You read about hunts gone wrong in these pages every month, and a number of those are purchased at auction at a fundraising event or booked at one of the hunting shows. Complaints have run the gamut from illegally conducted hunts to hunts that simply weren't the right match for the hunter. Many of these bad experiences can be avoided with a little research and forethought. Based on our 30 years' of experience handling complaints from hunters and responses from outfitters and guides, we've come up with 12 tips that every hunter should follow when considering a hunt anywhere in the world, and we've put them in a free four-page pamphlet.
E-mail Extra subscribers already got a copy of Don't Book A Bad Hunt!, but anyone can download it from our web site. You'll find it on the left-hand column of our homepage at www.HuntingReport. com, where we post E-mail Extra bulletins 24 hours after they are distributed directly to E-mail Extra subscribers. While these tips are not exhaustive, they do cover a large percentage of the complaints we see regularly. Following these prescribed steps can help you make the most of the 2011 hunting shows and auction opportunities! Feel free to share the sheet with your hunting friends, and remember, Hunting Report subscribers can always contact us for advice and information.
