The possibility of hunting out of state is becoming a reality for more and more folks. When I was younger, I thought I would never be able to do something like that. I remember thinking how it must be such a hassle and way out of my price range. In reality, however, an out of state hunt is totally doable for the blue-collar hunter. Doing the hunt as a backpack-style trip only adds to the level of adventure. That was actually how I pulled off my very first out of state hunt. Since then, the idea of doing it on a regular basis and taking advantage of what the west has to offer doesn’t intimidate me at all. In fact, it is quite the opposite. With a bit of planning, you can do the same thing; and hopefully after this article, you will.
