Countries That Have Zapped Hunting Practice

hunting

Hunting is one of the costliest sports that people play these days, Wonder why we are saying so? Hunting practices have gone extensive and as a result, a lot of animals and rare species are going extinct. There are a lot of things that we have to take into account. Though hunting is fun, it highly disturbs the functioning of nature and its balance. People simply do not know the impact the loss of a species can have on the ecosystem. Considering the massive ill-effects that hunting can have, few countries have gone stringent on hunting activities. Let’s take a look at this issue.

Countries that have gone close to banning:

Costa Rica:

Most of us love Costa Rica for its evergreen appearance and the beauty it adds to the whole world. It is also hailed as the greenest countries in the world. Costa Rica for obvious reasons won’t be green if that is going to let people swindle its animal strength. You think killing and hunting animals is not deforestation? It is deforestation as well. So the government of Costa Rica has decided to make the hunting laws more stringent than they were before and they have decided to save the better for the future generation.

South Africa:

Africa

Two major countries of continental Africa have gone close to banning the act and talks are in process. As long as the major part of the world recognises this as a permissible activities countries will find it hard to ban them completely. Coming back, the countries that have banned hunting in Africa are Zambia and Botswana.

Zambia that is largely celebrated as a great tourist spot has come up with this drastic step to help people better enjoy nature. Zambia is known for the lions that they have. Wildlife is the best part of Zambia. According to the recent reports, it has come to the notice of the government that Zambia is losing its wildlife as a result of hunting activities of the people. It has completely banned the hunting of lions and leopards.

On a similar note, Botswana is also a place with a lot of tourists pouring in. They do not want to lose the revenue that they are making as a part of tourism, and because of that, they have made a firm decision to stop hunting activities to a great extent.

What’s the controversy here?

Though the countries have taken an appreciable step, they were also slammed by a lot of people for the decisions. The reason behind this opposition is that governments make a lot of revenue through hunting. Apart from the government, a lot of other sectors make money through such hunting activities. Bringing hunting to an immediate stop can bring them to making a lot of loss. This also makes sense, and it is expected that the countries will hold back their decision or at least ease the law.

Different Hunting Techniques Used By Hunters

Hunting is one of the predominant fun activities that are also recognised as sports activities these days. One of the few things that man still hasn’t given up since the day of creation is the act of hunting. Hunting was a skill that was developed in the early days to protect man from the danger of the lurking animals in the woods and to meet their food requirements as man lived a wandering and shelter-less life.

We are not sure as to the different techniques that people used in the yesteryears. However, with the development of a lot of hunting tools and gear, people have learnt to adopt different techniques, and here we have listed a few for you.

Hunting techniques:

Riffle hunting:

Needless to say, rifle hunting is the predominant technique used these days. With the advent of guns, if there is one way even a commoner can hold a gun, then it is as a benefit of hunting. However, not all can become rifle hunters. One has to get adequate practice to hand the rifle and take a perfect aim. Of course, you are going to waste a lot of bullets before you get your aim right, but still, riffle hunting is fun.

Bow Hunting:

This is the traditional method of hunting that is prevalent, and it is the primal nature of the sport. This is one of the primitive methods, and this is how hunting began. Riffle hunting sounds more technical and needs a lot of practice. Is that what you think? Bow hunting is equally difficult. In case if you ask me which among the two needs a lot of practice, I would always say it is the primitive bow and arrow method of hunting. This is because the chances of you hitting the spot are slim here.

Decoy hunting:

The decoy method of hunting is only used when you are hunting a selected list of animals or birds. This method is predominantly used for catching the waterfowl. In this method, the hunter chooses the animal that he is about to hunt and sets a similar animal among the prey to attract the other animals or birds. The animal that is set as the bait is called the decoy.

Blinds and Hides:

In case if your target is a swift-moving animal and if you are a hunter with a lot of patience then you can probably use this method to end your game successfully. In blinds and hides, hunters spend a lot of money set traps and also adopt camouflage techniques in order to catch the animal. This is the process of using this hides technique. Hunter needs a lot of practice as well as patience.

Tracking and trapping:

You don’t set a trap and wait here. Instead, you keep moving behind the target unlike what you do in the other methods. It is possible to incorporate this method with the bow and arrow method of hunting as that is quite easier than the rifle method.

We want to make your hunting experience the thrill of a lifetime!
