The Best Way to Book a Hunt
BookYourHunt.com lets you search for and compare prices on hunts all over the world.
When you book a flight, you probably use an online service such as Travelocity or Expedia to search for the best prices. You can find similar services for booking cruises and other types of vacations, but until now, no such thing has been available for the traveling hunter. While you can look up outfitters online, many of them don't post specific prices, making it hard to comparison shop, or even know if a particular hunt is within your price range.
That has all changed with the launch of BookYourHunt.com, an online booking platform specifically for hunters. The site allows a hunter to seach by country or animal and compare trips and prices from outfitters around the world. You'll know immediately what dates are available, how much the hunt will cost, and what is included. For example, a search of plains-game hunts for two hunters in Namibia between June and August of this year returned 37 results, from a $1,750 five-day oryx-only farm hunt to an eleven-day luxury package with multiple species for $16,443. You can ask questions, get more information about the outfitter, or book the hunt immediately. The offers come directly from the outfitter, so you pay no booking fees. BookYourHunt.com offers a "Best Price Guarantee" and will match a lower published rate for the hunt if you find one elsewhere.
How can you be sure you're booking with a reputable outfitter? The owners of the site work only with outfitters who are members of their state's or country's professional hunting association, and they employ staff members who are extremely knowledgable about the hunting industry in an effort to work only with reputable, highly qualified outfitters. They also publish verified reviews of each hunt from hunters who have recently traveled to the destination.
Jim Shockey, who recently partnered with BookYourHunt.com, said, "I am very much a traditionalist when it comes to hunting, but I see BookYourHunt.com as the future of booking hunts and something that will benefit the hunting industry for years to come. BookYourHunt.com's focus on transparency and ethical hunting are very much in line with my core beliefs, which cemented my decision to invest in the company."
BookYourHunt.com now works with more than three hundred outfitters and has over a thousand hunts to choose from, and this new service is poised to be a game-changer for the hunting industry, allowing hunters from all walks of life to search for and book the hunts that are right for them.
