Humans are hunters by nature. If we did not hunt we wouldn’t have developed to who we are today. Though hunting has become more of a recreation nowadays, it doesn’t take away the fact that it still requires the physical endurance, skill and the mental fortitude to get the hunting done. Like the way hunting requires skill, hunting requires a lot of preparation as well especially when it comes to the equipment. It’s not only about the gun and the bullet but other stuff such as the right attire and the binoculars as well. So, if you wish to make your experience of the game hunting Victoria has, read on to this article.
What it is
Game hunting is hunting wild animals for food. It is regulated by the environmental government body. For Australia, it’s the Department of Environment. The game hunting in Victoria usually involves quails, ducks, geese and other bird species. Sometimes, when the deer season comes, hog deer are sometimes being hunted. These animal species can be hunted as trophies and can be consumed as food. This kind of food becomes more like a delicacy than a food staple because it is much harder to find, thus making it more expensive than the conventional meats like pork, beef and chicken.
Before the big game (hunting)
The first thing that you should know as a hunter is how long the hunting season going to last. As hunter, you should know that some species are inactive during winters due to hibernation. Some of them migrate southward or eastward to avoid the cold season. In addition to that, you should secure all the necessary permit and should know the span of area that you are allowed to hunt. And lastly, you should ask the government agency about the kind of species that you are allowed to hunt.
It all actually boils down to the weapon of your choice when it comes to Victoria game hunting. If you want to go old school, then the weapon of your choice would be a bow, a crossbow or a gun bow. However you should remember to choose a bow that is light weight yet is able to pack a punch. If you are somebody who wants to kill the prey (cause you are the hunter) as fast and as efficient as you can, then a shotgun or a rifle is your best friend. Just make sure that the type of gun that you carry is a gun that is allowed for you to experience the game hunting Victoria has.
