4 New Year Hunting Resolutions You Better Have Started By Now

A new year means a new you and a new hunting season. Try these new year hunting resolutions to improve your hunting season this year.

As 2015 moves forward, most of us will try to improve ourselves in some way. Some resolutions we choose are challenging where they may end in failure.

The following suggestions are perfectly achievable and will help to improve on this year’s hunting experience.

Get physically fit in time for your next big hunt.

Although, many people make a resolution to lose weight every year, this resolution focuses more on becoming physically fit for the demands hunting puts on your body. Being physically fit in time for your next big hunt will leave you with more stamina.

Invest in better hunting equipment.


Having the appropriate hunting gear can make for a better experience. You don’t have to have the most expensive gadgets and gizmos, but you should have the basic necessities for hunting. Make the resolution to invest in better equipment this year. Replace items that are broken or unnecessary with items that actually work and fit your hunting needs.

Research your hunting ground.

Some hunters just show up on opening day and learn the terrain as they go. This year take the time to learn the area you will be hunting. If possible, scout the area prior to your hunt or speak with another hunter who has already hunted in that area. If you are hunting with a guide, have a conversation about what to expect so you will be prepared and ready. Taking the time to research the area you will be hunting will give you the advantage during your hunt.

Try something new.


It is difficult to sometimes change where, how and what we hunt. Try something new this year. Whether it is to put in for a different area or to try a different weapon. Making a change might uncover a new favorite or may bring about a new challenge when it comes to hunting.

Making these basic hunting resolutions may surprise you in having a more enjoyable and successful hunting experience this year.
