Protecting Yourself from Diseases While Hunting

Unfortunately, there are many possibilities for hunters to get sick while they are in pursuit of their prey. This is true no matter what country a hunter is in. In order to help you protect yourself from some of the sicknesses that can be encounter in the great outdoors, we recommend you take all the necessary precautions so that you and your party remain safe and so that game is the only thing you bring back with you from your hunt. This post lists some threats to hunters and how you can protect yourself and your party.

Among the most common types of diseases that hunters are likely to encounter are those that are spread by mosquitoes. One illness that has been getting a lot of attention lately is the West Nile virus. This virus is spread by mosquitoes but originates in birds. Mosquitoes feed on the birds and then spread the virus to humans by feeding on the humans, mixing the blood types. For this reason, we highly recommend that you always bring plenty of bug spray to protect yourself from mosquitoes that may be hunting you as you stalk your prey.hunting

Another disease that hunters sometimes encounter is Brucellosis. Brucellosis is a bacterial infection that is typically spread from animal to animal as they feed on one another. This is why you should take special care when dealing with hunted meat. The kill must be cleaned and cooked properly to professional specifications. Hand washing is also a must. You can find recipes as well as exact instructions on handling your kill online.

Finally, Lyme disease is a common illness for outdoors-people. This is an illness that may affect joints and bones, creating the possibility of skin and nervous system problems as well. Hunters can protect themselves in several ways from this and other diseases by:

  • Using insect repellant
  • Checking clothing and skin often
  • Removing ticks with tweezers the moment they are noticed.
  • Avoid hunting when ill. Your immune system is likely to be compromised.
  • Not eating or drinking while cleaning wild fowl or game
  • If any abnormalities are seen in the chest or abdominal cavity of the carcass, consider disposing of the entire carcass
  • Not eating raw or undercooked meat.
  • Making sure that hunting dogs are up-to-date on their vaccines

Despite these dangers that every hunter can encounter wherever he or she goes, Argentina waterfowl hunting and Argentina Wing shooting can be safe and fun when the proper precautions are taken before, during and after the hunt.

The Invisible Sportsman: 5 Ways to Stay Hidden While Hunting

There’s more to camouflage than meets the eye. That is to say, there is more to being invisible to prey than simply slapping on expensive, well designed camouflage gear and hoping for the best. You have to master the art of concealment or your hunt is bound to be a failure. So, let’s discuss some tips for concealing you from your prey.

  • Pick your camouflage outfit and gear wisely: There are many, many camouflage patterns available to hunters. However, some camouflage is better at helping you break up your outline than others. Use camouflage that is composed of earth tones and that contains natural shapes and patterns. Also, be aware of the environment you will be hunting in for the most success.
  • Make as little noise as possible: Even though Elmer Fudd never did bag Bugs Bunny, he did have it right when he would say to the audience, “Be very, very quiet. I’m hunting rabbits.” Most wild animals have super sensitive hearing compared to ours. Therefore, you should always be aware of how much noise you are making. If you are hunting in a team, agree on a set of hand signals that you can use to communicate with one another. Also, keep conversation to an absolute minimum doing so only when needed.camoflauge
  • Avoid strong smells: Of course in addition to super sensitive hearing, many animals also possess highly sensitive noses. For example, a bear’s sense of smell is 7 times better than a bloodhound’s or 2,100 times better than a human. Therefore, don’t use colognes, smoke tobacco or carry food with you into the field. Many animals will smell you coming from many miles away. Finally, remember to stay downwind of your prey if you can.
  • Remove your shine: You want to wear matted colors and remove all objects that may shine while you are in the field. This is one of the reasons hunters wear face mask, mud, charcoal, etc. They do so hoping to dull the highlights of their face e.g., cheekbones, nose ridge, etc.
  • Move slowly! Be hyper aware of your surroundings and realize that every move you make will produce noise that can spook your prey. Make your movements purposeful and much slower than they would normally be.

In short, remaining invisible to our prey is about more than just throwing on some khaki colored clothing. It is an art unto itself and once mastered will make you a more productive hunter regardless of the prey you are seeking. It will make Argentina red stage hunting and dove hunting in Argentina far more fruitful as well. After all, deer, ducks, boar, etc; have super keen senses that make us appear to be pitiful in comparison. Master these techniques and even the playing field.

The 5 Best Dog Breeds For Hunting

Scientists say that relationship between man and dog began many centuries ago when wolves – the ancestors of dogs -and man found they completed each other when searching for prey. Nowhere is this partnership more evident than when a hunter takes his trusty companion out into the wild to enjoy the sport of hunting. But which breeds are among the best? Here’s our list of the best hunting dog breeds.

  • American foxhound: This small to mid-sized canine was bred for the express purpose of hunting. And although they excel at hunting, tracking and cornering foxes – as you might guess by the name – they are also good at hunting other kinds of prey. They are hard-working, athletic and also make good family dogs as well.
  • Brittany spaniel: Brittany spaniels were first acknowledged as a breed by the American Kennel Club in 1934. Since then they have earned the reputation of being a top-notch pointer. This means that they can point and flush out birds easily. Brittany spaniels also make excellent show dogs for anyone interested in demonstrating to others how awesome these animals are.
  • Labrador retriever: Labradors are the ultimate waterfowl dog. They have bundles of energy, a natural cold-weather coat and do not mind plunging into icy water to retrieve prey. And although they perform best as bird dogs, they can also be helpful in flushing out other kinds of prey.
  • Beagle: Beagles are a lot like the American foxhound but smaller. They are persistent, energetic and love running around in the wild. Although it is not very good as a companion when it comes to hunting big game, they do excel in hunting smaller prey such as rabbits, etc
  • American Pit Bull Terrier: For hunters who enjoy going after larger prey than birds, rabbits, etc., the American Pit Bull Terrier is quite capable for pursuing and cornering wild boar, foxes, etc. They are large, scrappy and have incredibly strong jaws. We suggest you adopt this breed if you are in the market for a dog. This serves the dual purpose of potentially have a great hunting dog and helping to reform their somewhat negative image.

Which dog breed do you prefer? Was yours included in our short list of some the most successful hunting breeds. We can make sure that you have all the opportunities you need when Argentina red stag hunting in our country. We also have plenty of Argentina bird hunting for hunters.

6 Trail Camera Tips That Will Help You Get The Best Results

A good hunter uses every tool at his or her disposal to give him/her the advantage over prey animals. After all, many of the animals you hunt will have superior senses and millions of years of programming to give them the edge over you. Thus, one of the most effective tools a hunter can have at his/her disposal is a good trail camera. If you’re new to using trail cameras or if you’d just like to see better results, check out the following six trail camera tips:

  • Place your camera near water: Even the wiliest animal has to drink eventually. Thus, it is just common sense to mount your trail camera near the nearest water source. Without fail, all kinds of prey will eventually arrive and tentatively take a few sips.
  • Cover your odor: You should try to be scent free on each and every hunting expedition you take. Be cautious about what you ate that morning, what you are carrying with you, what you are wearing etc. that could give away your scent location before placing your camera.
  • Get the right camera: Take a serious look at your inventory before you go hunting. If your camera is aging or if it is low quality, consider upgrading before you head out on the trail.
  • Don’t skimp on your batteries: The last thing you want is for your trail cam to fail just as you are about to collect some valuable intelligence. Therefore, make it a point to buy the best, most reliable batteries you can afford in order to power your device. Consider buying lithium batteries as opposed to carbon or alkaline. They last much longer than either.
  • Mount the trail camera securely and strategically: Your camera should be mounted securely so that it stays in place all the time you are using it. Moreover, you may wish to put in a secure lock box specifically designed for trail camera. This will prevent it from being stolen or from bears damaging your camera.
  • Use black flash trail cameras for better nighttime results: The bright lights of your camera flash might be scaring away animals whether you are filing at night or in the day time. With black flash trail cameras you can take clear nighttime photos and videos and the illumination will remain invisible to your potential prey.

We’re confident that you will see better results when you use these trail camera tips. After all, why settle for low-quality images that only catch the back half of the deer? We have plenty of other game that you can choose from at our compound. We also have dove hunting in Argentina as well as fly fishing in Argentina.

Tips for Blood Trailing Deer

You’ve acquired a prize buck in your sights. You aim. You hit it. It limps off into the brush, you pursue it and then the unthinkable happens – you lose track of it. Nearly every hunter has had this experience and it is enough to make you want to pull your hair out. The important thing to remember about successfully blood trailing your prey is that practice makes perfect. By following a few simple rules, the tracking process can end successfully 99% of the time.

  • Know where you hit the deer: This may sound unimportant but knowing which part of the deer your arrow or bullet connected with will give you a good indication of how far it may have traveled after it was struck.
  • Watch where the deer goes after it has been shot: Watch the direction the deer travels in after you struck it. Note any markers such as trails, trees, rocks or other objects that can let you know where you should begin tracking your wounded prey.
  • Don’t move forward until you’ve found more blood: Do go aimlessly wandering in the brush. This is a great way to lose track of the blood trail. Only go forward when you have found the next blood sighting.
  • Backtrack: If you find a blood trail, follow it and then it disappears, try going back to where the trail of blood began. From there try to discover clues by noting the color of the blood the deer left behind.
  • Analyze the color of the blood trail: The color of the blood your prey left behind is very important. Pinkish, frothy blood with small bubbles usually indicates a lung hit. In this case, the deer will usually not be able to travel far. Rich, bright-red blood often indicates a heart shot. Such shots are often quickly fatal especially if there is a great amount of blood in the area. Dark, almost burgundy-colored blood indicates a liver or kidney shot. These shots can take a while to kill the deer but are always fatal. deer

Yes, the disappointment and aggravation involved in losing a deer can be overwhelming. However, by following the above tips you can make your Argentina big game hunting more successful. It just takes practice to become proficient at tracking your game after you have hit your mark. Our compound offers you plenty of opportunities to hone your tracking skills as we have red stag and other big game here. You can also spend some of your time duck hunting in Argentina.

5 Tips for Attracting More Birds

Wing shooting in Argentina for wild birds has become almost legendary with hunters from all over the world. One reason for this is because geese, ducks, partridges, pigeons and doves can be hunted here without a daily limit. In fact, some of these wild birds are considered to be pests by farmers. So, while the potential to catch your fill of wild birds is virtually unlimited here, some hunters do come up short of their goals. Why is that? Let’s look at some ways bird hunters can become bird magnets thereby increasing their number of kills.
• Position yourself for optimum traffic: It is critical to know where high traffic areas for wild birds – including doves – will be. Position yourself on either side of a water source and/or roost cover. Then, get a sense of the direction the birds will be coming in to get water.
• Set up a suitable roost: Place your roost near a power line since doves are cautious creatures. They will often sit atop a power line in order to see whether the area they are about to land in is safe.
• Make your position inviting: Assuming that you are located in a place that isn’t inhospitable to birds, add decoys to your position/roost.
• Add gravel: Many birds swallow gravel, sand and grit and hold these rocks or small particles in a muscular part of their stomachs called the gizzard. This aids them with the digestive process. Spread gravel near your roosting place and birds will know that this spot is an excellent one for an after dinner meal. birds
• Place yourself near water: Doves not only enjoy a nice drink and a body of water in which to swim, they often land in large water sources for an additional reason – safety. Doves will land in water so that they can survey the underbrush for potential predators. Situate yourself near a water source and pick them off as they fly in to land.
Ultimately, Argentina dove hunting can be as fruitful as you choose to make it. With the proper tips, experience and training you can make your location irresistible to wild birds without having to chase all over the field trying to locate them. Let them come to you. We have many such locations that are ideal for doves and other birds as well as for Argentina big game hunting.

7 Examples of Bad Hunting Etiquette

Hunters are a part of a very special community of people. We all love the outdoors, love the chase and we love sharing our experiences with our fellow hunters. Unfortunately, as with any community of like minded individuals, there are always those who chose to violate the norms and etiquette of the community at large. This is unfortunate because it takes away from the experience of hunting. Since we are a part of very special community, it behooves us to act in a manner that does not interfere with the pleasure that all of us derive from the hunt. Here are 7 examples of poor manners and bad hunting etiquette that can ruin any hunt.

  • Leaving behind empty shells and trash – As hunters, we should strive to leave the environment the way we found it. Nature is not a waste receptacle. Moreover, some kinds of litter can injure certain animals and cause them needless suffering.
  • Bailing on game cleaning – If you are hunting with a partner or in a team don’t hog all the choice duties. Split up some of the more mundane tasks such as cleaning game. Otherwise, you may discover that fewer of your friends will want to go hunting with you.
  • Talking too much – Although no one expects complete silence when they are in a hunting party, incessant talking can be irksome and more importantly it can scare game away.
  • Taking a shot that’s not yours – It’s all about respect, courtesy and coordinating your moves with your hunting partner or group. Also, going out of turn could be dangerous as well.
  • Being late – You promise your buddy or your group that you will be up and ready to go at 6:00 a.m. and when everyone is ready to go you decide to get some extra shut-eye. Not cool. Once you commit to a time to go dove hunting in Argentina with your friends keep it.
  • Not knowing the rules – Safety is of critical importance on any hunt. Know and obey the hunting rules of the location you are hunting as straying from such rules could result in injury or even death. hunting
  • Shooting outside your zone – This is of particular relevance when Argentina dove hunting. Generally, hunters agree to stay in slightly overlapping zones so that they can shoot safety and without infringing on another person’s shot. Visualize your zone each time you prepare to take a shot. This will keep you safe and liked by others in your party.

Follow these simple rules of etiquette and remember that each hunter who arrives here is an ambassador of sorts for his/her country. Most of all be safe and enjoy yourself while you are here.
