The Member’s Research Section, in the back of every subscriber issue of Eastmans’ Hunting Journals or available digitally, breaks down 11 western states by explaining their draw processes, big game units, trends, tag allocations, draw odds, and unit quality. Each state is unpacked by experts who dedicate over 2000 man hours of research each year to bring you the latest and best intel. We speak with state game agencies, biologists, outfitters and, of course, the everyday hunter so that we are sure you are getting the best possible information out there.
For example, say a historical powerhouse of a mule deer unit in Arizona is currently experiencing a bit of a downturn. Would you want to burn years worth of preference points on a hunt that isn’t what it was in years past? Without our up to date trend evaluation found in your copy of the Arizona MRS you might do just that and it would be a shame.
Or… say you’ve never hunted “out west” and decide it’s time to get off the bench and into the game. The only problem is decoding the vast amount of information from each state is like drinking from a fire hose! The Eastmans’ MRS will not only help you understand the application and draw processes of each state it will help you pick a starting point. Making a DIY adventure of your very own not only possible but realistic. We receive correspondence on a weekly basis from folks who have used our MRS to get them started in western big game hunting and experienced success that they had only dreamt of.
