I Got A Tag, Now What? With Jaden Bales
A lot of new hunters have no idea where to start when it comes to prepping for a hunt. They got a tag, but they have no idea what to do next.
Longtime hunter Jaden Bales has developed a system for hunting prep. He, like me, thinks that you have to be in the hunting mindset year-round. Start your scouting early. Learn the land before the season starts. You can look at weather reports and maps to figure out where the water is, and that’s going to massively affect where the animals are going to be. Your local area game and fish sites are going to be a great source of information, too.
You can also reach out to local experts; just be sure and ask the right questions. You don’t want to be “that guy!” Remember, these guys get asked about the basics all the time, so try and get that stuff figured out on your own first.
Jaden also works with the Wyoming Wildlife Federation to help conservation efforts in his home state. To learn how you can help, go to wyomingwildlife.org.
