The big game hunting list in the United States is growing thanks to great efforts by wildlife management teams and hunters used as the best tool to keep the animal inventories in balance.

Where hunting for elk, bear or alligator didn’t exist ten years ago, now you see states are adding or have added them to their annual hunting harvest. 




Big game animals in the United States include: White-tailed deer, mule deer, moose, elk, caribou, bear, bighorn sheep, pronghorn antelope, mountain goat, alligator, wild turkeys, bison, barasingha, musk oxen, dall sheep and wolf.



Are You Failing To Do This Between Seasons?

• Practice at a shooting range to hone your skill and most importantly to verify your favorite gun is still sighted for accuracy.

Always do the final sighting for accuracy after the gun has cooled off from the round of target shooting.

Next year, you will most likely fire at your trophy big game with a cold gun. That one shot may be all you get before you become the hunted.

• Participate in hunting for varmint game.

Many state regulations allow year round hunting for some varmint game such as feral hogs, coyotes, foxes, feral cats, groundhogs, prairie dogs and nutria.

• Decide now whether you will be hunting public land or private land to start scouting the terrain. What ground cover is downwind or upwind? Where are the best bedding areas? Where are the best feeding areas?

Example: White tail deer usually have a home range that is considerably longer than wider with one end of the home range being wooded and secure for the bedding area and the other end of the range used as a night feeding area that is less secure and more out in the open.

Bucks during the rutting period will be more active during the day. They will be utilizing stream or river beds, gullies, fence rows, and wooded areas along the open fields for day travel to get back to their bedding areas.
