Basics of hunting

Hunting weapons are generally hunting guns, according to the arrangement of different ways, firearms are divided into single-barrel, double-barrel, and multi-barrel; according to the different firing structures, they are divided into the open and concealed machine; according to the bullet movement, they are divided into wire-bore guns and smooth-bore guns. Nowadays, hunters generally use Kasai guns because Kasai guns can control a surface and are more suitable for striking moving targets, however, wire-bore guns are only focused on a point. The bullets in the Kasai bullet gun are all grains of lead sand, which fly to a distance of 30-40 meters when shooting and scatter into a drop-shaped sand mass of about 60 cm in diameter, which is also the best distance for hunting guns to kill. Generally speaking, the heavier the individual lead sand is, the stronger the killing power is, but the number of the refillable bullet is smaller correspondingly. So different types of lead sand must be used for shooting different animals.


Hunting is exciting and challenging, but the first thing to consider is safety. You have to remember that the gun ammunition in your hand is extremely lethal and the muzzle must be kept up and must not face people at any time. The gun's safety should be adjusted to a closed lock state at all times except when firing. The hand that pulls the trigger when holding the gun should hold the neck of the gun with the index finger on the protective ring of the trigger and not on the trigger. Secondly, if you are a group hunting with friends, you must keep a good formation and advance slowly and parallel, people should not rush in front or at the end. The direction of shooting is 30 degrees to 45 degrees directly in front of you. Hunting requires close cooperation with all participants and the opportunity is the same for everyone.

Sunglasses or goggles are one of the most common equipment in hunting activities. In addition to avoiding sunlight, bushwalking can prevent tree branches from scratching your eyes and block mosquitoes.

Different sports shoes need to be prepared for different outdoor environments. In the slippery jungle, you can choose boots with thick soles and strong waterproofness. On rough mountain roads, you can choose high-top shoes with slightly soft soles to protect your ankles.


4. Telescopes and rangefinders

In open areas, binoculars and rangefinders are a must for hunting. They can not only find prey from a long distance, but also screen the size of the prey, judge the behavior of the prey, and further adopt an accurate hunting plan. Hunting is also the best opportunity to experience nature, and binoculars can extend the visual distance and add to the fun of viewing the scenery.

Rifles and appropriately sized pocket knives are the main tools for hunting, but if you're hunting at night, you may need to prepare a laser sight for accurate shooting. The folding knife can meet the needs of wilderness survival and skin the prey.
