Not every person likes hunting! The fact is that majority of people are too scared to face any kind of animal while other people are totally opposite to that. People who have a craze of hunting are most likely to hunt on a regular basis. But it is not a piece of cake. Even if you are a professional and have a years of experience doing animal hunt, you still need to be cautious of several things. So here are certain tips that will help you do safe hunting and make your hunting adventure more enjoyable and successful:
Try being deliberate: When you decide to hunt, the very first thing to keep in mind is you have to be as slow as possible be it walking or talking. Try to stop as long as possible and stand still. It is always a good idea to keep checking your watch to keep track of the time periods to stay still.
Don’t move on hearing a noise: If you are likely to feel a deer somewhere around you, it is better to stick to your place and hide in the bush or behind the tree. Stay calm for some time and do not panic because deer may take a while to stare but just know that it will go away after a few minutes.
Handle with care: If you are hunting for the first time, remember to still hunt rather than following the prey because you never know that your prey could also get wild and attack.
Try knowing the quarry’s pace: Choose your destination according to the direction and speed of your prey. Before you start to hunt, analyze each and every move of the quarry. You can make use of a trail camera to track movements of the animals so as to observe their movement patterns, what times they come out towards the bushes etc.
Clear the lanes: When you have taken your position either in a bush or behind a tree, try to take such a position from where you can attack in all the directions. It is better to take a position that does not have to make you move over and over again.
Be brave and don’t give up: Sometimes it takes more than the usual time to find an animal and hunt him down, but that doesn’t mean you have failed at hunting. Just don’t give up and start looking for smaller spots where you think something might be hidden.
Watch out of the quick drop: When you have shot an animal, some might drop at the shot but may recover quickly and start running again. So instead of getting scared, prepare yourself for another shot. As soon as the animal gets up, shoot him again.
Clear the clutter: It is always a smart idea to clear the unnecessary bushes for the area where you are hiding, this will help to make the least noise when you are to approach an animal.
