Hunting is now not so strange to the youth. This is becoming a kind of outdoor sports and is more and more favored especially by men. However, not all people who have ever hunted are called “hunters”. Why? It is because a hunter must have full of hunting skills. For easy imagination, this article will introduce to you some decisive skills in hunting.
All the experienced hunters never go hunting for fun, which will consume much of their time and effort. In their common forests, they know where have birds, even which type of birds… they know where the animals often inhabit or come to look for prey. Therefore, when you want to hunt a certain type of prey, first you have to predict where they are and you just go straight to that place.
Some youngsters just take part in hunting trip for fun as they consider hunting to be one of their activities related to sport outdoor.
There are some predators that come and go in only one path and they often leave their footprints which are easy to look for.
To detect the prey, you should have an explanation for the meaning of any sign of the animals such as footprints, feather, the scent or the sound of them. If you rarely come into the forest, you are still able to distinguish the sounds of a lot of animals thanks to watching films about animal world.
If the animals are near you, you can hear the sound of a branch touched by the animals, the breath of them or the sound of the leaves in the wind.
To be able to take approach to the target prey, you have to know how to hide, disguise and fool them. It means that you know how to make you look like the trees or flowers around so that the animals cannot detect you. You can use branch of trees, clay or coal… to make up so that you are not like human. The animal will think you are just something not able to eat in the forest. They will not watch out for your appearance. Here are some movements that you can apply when you go hunting:
- The colors of your clothes must be similar to those of the surroundings
- Do not bring hats, caps or vivid jewelry or metal things like glass watches, glasses or necklace because such things can reflect the sun light and the animals will detect you.
- Do not bring things that are easy to make noise like keys, metal tools.
- Do not use perfumes or smelly chemical substances and do not smoke.
- Move slowly and try to hide your face and your body. Do not make any sound when you are moving.
- Approach the animals from the diverse direction of the wind.
- Try to hide yourselves under big trees or stones so that the prey cannot see you.
Some people are not used to hunting so when approaching the animals at a short distance, they are often not confident to fire the gun. You should breathe in deeply and breathe out for several times so that you can keep calm and start to shoot.
If you have a gun, you should shoot the heads, shoulders or necks of big animals.
If you use gun with toxic bullets, you should shoot where is near the hearts of the animals.
In case of the animals escaping, you should carefully follow the blood marks because if it is a dangerous predator, it can come back and go for us. Although you see the animals are shot, they have not died yet so you should look out for.
To have a nice shoot, it is necessary to prepare a gun scope or gun viewfinder so that you can see exactly where the animals are and you can have an accurate shot. In terms of hunting guns, the AR 15 is one of the most effective ones. Also, you have to choose the best red dot sight for the AR 15 on the grounds that it is the most suitable scope for this type of hunting gun. It will help you shoot the animals exactly.
