Who hunts alone? For whatever reasons being work schedule or just having bad luck in having a good hunting buddy?

I do often,
It is good therapy, just me, God, and the critters
After doing 80 hours in 5 days, there is nothing better than some time alone to unwind.

I have in the past hunted alone most of the time for what ever reasons. This year I have had the privilege of hunting with my daughter which is a special treat.

I almost always hunt with someone but this year I will probably be doing a lot of hunting by myself. The reason is because I got a place to hunt for doing some work for the owner and I can't take anyone. Therefore, I will be going solo. Kind of sucks though because I will have to pull my harvested animal out by myself and if something were to happen then I'd have to figure a way out on my own.

Many times because there is not anyone there usually. Don't mind it at all, there are times in the evening when a little company would be nice. That is when you have another scotch and listen to the coyotes.

I pretty much do. Other than opening day. The other guys don't come. I guess I shouldn't complain, I have the place to myself. But I do get a little scrared of the dark. "Little girl ghosts" is what I fear.

I am always alone when hunting. Most of the time there will be people on the lease or camp but I am also off every other Monday so I am usually alone Sunday evening and Monday.

The other guys work, so if I'm there on the weekend, they're there and are good company for the most part. I try to start, or stay, through a weekday - then nobody makes me rush my cigar and libation(s) in the evening. I always have a way to communicate in case of some emergency. No cell coverage out there, so it's wifi by the owner's house, the cabin phone (if the ranch hand next door remembers to plug it in in his room) or the InReach. If I'm alone, I always write down the general area I'm hunting, a.m. and p.m., and leave it on the table in the cabin.

I do most of my trips to the SHNF alone and if I do meet a buddy we just go to separate spots and text each other and meet afterwards.

I have to admit walking back through those woods in the dark can get spooky for me sometimes especially since I have heard some weird sounds coming from my hunting area.

I've always hunted alone,but there are people that I tell where I'll be and when I'll be back. I guess if I didn't show back up in a few weeks,they might ask someone to look for me or what's left of me.

We have a washer system at camp. When you are there you put your washer on the board for your spot number and then remove it before you leave. Helps everyone know who is out hunting. Of course if you are alone then it doesn't really matter much grin

every time! love the solitude... I bring my son as much as possible but every once in a while, I do like the brother and his kid and or a friend out, but there's nothing like the solitude of your own place!

Now that my boys are grown and gone, I prefer to hunt alone. I've just always been that way.

I like hunting by myself but last year my wife went with me and that was fun too. I'd like to get the kids into it when they're ready but will always enjoy my alone time.
