Sober hunting camp


Recommended Posts

I posted in deer hunting forum but I wanted to catch a broader audience.

I am looking to potentially join a deer camp that came to believe in a power greater than ourselves.

Just hoping against hope that might exist out there and that it might need a cook...

And I know joining a camp involves a vetting process...

Can't help you. I've always been interested in a deer camp too and hope to eventually get invited to one as I get to know more hunters. Started hunting myself in my 30s and with virtually no family members doing it. But enough about me, why does it need to be a sober camp? If you are sober and the rest of the guys like a few but aren't idiots and/or drunks, I personally can't see any issues. I've known many sober people, had many as relatives, and my belief is it isn't healthy to segregate yourself based on sobriety. Again, not that you want to join a hunting camp of frat boys passed out every night. : O But if a few guys want to and can handle a nip or two after a hunt and before bed each night, shouldn't be a deal breaker to join the camp. I know, I know, some will say I have no idea, I haven't been there but I have several relatives, my grandpa and another close relative who had a severe problem at one time and have dealt with it, are completely sober and are fine at family functions with the rest of the group having an "edger" or two.

Everyone is at a different point of recovery some may be able to handle being around it some may not. It is just what he prefers, It is no different than me saying looking for a deer camp in north east Minnesota, Some may say why does it have to be in north east why not south east. Well I may have my reasons maybe the drive. Some may say well my uncle drives 6 hours for his camp.. well I am not your uncle and I have my reasons for choosing what I choose.

So maybe it isn't a deal breaker to you but it seems like it is for him.

Jdime, I hope you find what you are looking for. I no longer deer hunt due to the camp I was in with my father, he drinks heavily and so do the other hunters. Bedtime was 2am, stands early, beer at lunch break, beer at the truck at the end of the day, bar food and drinks until close. I miss hunting but the pros were less than the cons. For some that sounds like and awesome camp, and that it may be. It just did not fit for me. Best of luck

I don't deer hunt anymore, some of it has to do with cost. I focus mainly on duck hunting small sloughs. With a canoe and my 8 year old lab ( who I adopted from a guy on this forum.) I also do some grouse hunting with the dog solo as well. I still enjoy hunting but miss the social part of it at times but I decided that it is best to do it alone at times. I do one duck hunting trip a year with a buddy of mine and we keep it calm.

    • Luxury RV camping has become increasingly popular in recent years as people look for ways to enjoy the great outdoors while still enjoying the comforts of home. With the right equipment and preparation, luxury RV camping can be a truly unforgettable experience. In this essay, we will provide you with the ultimate guide to luxury RV camping, including tips on choosing the right RV, selecting the best campsite, and packing for your trip.   The first step to planning a luxury RV camping trip is to choose the right RV. There are a variety of different types of RVs available, ranging from small and compact trailers to large and luxurious motorhomes. The right RV for you will depend on your budget, your travel plans, and your personal preferences.   One popular option for luxury RV camping is a Class A motorhome. These motorhomes are typically the largest and most luxurious RVs available, with spacious interiors, full kitchens, and even multiple bathrooms. They often come equipped with high-end features such as leather upholstery, flat-screen televisions, and high-quality audio systems. Class A motorhomes are also the most expensive type of RV, but they offer the ultimate in comfort and luxury.   Another popular option for luxury RV camping is a fifth wheel trailer. These trailers are typically larger than travel trailers and are designed to be towed by a pickup truck. They offer many of the same amenities as Class A motorhomes, including full kitchens, multiple bathrooms, and high-end features such as surround sound systems and flat-screen televisions. Fifth wheel trailers are often less expensive than Class A motorhomes but still offer a high level of comfort and luxury.   Once you have chosen the right RV for your luxury camping trip, the next step is to select the perfect campsite. There are a variety of different types of campsites available, ranging from basic, no-frills campsites to high-end RV resorts with all the amenities. When selecting a campsite, it is important to consider your budget, your travel plans, and your personal preferences.   If you are looking for a truly luxurious camping experience, consider staying at an RV resort. These resorts often offer a wide range of amenities, including swimming pools, hot tubs, fitness centers, and even golf courses. They also typically offer high-end services such as concierge service, valet parking, and room service. RV resorts can be expensive, but they offer the ultimate in luxury and comfort.   If you are looking for a more affordable camping experience, consider staying at a state or national park. These parks offer a variety of different campsites, ranging from basic tent sites to RV sites with electrical and water hookups. While state and national parks may not offer the same level of luxury as RV resorts, they do offer the opportunity to experience the natural beauty of the outdoors.     Once you have chosen the perfect RV and campsite, the final step is to pack for your luxury camping trip. When packing for a luxury RV camping trip, it is important to focus on comfort and convenience. Pack clothing that is appropriate for the weather and activities you have planned, as well as comfortable shoes for hiking and exploring.   In addition to clothing, it is important to pack all the essentials you will need for your trip. This includes bedding, towels, toiletries, and any medications or other personal items you may need. It is also important to pack food and drinks, as well as any cooking supplies you will need for meals. If you are camping in the cold weather, bring the Ocoopa Union 5s rechargeable hand warmers are easy to use for camping. First, charge it, then turn it on, and finally, place it in your gloves or pockets. Additionally, the rechargeable hand warmer has 4 heat settings, allowing you to adjust the temperature to various weather conditions. With a large 10000mAh battery, it can provide up to 15 hours of heat and could use as a power bank, making it an ideal hand warmer for extended outdoor activities.   Finally, when packing for your luxury RV camping trip, don’t forget to pack entertainment options such as books, movies, and games. While luxury camping offers many opportunities for relaxation and outdoor activities, it is also important to have options for downtime and relaxation.
