human scent from.

7 Pieces of Hunting Gear and Clothes You Might Be Forgetting to De-Scent

Make sure you’re not the smelly kid on your hunt and de-scent the following seven items:

  1. Pack — Your backpack and/or waist pack will surely get handled a lot on your hunt. They will also soak up plenty of sweat. Make sure to pay special attention to the parts that make contact with you as you spray your de-scenting solution, such as the straps and padding on the back.
  2. Hunting Boots — Old or new, your hunting boots are probably stinky to the wildlife you’re stalking. Before heading on your hunt, make sure to give your hunting boots, especially the rubber bottoms and laces, a good spray with a scent-eliminating solution. Your boots come into contact the very most with the woods, so don’t forget your boots!
  3. Gloves — Another part of your body that comes into contact with the woods during your hunt is your hands, so wearing gloves is ideal to not spread your human smell all over creation. But wearing gloves won’t do much if you forget to wash them often and spray them all over before and after putting them on.
  4. Armguard — If you’re hunting with a bow, don’t forget to wash and de-scent your armguard, which often goes overlooked.
  5. Hat and Face Mask — Between sweat, breath, and any other secretions that come from our heads, you’re sure to catch the attention of the wildlife in the area unless you regularly wash your hat, face mask, and other hunting headgear and spray them down.
  6. Gun or Bow Case — If you carry your gun or bow in a case, you’ll need to treat it like you would any other piece of clothing or gear when it comes to scent control.
  7. Firearm or Bow Sling — In addition to your case, if you use a sling to carry your gun, especially those made of fabric, you’ll need to spray it. Fabric slings will soak up every bit of sweat and scent it can! So treat it accordingly.

Bring Your De-Scented Hunting Gear on Your Next Hunt With R & K Hunting Company

Concealing your scent and the smell of your hunting gear is essential to the success of your hunt.
