Skinning at home

It is a sin to throw away the skin taken from the carcass of a dead animal, whether it is a trophy of a successful hunt, a domestic goat, a sheep or nutria. Get acquainted with a cheap and simple method of skinning, which, in my opinion, is available to everyone.

It is a sin to throw away the skin taken from the carcass of a dead animal, whether it is a trophy of a successful hunt, a domestic goat, a sheep or nutria. Get acquainted with a cheap and simple method of skinning, which, in my opinion, is available to everyone. I use it to dress the skins of sheep, deer, marmots, rabbits and goats. But the method is suitable for dressing the skins of all mammals, especially if you want to save fur. After such dressing, the skin becomes soft and comfortable to use, for example, for making things that require cutting and sewing. Continue reading

Duck hunting with stuffed and decoy

The most effective use of stuffed animals on approaching to vast stretches devoid of high vegetation, where the bulk of ducks is concentrated in the daytime. Such places are determined on the morning dawn in the direction of flight of duck flocks, arrived on the day.

The most effective use of stuffed animals on approaching to vast stretches devoid of high vegetation, where the bulk of ducks is concentrated in the daytime. Such places are determined on the morning dawn in the direction of flight of duck flocks, arrived on the day.

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 worse than we survive the economic crisis. When other species that could not adapt to the new conditions died out, an ancient man – dressed in the skins of our ancestor with you – went to the bank of the river in which he caught fish with a bone hook, and was surprised to find that the water somehow became solid!

Having offered a prayer to his gods, he thanked them for the fact that now he would not have to swim to the coveted island. After that, a man broke ice with his stone ax and lowered a bone hook tied to a vein into a hole.

Thus began the first season of active fishing from ice. And then he (or his son, or great-great … grandson) tied a round pebble near the hook and began to knock this pebble on the bottom. And before this ancient angler had time to toss his bait ten times, he felt a lively aggressive weight on the other end of the vein. So the first man-made “eggs” appeared. To this simple tackle the expression “everything ingenious is simple!” Is as applicable as possible.

Millennia have passed, and the principle of operation of the “eggs”, as well as the “bombs” very similar to them, Continue reading
