Re: PAID Hunting trip with father In law. What to expect.

My son-in-law and I became best friends on a very rugged week long Coues Whitetail hunt. He killed his first deer on that hunt. I taught him how to bone it out and he packed it to camp. Since then we have hunted Coues, elk, pheasants and bobwhites together. We shoot trap together when I get up to the Northwest. We have also become fishing buddies and have taken two fly fishing catch and release float trips for trout and 2 salmon trips. I don't have a son so this has been great for me.
Do yourself a favor just go without expectation, quit worrying about anything and enjoy the ride. You have nothing to prove. It will be the best trip of your life.

I've never heard of a place like you're describing that isn't high fenced. What's the name of this place he's taking you to?

I agree. That was the first thing I thought of when you mentioned "Pay for my deer". If that is the case, you can expect to kill a big buck. Remember though, the bigger the buck, the more he pays. You will also probably have a "guide" with you the entire time, telling you exactly what he scores, age, and show you his mother and father's papers. To each his own...

I will have to ask him what it is called.

Yes, it sounds like a 'high fence' type operation, somewhat 'canned'. I would just go with it & enjoy the experience. It just won't be anything like a true 'big woods' hunt.

The weather should be moderate, you could check historical temps, I'd bet upper 60's for a high & maybe near freezing at night. Your gun sounds like more than enough, just put some thought to shot placement.

Re: PAID Hunting trip with father In law. What to expect.

There is a phesant operation near us that does the same thing. It's fenced and the birds are captive. Personally, I think that crap should be legislated out of existence. You pay for the 'hunt and you pay per bird. Sort of a gentlemans (pussy) hunting experience. I hear it's popular with the wannabe hunter crowd.

That isn't hunting at all, thats 'shooting pigs in a barrel' as the old saying goes....

With the amount of deer that wind up as hood ornaments every year, makes good sense to get out in the woods and have a real hunt.

If it was me, I'd go to commune with the FIL and carry an empty rifle or take a camera and record the event.
