How to Prepare for the 2020 Fall Big Game Hunting Season

Although there have been a few unexpected changes to our spring hunting season, it doesn’t mean that there won’t be any hunting this year. Here at JACO Outfitters, we are getting excited for the Big Game hunts that are to come in the fall. If you’re eager to get back into hunting, start preparing for the Big Game hunting season! As you begin to plan, keep these essential steps in mind so that you can have a successful hunt this fall.

How to Prepare for Hunting Season

Get Your Hunting License

The first step to a successful hunting season is to get your license well in advance of opening day. In New Mexico, all hunters must have a valid license and permit for the species and hunt type in which they will participate. All hunters, trappers or anglers that are over the age of 18 must possess a habitat management and access validation on public and private lands. All hunters 17 and younger must possess a hunter education or mentor-youth number before hunting.

Remember, if you are planning to hunt on private lands, you must also possess written permission from the landowner!

Check the Regulations in Your Hunting Area

Hunting regulations continue to change. As you prepare for your next hunt, double-check your state’s regulations. Specifically, keep an eye out for season dates and bag limits!

Secure Your Hunting Spot

If you hunt on private land, try to reach out to the landowner to see if anything has changed since last season. Ensure your spot with JACO Outfitters is secured and share your intentions for the season with them, so they can help you achieve your goals! At JACO Outfitters, we make sure that you are ready to hunt by providing you with all the details required for tags. We want to set you up for success, and make sure there are no surprises when you’re ready to hunt!

Test Your Weapon

Your weapon is the key to a successful hunt. Before the start of the hunting season, continue to check your guns to ensure that they’re in excellent condition. You should shoot your equipment regularly and keep an eye out for any damage or loose screws. Also, start stocking up on ammo early to avoid scrambling to search for some during the season!
