Prepare well before the hunt.

Work hard on the hunt.

Hope you get a bit of luck during that hunt.


Having a good hunting partner is huge. I've hunted before, and they get discouraged on Day 1. You need someone who knows it won't be easy and will keep their head in the game for 6-10days etc... and be positive.
If taking a new guy...with little experience on new areas etc... I would warn him ahead of time, and say no hunt goes according to plan A, but if we keep our head in the game days 3-10 can really pay off. Ie., we need to learn the area... and give it our best shot.
I've been on some DIY hunts and when 1 guy, ie., ME, is working for 2 guys, keeping that other guys head in the game, it's a real bear!
