If you have any interest in hunting out West then you are going to want to take a hard look at joining goHUNT’s INSIDER Program. I say that because it wasn’t around when I began traveling westward and it would have saved me a lot of time and effort. If you’re not familiar with the whole western states draw and points system I’ve got to tell you it can be mind boggling. As a matter of fact for my last trip out West we split up the duties between four of us and it was still a struggle.What INSIDER does for you is all the research that you would otherwise have to do via internet searches through various government agencies in multiple states and make a bunch of phone calls that may or may not be helpful (if you get a response at all) and pour over pages of statistics that even a statistician may not be able to interpret. All of the things I mentioned are imperative to a successful hunt and I encourage you to gather all that info…it’s just goHUNT has already done it for you!
The states they currently cover are Arizona, Colorado, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Utah, and Wyoming with Oregon and Kansas being added this year. Also, just because you live in one of those states and think you have it all figured out, INSIDER will help you find exactly where you want to be come opening day via unit access, interactive maps, and season trends. For those of you traveling they also give you five year trends on temperature, precipitation, and if you believe in moon phases effecting activity they have those too. They also provide various strategies and camping, lodging, and fuel locations to help you along the way.
So in summary, if you’re going to hunt in any of the aforementioned states you should atleast follow the banner on this site and check out the sample profile they give for Arizona and the strategy overview for Colorado. That will give you an idea of what to expect and whether you want to make the jump or not. You will save $149 worth of time and frustration trying to do this stuff on your own. I have also read very favorable reviews of INSIDER through various other chat rooms and blogs I peruse so I feel comfortable recommending it to you based on my own opinion and that of others.
