The hunting season is officially on!! Now, you can take out your hunting rifle and go for hunting. If you’re a person that correlates this quote,” Hunting is not a Bloodsport, it is a sport that is in my blood,” you are so ready!!
Every year, some countries such as America, Europe, and Australia declare a legal time for hunting for particular species of animals and birds, and this is known as Open Season. The government creates specific laws and dates for that so that it won’t turn into a disastrous situation.
So when it‘s officially declared, and dates are out now, you can plan your hunting trips with family or friends. And one essential thing is the place where you’ll stay for the entire trip. So hunting cabins or log cabins are the most common types of houses that people prefer. So today, we are going to tell you all about the small hunting cabins and how you can decorate them accordingly.
What is a Hunting Cabin?
The hunting cabin is a log cabin, which is a better option than sleeping in a tent. So this cabin comes in use when you go hunting trip on secluded places. This house contains everything, such as cooking, sleeping, and lounge area. In short, it is a mini version of a traditional home but with the hunting tools.

Why You Need It?
It is always good to have a place to sleep, whenever you go to a mountain for hunting. This log cabin has bare walls and floors, to provide a feeling relaxed from the noisy town environment.
What is There in a Small Hunting Cabin?
Did you ever think of living in a place where there is no electricity and other facilities? If no…Then do think! Because there is a lot of adventure in living these places. Sounds odds? It may feel like that when you think at first, but it is indeed an adventure.
So let’s talk about the interior of a hunting cabin. The interior of this is quite different from a house in downtown. All the facilities are somewhat similar, but they do not run on electricity. Of course, where are you gonna find these things on a hilltop! Funny Right! But that’s the hidden fun in these trips.
Below are the common and essential things that you will need in a small hunting cabin:
Interiors of the Hunting Cabin
1. Bunking Beds
If you’re planning to go on this interesting hunting trip with kids, it is neccessary to create a space for them in the house. Use bunking beds to maximize the floor space and also to give some separate space to them.
Another interesting thing that you can include in your house is the hammocks! And if you’re not aware of this thing, it is a sling made from rope, fabric, and net, and it is used to sleeping and sitting (or whatever you wanna do with it!). You can also hang it outside if you wanna do a campfire with family.
3. Pull-Out Sofas
Pull-out sofas are a good option, as they are space-efficient and multi-functional. You can use it as an extra seating place when playing an indoor game or as storage. These sofas are the staple of the hunting cabins. Many other furniture items are specially made for hunting houses, you can include them.
A fireplace is super essential when you’re living in the mountains. It is actually freezing cold in the night so, it is good to have one in your hunting cabin.
Now, let’s talk about the design and decors of a hunting cabin. As we already told you before, these cabins are very minimalistic and only have stuff that is required.
The overall theme is kinda animal hunting theme, you’ll find heads of the animals that are hanging on the wall (they are used as a trophy).
1. Animal Skin
Some people also love to hang animal skin on the wall, especially when they haunted a tiger. You can even use a fake one (which is a better option). You can use these as a rug and employ it on the floor to get some warmth on the cold winter nights.
2. Deer Antlers
This is also a great interior for your cabin if you haunt a deer with beautiful antlers. You can mount them on the wall.
3. Wooden Decors
Mostly these houses are made up of timber, so it is good to use wooden decors. You can include a wooden pendant light fixture or wooden lamp to achieve a proper log cabin look.
4. Hunting Tools
Place some giant hooks on the wall to carry your hunting tools and equipment. Place your riffles and guns on the floating shelves, as they become handy when you see an animal near your hunting cabin.
Things to Keep in Mind:
There are some problems that you may face with the haunting cabins (small ones, so don’t worry!):
- Try not to insulate any place as there might be chances that mice will make their nest in these places.
- Always make windows in your cabin, as they are beneficial. It can help you to see any dangerous animal nearby or not. Also, you can keep an eye on your kids (no one can ever stop kids from doing unexpected things).
- Always keep a first aid box in the cabin that includes bug repellant cream, an antiseptic, and some other travel medicines that you require during your hunting trip.
Hunting can be a great adventure with your family, but if you are not ready with the right planning and place, your plans may get spoiled. So always prepare in advance whenever you plan a mountain hunting trip with your family. Hope this piece of content helps you in understanding the hunting cabin.
