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.

First, the bonfire needs to be constantly or at least periodically monitored. I will not be a pedant, I will not repeat what troubles a street bonfire can do. It’s enough that it will simply go out, and again in the rain or in the snow you have to repeat the whole long process of kindling it. Continue reading

Table in the forest

Well, if you intend to live a few days on a hunting bivouac, most likely someone from the team will not be too lazy to build a real table for a quick morning snack, and for more solemn evening meals. In other cases, a piece of film or tarpaulin, or even just forest litter and a few pieces of birch bark, will serve as this tableware. In any case, one will have to “camp” in the forest somehow.

It is widely believed that hares are not strong on a wound. Perhaps this is true for the autumn, not yet dressed in winter thick hare fur. But even not faded wounded animals can sometimes go a considerable distance. There are cases when a mortally wounded rook ran several tens of meters before falling. With a lighter wound, the chased hare stubbornly leaves and can completely get lost in the more often. Therefore, you should always peel the shot hare and look for drops of blood. But without a dog, the wounded animal is best left alone for a while, allowing him to calm down and lie down.

All of this comes down to the need recognized by most hunters for the need for a strong shot at a hare in order to save both himself and him from unnecessary torment. Despite the variety of rifles (12th or 16th caliber) of shells, the most suitable for rabbit hunting, according to some, are trunks with full chokes (among other requirements Continue reading
