The Secret to Successful DIY Backcountry Bowhunting
by Cameron R. Hanes

The secret to successful DIY backcountry bowhunting is simple:

  • Get in the BEST shape of your life
  • Be the BEST shot
  • WANT it more than anyone
  • Hunt HARD
  • Use GOOD gear

Sound easy? Well, not exactly. It is definitely easier to type my stratagem than it is to implement. But the key is this approach is attainable for more guys than you might think. Keep in mind that there are no shortcuts to success in life or in bowhunting. The harder you work the more successful you will be.

Personally, I am not the greatest runner to ever lace up a pair of Nike running shoes, nor am I winning 3-D tournaments across the country, but I guarantee that no one works harder than I do to achieve my dreams. There might be guys who work as hard, but not harder. As a result of my obsessiveness to bowhunting success, I run a lot and consequently can hold my own against some pretty talented guys and I shoot my bow a lot to the point where I can hold my own against some pretty good shooters.

I doubt if there is going to be anyone, anywhere that will top both of these categories, but many of you, like me, can be right up there. Couple this with a never say die attitude, psychoness when it comes to equipment perfection and the utilization of bivouacking gear I can count on and success is inevitable. If I can do it, so can many of you, but this is a secret so keep it under your hat!

For more information see my article, "Guide To Do-It-Yourself Bowhunting".

For more backcountry hunting information order a copy of Cameron's book, "Bowhunting Trophy Blacktail". The book contains pages upon pages and entire chapters dedicated to the subject. Order a signed, hardbound copy today.
