Few things in life are equal to the thrill of being out in the wilderness, hunting down your prey, making a clean shot with the help of a good-quality shooting rest, cleaning your catch, and then honoring the animal’s spirit by wasting absolutely nothing. In other words, it’s every hunter’s fantasy come true.

But as the seasons pass, you could get the urge to go out and hunt for something else than the same old buck. As a hunter, you’re eager for something fresh, but you’re not sure where to go for hunting trips.

Now, where are the finest places to go for hunting trips in North America, and what kinds of animals can you expect to encounter? Let’s have a look!


1.  British Columbia

British Columbia has some of the best spots for hunting trips in North America, and it’s easy to see why.

It’s renowned for some of North America’s prime, world-record big game trophies, including moose, mule deer, black bear, cougar, and countless other large game animals. Boone and Crockett and other record books have recognized this notoriety.

Because of the country’s anti-gun sentiment, a tour guide may be necessary. BC allows guided hunts.


2.  Alaska

If you want to enjoy world-class hunting trips without having to leave the United States, Alaska should be at the top of your list.

You’ll find caribou, moose, and muskox if you’re seeking for large game. Hunting brown bears or mountain goats is also an option.

Since Alaska’s large game animals migrate over long distances between their seasonal areas, you’ll have to plan your hunting trips accordingly. Take advantage of the most diverse of the game by visiting between August and October.


3.  Montana

Montana, the nation’s fourth-largest state, has a well-deserved reputation as one of the best places in North America to go hunting and spot wildlife. Most of the state’s major mountain ranges may be found in the west, while the eastern portion is mostly plains area with some isolated mountains.

Black bear, white-tailed deer, mule deer, pronghorn antelope, Shiras moose, Rocky Mountain elk, mountain goats, bighorn sheep, mountain lions, wolves, turkeys, and bison are among the many game animals that can be hunted in the area. During the months of August and November, the best assortment can be encountered.


4.  Georgia State

You can tell that hunting is a huge part of Georgia‘s culture thanks to its combination of private property and 104 Wildlife Management Areas, as well as roughly 630,000 hunters.

Humidity and subtropical climate characterize the state, which is largely marshland and forest. As 1.2 million white-tailed deer roam these areas, your hunting excursion is sure to be successful.

The state also has a good population of black bears, alligators, wild turkeys, feral hogs, doves, and other waterfowl, in addition to white-tailed deer.


5.  Colorado

Colorado is a great area to go elk hunting and just take in the surroundings.

Located at an average altitude of 3,200 feet above sea level, the state itself is both mountainous and rough.  Its eastern side consists of high plains with prairies, woodlands, buttes, and canyons. A portion of the southern Rocky Mountains can be found on its western side.

To see elk in abundance in this state is no surprise, as there are so many habitats available. The state of Colorado isn’t just home to elk, however.  White-tailed deer and mule deer, pronghorn antelope, moose, bighorn sheep, mountain lions, mountain goats, and black bears are just a few of the spectacular animals found in the state.
