RV Vacation Idea:  Hunting Trips

RV Vacations for Hunters

When hunting season arrives, it's time to get out there and enjoy it. The forests and plains are teaming with a wide variety of game just waiting to challenge your skills. Grab your rifle, shotgun or archery equipment, your fellow hunting buddies and hit the road. It’s the perfect time for a hunting trip in an RV motorhome.



Hunting is extremely popular in the United States. The National Shooting Sports Foundation reported that an estimated 21.8 million Americans hunted at least once of the past five years. Hunting can be done with a gun or long bow. You can hunt big game or game birds for recreation or for food.  It’s a sport that has attracted outdoorsmen in quantity. 


Where to go Hunting


You’ll find hundreds of hunting spots in America’s National Parks and in the backcountry in many U.S. states. Hunting is also permitted on 60 percent of U.S. wildlife refuges. Of course, there are regulations in each state, usually varying widely from state to state. These rules and regulations govern the seasons when hunting is permitted, which areas you can enter and the methods of killing certain game animals.


Before you leave on your RV hunting trip, it is wise to study the rules and regulations for the state where you are headed. You should learn about the bag limits, open areas, season dates and hunt types. There are drawing applications and other possible requirements that you should be familiar with for the area. You can usually find all the information you need for the state’s Fish and Wildlife Service.

RV Camping and Hunting


You’ll find a myriad of RV campgrounds right where the best hunting grounds are located. For instance, at Apache RV Park in western New Mexico, you are surrounded by national forests on all sides and can hunt to your heart’s content. Catfish Junction RV Park offers easy access to some of the best hunting on the Snake River in Oregon. When you aren’t out in the woods hunting you can enjoy fine amenities and plenty of friendly service. If you want to find other locales, simply do a web search for “RV campground and hunting” for more ideas. Taking an RV is simply the best way to venture out into the wilds so you can concentrate on your hunting skills and not worry about anything else.
