I was recently on a thread that mentioned a DIY hunt and I was wondering what constitutes a DIY hunt. To me a DIY hunt consists of a hunt where there are no commercial services used. If you are flown out with a charter service and dropped off in a remote location is this still a DIY hunt? Do you have to be alone? I don't think that being solo is the factor. I'm sure that everyone agrees that of you have a guide then of course it is not a Do It Yourself hunt. Of course the guys that have been on the 7 rams in 7 ranges quest are definitely in the DIY category.
I'm just curious as to what people think. Does it matter if you use a charter flight? Does it matter how many people are in your group? What about if you pay for scouting services or a drop camp? Was someone signaling you with hand signals from across the valley to get your moose?
So what does a DIY hunt mean to you?
