Surely any hunter has tried or at least thought of trying rabbit hunting at least one in his lifetime. Given that it's so popular even today, it doesn't seem awkward at all that everybody is on a rabbit hunting fever whenever the season is kicking off. However, if you haven't already experienced it and still think whether or not to go on that hunting field, then maybe a brief review on this particular type of hunting will make you think about it no more. Read on for essential facts about rabbit hunting, some of which even experienced hunter may not know.

Firstly, rabbit and hare hunting is a worldwide spread phenomenon, managing to attract hunters of all ages and social background. The biggest problem this hunting variety faces towards common belief is that few people consider it a serious and tough type of hunting, such as boar for instance. This is because very few people, compared to the masses, know what rabbit hunting is all about and how difficult it can get, even with the help of man's best friend. Nevertheless, those that fully understand this give it the appreciation it deserves, and make their contribution to changing people's inherited ideas felt. In addition, with sustained efforts rabbits and hares are slowly becoming evenly accepted among the mot popular game types in many areas. This comes as a logical consequence of these creatures' amazing features, which makes hunting them an extremely complicated process.

From the start you should know that rabbits are no example of evolutionary stagnation; they've developed sensationally keen senses which allow them to defend against predators. Their preferred tactic is avoiding a direct confrontation, and their amazing sight and hearing abilities make detecting a threat from quite a distance. Also, they have a wonderfully adapted sense of smell, which is useful not only in its survival as predator radar, but in finding food also. In fact, all these great sensorial aptitudes, coupled with the ability to camouflage perfectly into the bush, are like a protective aura for the little creature, a shield meant to keep danger always one step behind. Speaking of steps, the rabbits "super-power" is its famous ability to sprint vivaciously and at high speeds, as well as its legendary and somewhat unexpected endurance.

The spot-and-run strategy has served the little varmint well throughout the ages, but facing a pack of hunting beagles even this is often not enough to save its life. Beagles are specially trained hounds that rely exclusively on their smell to chase and kill rabbits, and bringing a pack along with you on your hunting sessions will surely make a difference. However, no pack of beagles, no matter how well trained and experienced, will do the whole hunt because you, s hunter, play an essential role in the final success. It is up to you to guide them if they loose track of the rabbit, as well as ordering them which rabbit to chase in case several of them pop from bushes as they sense danger.

As you can see, rabbit hunting is more than a Sunday afternoon kind of sport, forcing you to make decision strategically, make every opportunity count and to give your best every time. Hunting experts guarantee that no hunt will be similar to the next, which means that routine is not in rabbit hunting dictionary under the letter "R". Or at all.

This article is for true hunters. I want to help all of you out there that have been hunting for years with little luck. This is not a fluffy article it is the truth and I will give you the facts. From years of hunting and thousands of dollars wasted I have found what works. I like to be comfortable while hunting and I don't like to come home empty handed. The number one thing for hunting success is not to be in the woods. How many times have you been in the woods and a deer finally stumbles upon you to look you in the eyes, snort and stomp, then split before you can shoot? If you were not in the woods that would never have happened. What about the time it was so cold so you bundled up walked a few miles climb up a tree and then spooked the buck of a life time because the wind changed? Again if you were not in the woods that would never have happened.

This is another way to explain this to you. While you go out shopping I get a hunting suite the same exact color and pattern of your wall and stand their motionless. What is the chance you will know something is not right? Now how about I go get a dog house popup blind and sit it in the corner of your house and it's the same color and patter of whatever the area is? I think there would be no fooling you at all! I know what if I got something that smelled familiar to you and poured it all over myself? Would any of these scenarios or and combination together fool you? Most likely not!

What I am getting at is when we are out hunting it's exactly like walking into someone's home. The ticket is not to be noticeable. That might sound "goofy" as this is what you already know this. The issue here is you and every other hunter has been conditioned to hunt a specific way! The wrong way!

If we setup a contest say an Indian that hunted for his survival and us that do it for sport who would kill the game first. It doesn't even come down to reasons for hunting but technique. Do not be in the woods while hunting! You must be part of the woods while hunting. Stand out as little as possible! The following are a few hunting techniques I use and that do work. I also suggest to limit your spending to a few hunting products that do work and then you will not have to buy anything but bullets and a license for years to come.

The best technique that you can possibly use that entails a little effort is digging a hole. If you can dig a hole you can kill deer! I have killed may deer while hole hunting. You dig a hole in the summer about 4? deep you can hunt from it. This is a great strategy for many reasons.

Hunting Deer With A Bow For Beginners

(category: Hunting, Word count: 518)
Share this article on: Facebook, Twitter, Whatsapp

Bow hunting is not easy. One of the most difficult things to do is to get close enough to the prey and fire that bow of yours. Nevertheless, once gun season comes to a close you will end up being in that scenario one way or another at one point in time when hunting. Hunting with a bow, during the times when gun season is over is a daunting task. There aren't that many places to hide, because most if not all leaves are gone by this time and the hunter needs to be cautious and experienced. Many hunters try hiding on trees to be able to avoid being detected by their pray. The most popular pray is deer, and deer hunting with a bow is an excellent and rewarding pass time. Hunting deer with a bow gives the hunter an advantage when doing so in a close area. Many experienced bow hunters hunt for deer at pine forested areas where deer go to hide. Hunting in such areas takes away the deer's advantage, the advantage it would normally have due to the bows limited range. It is best advised to find a heavy trail leading into a forested area, an area with pine, climb a tree that oversees the vicinity. Have in mind that the best range to fire a bow is within a 50 yard radius. It is imperative that you find a good spot to hide. Staying on the edge of this area will inevitably drive your pray away. You will stick out like a shore thumb and will never get a good chance to fire that bow of yours. Experienced hunters know well that deer, especially during the end of the hunting season, are extremely cautious when entering or approaching open hardwoods. Nevertheless, they are relaxed and carefree when entering a pine thicket. A thick pine area provides deer a good hiding place, it is close cover that allows them to feel secure and don't expect anyone to be there.

The hunter needs to stay alert at all times if there is a chance to kill a deer. Every experienced hunter will tell you that in most cases they hear their pray before they see it. Most of the time, hearing a sound is what makes the hunter look towards a direction, towards the direction of the pray. Being alert is very important for the hunt, especially when hunting with a bow; more so when hunting in a wooded pine area. Deer will be more likely to sneak up to the hunter in this type of area. They occasionally snap a twig in pine thickets but could sneak up behind you without making a single sound. That's why many hunters prefer to have hearing equipment with them during these kinds of hunts. When hunting with a bow, you need to get up close so you will need a good advantage over the pray. Aside from the hearing aide, the good warm cloths and boots and hat the hunter should have a good fine tuned hunting bow.

Whitetail deer hunting is one of the most popular hunting genres in the entire world with more and more enthusiasts every year. For a first time whitetail deer hunter it can be a rather difficult thing to do that is why a few tips and tricks about this type of activity are needed in order to start out with decent results.

Experienced hunters recommend checking the hunting equipment when going into the stand, not later when a buck will eventually walk out. Check if your scope is clear, the shells in the chamber or if you use a bow, check if your bow will draw back properly. There are many issues to take into consideration that is why we strongly advise to prepare well ahead.

If you plan on hunting whitetail deer in a food plot or a large field it is recommended to do it during the late hours of the day. Remember that deer like heavy cover so it is advisable to try and clear a path through the cover that you consider these animals might be using. The whitetail deer usually prefers using the easiest routes possible. Once you have set up a path, hunt over the built path in a hunting tree stand.

If using deer calls isn't your cup of tea ( mainly because you are afraid of scaring these animals ), it is advisable to use it only after you see a deer that you are not willing to shoot. Once you have done so, you will notice that it doesn't scare them and you will observe their reactions. Be sure to use the most suitable calls, otherwise the animals will get suspicious.

The best advice possible is to hunt whenever you have the possibility. Experience is crucial, only by going out there in the wilderness you will learn more about their habitat, feeding habits and other characteristics that you will eventually use in your advantage. We strongly suggest that you follow our advice and the next time you have the possibility to hunt, don't hesitate, you know what they say: practice makes perfect and this is statement is entirely applicable for hunting not only whitetail deer but other animals as well.

When you are about to hunt in a new area, it is advisable to hunt at a new stand each day for a short period of time as this is the most efficient way to learn about the deer movement routes. If you spot a deer and shoot it and afterwards you jump it up a very short distance from the position you have made the shot, it is advisable to stand back and give it time to take its last breath, if you shot it during the late hours of the day it is recommended to wait overnight.

If you plan on hunting whitetail deer with a bow, experienced hunters recommend doing it from a tree stand because it is way more efficient in comparison with hunting from ground level. Another advice, use only one pin because it is easier to aim high or low on the whitetail deer than attempt to remember to use a specific one when the large one walks out.

We hope that our suggestions will come in hand and on your first attempts on hunting these animals you will get at least decent results. Remember; practice every time you have the chance.

The History Of Fox Hunting

(category: Hunting, Word count: 522)
Share this article on: Facebook, Twitter, Whatsapp

Fox Hunting has always been seen as a British activity during which highly trained dogs, as well as human hunters on horseback, pursue the red fox. Animal rights activists find the 'blood sport' to be barbaric. However, its participants and proponents see it to be a traditional equestrian sport, as well as an important aspect of England's aristocratic history. In fact, even though it does take place in several countries, its roots can be traced to the British.

Known as venery, the use of scent hounds to track prey dates way back to Assyrian, Babylonian, and also ancient Egyptian times. But, it was in England, using the Agassaei breed of dog, that fox hunting was really popular, taking place before the Romans even arrived.

Later, the Romans brought over the Castorian and Fulpine breed of hounds, as well as the brown hare and several species of deer to use as quarry. Wild boar was also known as a hunted animal.

Norman hunting traditions began when William the Conqueror arrived, using Gascon and Talbot hounds. In fact, the cry of 'tally ho' is the Norman equivalent to the French 'il est haut,' meaning he is up.

1534 marks the first known attempt at fox hunting, taking place in Norfolk, England. There, farmers used their dogs to chase foxes as a way of pest control.

It wasn't until the 17 th century that organized pack began to hunt hare and fox, while it those used specifically for the sport of fox hunting weren't used until the 18 th century.

The Industrial Revolution saw people moving out of the country, instead settling in towns and cities where they could find work. Even though roads, rails, and canals split up the hunting land, it made it more accessible to people who wanted to hunt. Also, the improvement of shotguns during the 19 th century allowed for game shooting to gain popularity.

Even though it is viewed as a usually typical rural British sport, hunting using hounds does take place all over. Those hunts in the U.S., Canada, Ireland, and also India are considered to be, to some extent, a British Empire legacy. However, some do claim that the first pack that was used solely for fox hunting was in the United States.

Other countries, influenced by the Greek and Romans, also have a tradition of fox hunting using hounds. For example, both France and Italy still have fox hunts. But, in countries such as Switzerland and Germany, fox hunting has been outlawed.

As of 2004, 170 registered packs found in the United States and Canada were included by the Masters of Foxhounds Association of America, as well as many more farmer, or non-recognized, packs.

When fox hunting is done in the United States, the pursued fox is often not caught. In fact, they are trained so they aren't caught during the fox hunt.

During the late summer, young hounds are taken on hunts called "cubbing," during which puppies are taught to hunts while the young foxes are taught to give chase. The proper season usually begins in early November.

Intro To Airsoft

(category: Hunting, Word count: 286)
Share this article on: Facebook, Twitter, Whatsapp

Airsoft is a military/law enforcement sport simulation, where players participate in a mock style combat with military like weapons and tactics. Firearms are 1:1 scale models of real firearms. A typical example of an airsoft firearm is: firing 6mm or 8mm spherical, solid plastic BBs of usually .12, .20, or .25 grams, with propulsion for the projectile provided by manually compressed springs, compressed gas, or electric motors.

Airsoft as a sport is extremely popular in eastern Asia, in Japan, China, Taiwan, and Hong Kong. This popularity is a result of real arms being difficult or impossible to obtain because of local laws. For this and other reasons the vast majority of Airsoft guns, accessories, and aftermarket upgrade parts are made in Japan, China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Korea. For a while it was rumored that Airsoft was made illegal in Mainland China. That is just a rumor though as it is actually very legal and extremely popular.

The popularity of Airsoft is starting to grow in the West. Especially in countries like the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Germany, Spain, Finland, Italy, Belgium and Denmark. Starting in 2003 Daisy once again started marketing airsoft guns for sale in the US, under their "Powerstrike" brand name. Trying to get in on the expanding market, Powerstrike and other competing models have started to appear in mass across the US. The Internet auction site, eBay, has noticed the increased interest in airsoft products as well, and as a result has created several categories specifically for the thousands of listings of airsoft gear and guns.

Puma Knives Why A Bowie Blade Takes The Cake

(category: Hunting, Word count: 562)
Share this article on: Facebook, Twitter, Whatsapp

A Bowie knife today refers to almost any large, wide-bladed knife with a curved and sharpened tip. The fancy presentation blades often carry some reference to Jim Bowie who was famous as the designer of the original knife. Not only are such knives decorative in nature and appearance today, but they are an efficient and comprehensive tool for the outdoorsman, hiker, camper or anyone who hunts recreationally or for food.

A number of features help to make this knife style perhaps the most famous of any type of knife in the history of the United States, at least. The first element is the size of the knife. It typically has a blade that is at least six inches in length and may extend to a foot or more in length. In fact, at this size, it resembled a short sword more than a knife. The length of the knife is matched by the width of the blade - usually from one and a half inches to two inches in width. The wide blade makes it usable as a small hatchet or machete for the hunter who needs to chop some wood to get a fire going or to clear a spot for a tent or other shelter for the night.

For those who hunt, a Bowie knife's curved tip is ideal for the more delicate work of skinning out the animal while the guard protects the hands. Anglers use the curved tip for cleaning fish and preparing the fillets for a quick dinner over a campfire. Hiker's and backpackers appreciate the fact that the Bowie knife is multidimensional in its uses so that additional tools are unnecessary, thus reducing the weight of the backpack or hiking pack. At the same time, the fact that the knife is not double-sided provides for more safety in carrying and using the knife.

Another positive feature of today's Bowie knives, just as in the originals made during the 1800s is the quality of the steel used in the blade. These knives typically use a high carbon steel that provides both the ability to not require repeated sharpening in order to maintain the cutting edge and the flexibility to not snap with the stress of everyday use.

While the qualities of the steel are critical in the reputation of the Bowie knives throughout their history, this is one area where modern science has not yet caught up with the secrets of the original makers. Black, the blacksmith who is credited with producing the original knife carried by Bowie and made famous during his lifetime, died before sharing his secrets for the blade strength, and his process has not been duplicated even with modern means.

Today's Bowie knives tend to have more elaborate handles and decorative touches, but the balance and clean lines have not changed much since the originals. High carbon stainless steel blades are joined with composition handles, or sometimes bone, wood or metal handles in order to create a beautiful and utilitarian product. Handles are even embellished with brass, silver or gold decorative elements.

There are several companies out there who produce both inexpensive and high-end bowie knives for collectors and users alike. Bowie is a name outdoorsmen can count on for quality and usefulness no matter what the need.
