Have you ever perched in a tree stand, watching for big game? Listened to the crackle of branches and brush being trampled as a large buck steps into the clearing? Or have you hunted elk, moose, sheep, or bears? Big game hunting takes a lot of patience, because these huge animals tend to travel alone. But the wait is worth it when you get a chance at a trophy animal.

Enter the Great Outdoors Sports Zone to learn about the history, gear, rules, and best techniques connected to big game hunting. You’ll discover:
• Where different big game animals live.
• What gear you need to become an expert big game hunter.
• How hunting rules help preserve big game populations.
• How to cook your game after it has been harvested.
