These hunting trips are top notch and won’t make you take out a second mortgage in order to get a booking.

Affordable, quality hunting trips can be few and far between. Here are some hunts that are sure to be worth your time and money.

1. Wyoming for a trophy pronghorn hunt

Wyoming Wilderness Outfitters is an amazing outfitter that can put you and a friend on an amazing three-day, guided pronghorn hunt for only $2,500. The hunt takes place on a 15,000-acre ranch in northeastern Wyoming that is absolutely overrun with trophy class antelope. They only hunt a maximum of 12 antelope on the ranch per year in order to manage the herds properly.

Add the price of tags, meals, and a plane ticket and you are likely to stay short of $5,000.

2. Chase big Georgia whitetail at Oconee Ridge

At Oconee Ridge you will encounter first-class whitetail deer hunting on an exclusive middle Georgia hunting plantation. The property there has been managed for the last four years and this is the first season for commercial whitetail hunting.

A four-day trip will run you $1,500. While some fees like extra lodging, cleaning, and tracking are not included, this is still a fantastic opportunity to chase big Georgia whitetails.

3. Osceola Ranch turkey hunt

Thermal hog hunting in Texas has become a huge pastime over the past few years, and nobody out there does it like the folks at Prone Outfitters. A thermal hog hunt with these guys will run you $650. A couple more hundred bucks for lodging and food will keep you under a grand for one of their hunts, making it one of the cheaper ones on this list.
