About 12.5 million Americans will hunt each year, hunting everything from elk to bears to turkeys to fish. A large number of these hunters are inexperienced though, in that they do not have guides with them. They may have their methods, but they could do better with guides that are coordinated, like guided elk hunts, guided mule deer hunts and black bear hunting guides.
On elk guided hunts, for instance, hunters could discover that adult elk will stick together in same sex groups year round until mating season, or the rut. They too could learn that the North American black bear, or ursus americanus, is the continent’s smallest yet most common species of bear and that it is medium in size. They too could learn interesting tidbits about other animals like turkeys, which were domesticated more than 2,000 years ago by indigenous Mesoamericans, and that steelhead trout and salmon are both anadromous, meaning they always go back to the site of where they hatched their young to spawn again.
Hunters can experience so much on these big game hunts, which often are held at elk hunting ranches. During these elk guided hunts, hunters can gain some cool tips and tricks of the trade, bond with other hunters who share their passion, stay in cool lodges, and experience other cool facets of nature that do not necessarily involve hunting. Through these elk guided hunts, so much can be learned, which these hunters can bring back with them for future hunts.
