Most of our hunting occurs in the desert. Our hunting areas are characterized primarily by sagebrush, creosote brush, and cholla cacti. It’s pretty rough terrain subject to very harsh weather extremes. From foot scorching, mouth parching heat in the summer to bone chilling nights in the winter, the desert has a range of temperatures. It also has monsoons, flash floods, wicked lightning, and sand storms. Oh yeah, and it’s a desert. So all the water I have to drink to stay hydrated is packed in on my back. The desert is a challenging place to hunt and an even more challenging place to backpack hunt.
Welcome to Modern Hunters. We hope that this site will be a place for sharing stories and perspectives on wild eating. The plan is to feature articles covering every aspect of procuring wild food, from fitness training and outdoor gear, to cooking and eating your harvest. You’ll find detailed how-to’s, gear reviews, recipes, and advice from our own trials and tribulations as self-taught hunters.
Whether you’re an experienced hunter, a novice hunter, or just curious about the culture of modern hunting, we’re glad to have you.
