Hunting is an avid pastime enjoyed all over the world. Once it was used as a means of providing the family with fresh meat but has since become more of a sport than anything else. There are some groups that are vehemently opposed to hunting, stating cruelty to animals. In some parts of the world, overcrowding and a lack of food causes greater cruelty by starvation.
Man has hunted since the beginnings of time and will continue to do so. Whether or not you are opposed to hunting, it remains an avid sport for many people that enjoy nature and the predatory skills honed by hunting. If you are a beginning hunter, or are interested in learning some of the general basics of the sport, this article will cover some of the particular when it comes to hunting.
Do I have to have a license?
In most cases, yes you must have a hunting license. Each hunting license is specific to the type of game you are going after. You cannot go duck hunting if you only have a deer hunting permit. The end result will be a very heavy fine.
There are some exceptions to having a license. Some states have annual days that are allotted for people to be able to hunt without having a license. Please make sure and check to find out when these "free" days are.
Also, most states require a hunter's education course in order to buy a license. The courses not only teach you gun safety but also give you some education on how to hunt. These courses can make the difference between life and death.
The Department of the Interior is the one that is responsible for the overall regulation of all individual states Department of Natural Resource or U.S. Game and Fish Department both of which regulate hunting seasons and hunting licenses.
There are some sports that have a limit on the number of license that can be purchased in a particular season. The reason for this is to protect the numbers of animal bagged and also apply to fishing as well.
What material is covered during hunter education classes?
Hunter education classes cover topics ranging from the different hunting seasons on to first-aid. They also teach rudimentary gun safety and what type of clothing is needed for each season.
Some classes can instruct students on how to field dress or track an injured animal. Typically hunter education classes are offered to middle school children before they reach the age of being able to hunt by themselves or with an adult. Safety is the most important aspect of these classes.
What are game seasons?
Game seasons are the weeks of a year that a certain animal is allowed to be hunted. Most game seasons have a limited number of kills that are allowed and this limit can also vary by type.
Duck hunting is a sport in which you not only have to have the prowess to shoot and kill a duck, but you must also identify the duck before shooting. Game seasons have strict rules on bagging and tagging the animal so it is imperative to know your prey before you journey out into the field, marshland or woods.
What laws are associated with hunting?
There are numerous laws associated with hunting. The first is the requirement is a hunting license. Other laws include what time of year the season begins, when it ends and what the limitations on killing game are.
Remember: it is important to know your state's laws or the state laws in which you will be hunting. Failure to read the rules will not help you if you are caught by a Fish and Game officer.
Should I mount my trophy?
Most hunters elect to mount trophies from their kills that they are proud of. Most often you will see bucks (male deer) that sport many points on their racks. Points on a buck are the little horns that branch off from the main set of horns rising from their skull.
Whether or not you elect to mount a trophy kill is completely up to you. You do have to decide rather quickly and the expense can be quite a lot not to mention the amount of time you will have to wait to have the trophy returned to you.
