These days, hunters have accumulated a lot of methods for chasing the target animals when they start their hunting trip. Many people still believing the way that consumes much effort but there are more ways to lessen the energy of people for hunting. Instead of applying old – fashioned methods with low effectiveness, we could keep pace with the present time, using modern equipment. Today, I will introduce to you some skills for hunting and some tools required.
Skills for hunting
New hunters often get confused with the animals when they stand in front of them. The reason for this is that they are not confident and still afraid of being defeated. In addition, this is also a way that hunters do not know how to deal with their prey. There are several skills that hunters need to master as bellows.
I know that hunters that have accumulated lots of experience never comes near the animals to threaten or to attract them as they know this means putting them into danger even though they are in their familiar forest or hunting region.
However, professional hunters are really good at giving prediction. They will count on the sound they hear, they actions the see and everything they feel to give exact directions for their hunting trip.
Therefore, when hunters have gathered much experience, they will know where the animals settle down and where they come and go. If they hunt new kind of prey, they will also use their skills to figure out the place of the prey.
As a beginner, you had better learn from experienced hunters who are willing to share with you all the necessary skills you need to predict.
Able to detect the prey
The ability to detect the prey is really important. We cannot deny that we have to detect the prey first then we can find the way to hunt it. If we even cannot detect where the prey is, we will fail to see and hunt them.
There are many tips for you to grab the trace of the animals like using a scope, tracking them or disguising and following them.
However, please note that all the preys are dangerous to you so should not make noise or make any sign when the preys tend to pay attention to you. In addition, you have to keep distance with the prey so that they could not see you. It is also a failure if you let the animal see you by chance.
Make it easy to approach
It is not easy to take an approach to any prey. Some types of animals are feared of human beings so they will run far away when they see us while some others are very dangerous to us.
So approaching can be considered to be of the most challenge. You have to know how to trick the prey, how to hide how to avoid encountering them. One of the most useful methods is disguising but nowadays, disguising may make hunters fall into dangers.
You know hunting requires a lot of equipment and in this part I will introduce to you.
A hunting gun
A hunting gun is compulsory for all the hunters. Even though while hunting, we do not use the gun as we do not want to kill the animal, we had better still bring it so as to prevent dangerous cases. For example, you encounter a lion by accident. All of us are scared, even the professional hunters. If we have a gun, we can threaten them in many ways: shooting in their legs or shooting into the air.
A bow is now quite popular (modern types). Unlike the bow in the past, a bow of our present time is more flexible and can give exactness for hunters. Apart from this, the bow is one of the very few types of friendly hunting weapons.
More specific, some other weapons often kill the prey right away but the bow just wound them and the wounds will be healed quite soon. Therefore, people are more interested in this tool.
The spear was once very famous in the war time. It was also very favored when ancient people went hunting. The spear is sharp and can wound the prey right away when it pokes into the prey’s bodies.
However, one disadvantage of using the spear is that we can only catch animals of larger sizes at short distances. If the animals are small, it will be more difficult to drive the spear exactly. However, with a large prey, it is possible.
In addition, if we want to wound the beasts that are very threatening, we had better use some poison to defeat them. The beasts are very strong and can have no severe wound if we only use a spear.
