9 Ways to Turn Your Hunt into a Family Vacation

9 Ways to Turn Your Hunt into a Family Vacation

So much to do, so little time — particularly for the family man (or woman) who loves the outdoors. Besides holding down a job, taking care of the house and keeping vehicles gassed and running, once you have kids, much of your free time is spent on them. Ballgames, parties, vacations — it's hard to carve any time out for yourself. If the entire family loves to hunt, that's awesome. If not, then most hunters are forced to choose between family time and time outdoors. Fortunately, with these nine vacation destinations, you can seamlessly work them both in, making everybody — including yourself — very, very happy.
