How to Double Your Efforts in Unfamiliar Territory

Even though we all have hunting buddies, someone that is a good traveling hunting partner is a different breed. Camp chores, competition over good spots, and a willingness to pay their share all can make or break a good hunting partner. This is why some of the best hunters travel alone, but that doesn’t mean it’s necessary to go solo. In fact, a trusted partner can make hunting much easier.

For starters, the scouting portion of any DIY hunt becomes less difficult with a divide-and-conquer strategy. Two or more hunters glassing different fields or scouring distant bedding areas through spotting scopes will learn more than an individual ever could. An extra set of eyes is important, but so is having an extra set of hands to help hang stands and trim shooting lanes. All of the work associated with hunting whitetails correctly can be made easier with a little help.

When it comes to the hunting, setting up in two different spots will provide twice the opportunities to observe deer and get them dialed in. Of course, should an arrow or bullet fly true, then having help is always appreciated. As is having someone to shoulder the financial burden of driving long distances and living off of road food for a hunt. Don’t shy away from hitting the road with a buddy; just make sure they are the right fit for your goals and hunting styles.
