Whether you’ve been saving for 20 years, or took a long shot on some good odds, drawing your Big Game Tag is kind of a big deal. Whether it’s tears of elation, or a righteous shout of ‘about damn time’. A lot of hunters can feel overwhelmed with finding big game in their allotted 500 or so square mile unit. Fortunately you have arrived at the right place to learn everything you need to know #ForTheHunt. I'll go over some basics on what you can expect to find, with a few article suggestions to get started for your 2016 Big Game Tag.

What does #ForTheHunt mean?

#ForThehunt is the blog of DIY Hunting Maps with the sole purpose of helping people Draw Tags, Scout Those Units, Hunt Those Units, and everything else that goes along with hunting. I chose a hashtag for the name because I would much prefer this become a community, instead of a monologue. If you're posting something to social media showing how you prepare for the hunt, tag us and include the hashtag #ForTheHunt. We’ll be sure to answer back on social media and give it a share!

How to Access

Access is easy, on the very top left of every webpage you should see ‘DIY Blog’.  To access it, just click there.  If you see ‘Exit Blog’ instead, you’re already in the blog, so you use the navigation menu to find an aspect of hunting and browse the available articles. Clicking 'Exit Blog' will bring you to DIYHuntingMaps.com
