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.

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.

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.

If you’d like more insider tips and tricks, book your next hunt with the professionals at R & K Hunting Company. Our knowledgeable guides and outfitters have years of experience and can’t wait to share their pro tips with you.

How to Pass the Time During a Slow Hunt

There are plenty of things you can do to pass the time during a slow hunt, so there’s no reason to get bored! Keep reading for some great ideas.

Hunting is a thrilling and adventurous sport, but it’s no secret that things can get somewhat uneventful. Even in the thick of the hunting season, you’re sure to run into a moment or two (or three or four) that is incredibly slow. To combat the slow-moving time and avoid being bored out of your mind, here are a few things you can do during any dull moment.

Continue reading to learn more.

Passing the Time During a Hunt

Hunting is full of excitement and adventure, but the slow time can get a bit boring for many hunters. But if you can find something to do that helps you pass the time while you wait for your perfect shot and spend more time outdoors, you’ll increase your chances of ending your hunt successfully! Here are a few ideas to help kill some time during a slow hunt:

Read a Book — Whether you read while you wait or read to unwind at your campsite, you’ll definitely want a book to read. However, the sound of turning pages is enough to catch the attention of the wildlife, so you may want to consider investing in a Kindle or some other eReader to remain as quiet as possible.

Take Up Photography — A fun way to pass the time is to take photos of all the other wildlife you’re sure to see. You’ll be able to capture beautiful birds, sunsets, and landscape photos until you are ready to pull the trigger.

Play a Game on Your Phone — This may not be for everyone, but this is a great time to play your favorite game on your phone for some. Just make sure you put it on silent or wear headphones so as not to disturb the peace.

Bird Watching — Even during the slowest hunts, you’re sure to see plenty of birds and plenty of them are likely to be birds you know nothing about. Bring a pocket bird guide to help you identify them. Instead of a book, you may just want to download a bird-watching app, so you have less to pack.

Take It In — Between work, family, and other extracurricular activities, many people don’t have much time to themselves. For many hunters, sitting in the mountains and enjoying the silence is enough to pass the time. Sit back, and take in the beautiful views, the natural sounds, and fresh mountain air.

Slow Hunt? Not With R & K Hunting Company

With all of these suggestions, you’ll never be bored during a slow hunt again!

When you hunt with the experts at R & K Hunting Company, there’s never a dull moment. Our knowledgeable and skilled outfitters have decades of experience and will guide you through an exciting Rocky Mountain hunting adventure. You’ll enjoy a pristine wildlife habitat and the abundant game in the majestic mountains of Utah or Wyoming. Contact R & K Hunting Company to book your next hunt today.

5 Things You Need for a Great Campsite

Whether you’re gearing up for hunting season or just getting out to enjoy the mountain air, there are a few things you need to make a great campsite.

There’s nothing like coming back to camp after a long day full of hunting and hiking. You’re tired and hungry, and kicking back and relaxing is just what you need! Sure, no campsite is perfect, and none are quite like home, but a good campsite can really make a difference. Unfortunately, not all campsites are created equally, and there are some things you can do to elevate your experience and make your campsite great.

Read how you can make your campsite even better below.

5 Things Your Need for a Great Campsite

One of the best parts of hunting is enjoying the great outdoors, but let’s be honest. There are always things we can do to make our campsites even better. Here’s how:

  1. Find a Campsite with Enough Space —Often times your campsite ends up being smaller than you actually thought. Make sure you find a campsite large enough to accommodate your fire pit and seating around it, your “kitchen,” and anything else that is a must-have for you and your crew.
  2. Good Food Makes for Good Camping — Cooking at a campsite doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy some good eats! With high-quality ingredients and some preparation, you can eat better on the mountainside than you do at home. Here are a bunch of fantastic camping recipe ideas.
  3. Make What You Can Comfortable — Just because you’re hunting doesn’t mean you can’t be as comfortable as possible. Here are a few ways you can make your campsite as comfortable as possible:
  • Large Enough Tent — There’s no reason to feel cramped in your tent. Make sure to bring a large enough tent that can accommodate you, your tent mates, and everyone’s belongings. 
  • Air Mattress or Cot — If you’re still sleeping on an old, thin sleeping pad, you’re doing it wrong. A good night’s sleep is essential to a successful hunt, so upgrade to an air mattress or cot.
  • Bring What You Want — Sure, it might take extra space, but if there’s something you love at home that makes things more comfortable, like your favorite mug, robe, or book, bring it along!
  1. Elevate Your Kitchen — Aside from the basics, there are some things you can bring along that will elevate your camp kitchen and improve your meals. Bring your good knives, cutting board, and portable table. Consider investing in a portable charcoal grill or quality dutch oven. These small changes can make a big difference.
  2. Pack a Hammock — Yes, you can rest your bones on your cot or camp chair, but wouldn’t it be great to set up a hammock amid fresh smelling pines with a view of the stars and valley below? Do it!

The Importance of Wearing Blaze Orange

What you wear during your hunt plays a considerable role in your comfort and safety, and when it comes to safety, wearing blaze orange is essential.

Along with your other gear, like camo, boots, and backpack, if you plan to hunt this coming season, you’ll need a good amount of hunter orange. This fluorescent orange color is not worn because it looks good — though we like that aspect of it, too — but because it plays an essential role in keeping you safe in the forest and on the mountain. Without it, you could not only be breaking the law, but you could also be putting your life at serious risk.

Learn more about why wearing hunter’s orange is essential below.

Why Do Hunters Wear Blaze Orange?

For folks that don’t hunt, the idea of wearing both camouflage and hunter orange might seem a bit contradictory. In fact, it may seem like an oxymoron to be trying to blend in and stand out at the same time. Well, believe it or not, that’s precisely what hunters are trying to do. Blaze orange is one of the brightest, most obvious colors to humans. Wearing hunter orange is the best way to ensure other hunters see you and don’t accidentally mistake you for game. The more orange you wear, the more visible you will be to those around you. 

Can Deer Detect the Color Orange?

But if humans can easily see orange colors, can’t the deer you’re hunting see it, too? No! Because deer are dichromatic, they are essentially red-green colorblind. To deer, fluorescent orange appears a shade of brown, gray, or green, like the color of your camouflage. Deer have limited visual acuity and lack accurate depth perception, so you do not need to worry about the fine details of your camouflage patterns. Instead, you should focus on breaking up your human silhouette and move slowly. In short, you can wear hunter orange and still blend into your surroundings. 

Deer easily detect movement via hearing and have an excellent sense of smell. If you can see a deer’s eyes, they will surely sense any movements you make. Moreover, if you have any scent on you and the wind blows just right, they’ll be able to smell you from a mile away.

What Are Utah’s Requirements for Wearing Blaze Orange?

Most states require you to wear a certain amount of hunter’s orange during your hunt; Utah is among those states. Utah law states that hunters must wear at least 400 square inches of orange on their back, chest, and head in areas where a centerfire rifle hunt is in progress. Solid hunter orange clothing is preferred, but camouflage orange is permitted.

Wear Blaze Orange on Your Next Hunt with R & K Hunting Company

The best and easiest way to stay safe during your hunt is to wear blaze orange, but for a safe and adventure-packed hunt, contact the pros at R & K Hunting Company. Let our knowledgeable team take on the burden of planning and preparing your hunt, leaving you to enjoy only the good parts. We offer hunters an exciting and unforgettable hunting experience in the beautiful Utah and Wyoming mountains that will bring you back year after year. Contact us to book your next hunt today.

Ways To Use Your Trail Cams Throughout The Off Season

Trail cams are valuable tools for hunters and come in handy during hunting season, but did you ever think to use them during the off-season?

During the hunting season, hunters can’t wait to get their hands on their trail cameras to see what photos they have in store. This helpful and, to many, essential scouting tool helps you get an insider look during important times, such as early season, the rut, and more. Many hunters pack up their cameras and put them away after the season ends, but you could be missing out on some pretty exciting stuff. There’s a lot more that you can get out of your trail cam, even during the off-season. You may want to consider holding off putting your trail camera away.

Continue reading to learn how you can get even more out of your trail camera during the off-season below.

4 Smart Ways You Can Use Trail Cams During the Off-Season

  1. Check out and Scout Other Wild Game — Of course, your trail cam is essential to deer hunting and a staple for most. But, trail cameras can also be useful in scouting other game such as springtime turkeys, bears, predators, and more. When the spring hunt for gobblers approaches, hang one near your blind. Like deer hunting, you can get an idea of the habits and day-to-day practices of the turkeys you plan to hunt.
  2. Shed Hunting Tips — If you place your trail camera in just the right spot, you might be able to get insider tips on when that big buck you’ve been chasing drops his antlers. You could be first on the mountain to shed hunt with this insider information.
  3. Catch Trespassers — One of the most annoying things as a landowner is when people trespass on your land. If you have people making their way onto your hunting property or are worried someone might try to steal your tree stand or blind, place your trail cam in an inconspicuous spot to catch these trespassers in the act. You may want to think about investing in a wireless or cellular trail cam, so you don’t have to mess around with collecting your SD card. These cams will save you time since they instantly send you pictures and videos right to your cell. So, even if the thief makes out with your camera, you’ll at least have a picture of them.
  4. Summer Sneak Peek — While things like home ranges can change before the next season, summer is an ideal time for taking inventory of bucks while they are still in their bachelor groups. A well-placed trail camera right along the edge of a food plot can tell you a lot about the bucks in the area and the routes they take to and from their bedding areas.

Trail cams are a helpful tool that every hunter should utilize regardless of the time of year. Trail cameras are a great way to improve your skill and keep you busy year-round.

What To Do During The Off-Season

It’s the off-season; now what? Just because it’s that time of year doesn’t mean you stop being a hunter!

While it’s technically the off-season, there’s still plenty you can do during this time to keep yourself busy and prepare for the coming hunting season. You may not be able to shoot your gun or your bow, but we like to think the off-season doesn’t exist — the fun (and the work!) doesn’t end when the season does. There doesn’t have to be an “off-season” since there’s always something to do, some way to keep up your skill, and to get ready for future hunts.

Read more below about how you can spend your off-season time.

What to Do During the Off-Season

Scout All Year Long — There’s no sense waiting until late-summer to start scouting. The more time you spend in the sticks, the more you learn and understand the area and the wildlife. There’s a lot to know; whether you’re on site or not, the information is out there, and this information might be valuable to you.

Stay in Shape — Getting in shape for a hunt can be a lot of work, so don’t lose it only to have to get it back six months down the road. Whether you hit the gym a few times a week or head for the hills to take in some of Mother Nature’s beauty and fresh air on a hike, staying active is critical. While you’re at it, take your hunting pup along (if you have one) to keep their senses keen and their body’s agile. 

Perfect Your Shot — Now is not the time to let your aim get rusty. Instead, spend time at your local shooting range or a safe (and legal) place to practice outdoors. Perfecting your shot now will help ensure a more successful season.

Test Your Gear — If you’re like many hunters, you’re probably really into hunting gear. You’ve likely acquired new equipment since your last hunt and have plenty of well-loved gear you use year after year. Don’t wait until the hunting season begins to test out what you’ve got. Take a weekend to pack up your things and test it all out. Not only is this a fun excuse to get away for a few days, but it is very telling of how prepared you are. Do you need to replace anything? Do you need to purchase anything else? Are you as ready as you can be? A weekend away with your gear will give you all the answers you need.

Go Shed Hunting — Shed hunting a great way to spend early spring. You get to enjoy some incredible views and crisp mountain air while you learn about mammal behavior, which might come in handy in your future hunts. Not to mention, you might walk away with a beautiful antler or two.

Here’s Why You Should Add Elk Meat To Your Diet

One of the biggest benefits and reasons sportsmen love to hunt is the delicious, hard-earned elk meat they get to enjoy.

While elk meat may not be as common as beef, bison, or venison, it’s becoming more popular and recognized for its savory flavor, tender texture, sustainability, and clean and heart-healthy benefits. It’s definitely a meat that is worth adding to your diet, or maybe even swapping!

Below you’ll find five reasons why you should incorporate elk meat into your diet.

Reasons Why You Should Add Elk Meat to Your Diet

Here are a handful of the many reasons why you and your family should eat elk meat:

  • LOW FAT, LOW CHOLESTEROL — Animals with tightly active lifestyles and a clean, natural diet will almost always produce leaner meat than what you can buy at the local grocery or butcher. Elk meat has a lot less fat than beef and is richer in Omega 3, CLA, and other necessary good fats. These factors can play a role in weight loss, cardiovascular health, and improved muscle mass.
  • GOOD SOURCE OF PROTEIN — In addition to being low fat, elk meat is high in protein and is a good source of vitamins and minerals our bodies need. You can enjoy more protein and vitamins and minerals like B12, iron, zinc, niacin, phosphorus, thiamine, and riboflavin from an average cut of elk than you could from chicken, lamb, or beef. This nutritious bite helps lower the risk of heart disease, boosts your immune system, and can improve your overall health.
  • ELK MEAT IS SUSTAINABLE — Generally speaking, elk are not farmed the same way cow are farmed. Elk live a free-range lifestyle in open fields and woodlands, don’t require shelter, and eat an all-natural diet consisting of grass, leaves, bark, and herbs. Elk meat is free of steroids, antibiotics, and hormones. Bringing a natural, unadulterated meat indoor diet means supporting a sustainable food system.
  • VERSATILE PREPARATIONS AND COOKING METHODS — Elk meat is available in a variety of cuts and can be prepared in countless ways, whether you enjoy a flank steak, rack of ribs, loin chops, ground meat, sausages, or jerky. You can substitute elk meat for beef in most recipes without trouble; just adjust your heat and cooking time since it’s leaner and cooks faster.
  • GREAT FLAVOR — Of course, none of this would matter if elk didn’t have a great flavor! Thankfully, elk meat tastes as good as it is healthy! Some suggest that it’s better than beef, with its clean, sweet, and pronounced flavor—much less gamey than venison. Thanks to its tender texture, elk meat doesn’t require much marinating, if any at all!

Contact R & K Hunting Company

If you want to add elk meat to your diet, there’s no better way than to harvest the animal yourself with the experts at R & K Hunting Company.
