Best Hunting Trips for 2020

The hunts above are just a few of our Best Hunting Trips of 2020. Just know that Specialty Adventure Services has many, many more.

Update 06/04/20 –

I know Covid and the riots have created a lot of uncertainty, fear and economic hardship, resulting in substantially fewer hunt bookings this spring. However, we can expect to see some great opportunities this summer for last minute hunts. S.A.S has some of the Best Hunts of 2020 available.

Happy 2020

Happy 2020. Man, 2019 absolutely flew by. My twins are now 4 years old and my other two girls are 10 and 12. Next thing I know they are going to be off to college. I truly hope you and your families had a blessed Christmas and a Happy New Year.

If you are on your way to Dallas Safari Club as I write this, I wish you safe travels and a great show. As for me, I am heading to Hermosillo to go help on a Desert Mule Deer hunt. I will be with a good friend of mine who is the Outfitter and one of Specialty Adventure Services hunters.

Hunting Trips in 2019 were fantastic.

Let’s start 2020 off by thanking all of you who have given me the opportunity to help you put a trip together. It means a lot to me to have your trust. Second, I wanted to share with you some of the best hunting trips of 2020 that I personally like and would like to do myself.

Take a look and see what you think, and please don’t ever hesitate to contact me if you, your family or your friends are looking for a hunt. I will do all I can to help steer you to the best hunt.

God bless, Shad.
