Bonfire

After a long bustle, a bonfire finally burns on a hunting camp. Rejuvenated, wet fans of forest cosiness rejoice, reddened hands are drawn to the fire. It would seem that there is a fire, and now all the worries are behind. But this does not happen not only in life in general, but even in the forest, where a person strives precisely in order to forget about all matters, problems, troubles.

Dog hunting – Greyhounds and hunting with them

At a time when people still did not have weapons that would kill game at a distance (in addition to stones and flying darts nearby), they already used domesticated dogs in collective hunts. The first wolf and jackal-like helpers of a person did not have to be trained in the persecution of the pursued animal, it was only necessary to arrive in time for the prey section.

Over the millennia of such a joint hunt in the open, something has changed, especially in the guise of dogs. True, even in medieval Europe, local breeds, rough and bestial, were very different in appearance Continue reading

Catching perch and pike perch on a “knock”
I think it was so. Once upon a time, our ancestors were severely tested - they met the arrival of the ice age. For them, I believe, it was even…

Old guns. Hunter's thoughts
To this seemingly not very urgent topic, I was forced to turn by a randomly seen gun. It was released around 1912 at the Tula Imperial Arms Factory, as evidenced…

False direction
The persecution of hunting is increasing. A well-fed layman who feels sorry for the bird, without thinking about any global problems of mankind, insulted by tabloid newspaper journalists, sees the…
