Lodg­ing Op­tions

Modern Pioneer - - Whitetails -

If you’ve read this ar­ti­cle, then I’m sure you’re in­ter­ested in plan­ning a fu­ture DIY white­tail ad­ven­ture in the West. Lo­gis­ti­cally, it’s an easy hunt to plan as com­pared to elk or mule deer. How­ever, there are sev­eral ways to lodge dur­ing your hunt de­pend­ing upon your bud­get.

TENT CAMP­ING: If you want to pinch pen­nies, go­ing the tent route makes the most sense. Aside from prairie winds, tent camp­ing is sim­ple. If you plan cook­ing meth­ods and have ac­cess to wa­ter, the only thing you’ll sac­ri­fice while tent camp­ing is a comfy mat­tress.

CAM­PER: De­pend­ing on your style, you can either dry-camp (with­out hookups) or stay in an RV park. Either way, if you own a cam­per, this route can en­sure a more solid roof over your head, and the abil­ity to cook on a stove and keep things cool in a re­frig­er­a­tor.

MO­TEL: Per­haps the most pop­u­lar lodg­ing op­tion is the mo­tel. Lit­tle west­ern towns al­ways seem to have at least one fam­ily-owned op­er­a­tion that of­fers safe and se­cure lodg­ing. The plus with these is that you’re spend­ing money with lo­cal folks, and in re­turn, they might will­ingly share some places to hunt or at least to be­gin scout­ing, which is a real ben­e­fit when hunt­ing un­fa­mil­iar ground.
