- What is predator hunting?
Predator hunting is when you’re pretending to be an injured animal in order to draw in the animal that it typically preys on. For example, if you were wanting to pretend to make calls that of an injured small prey, then you’d make distress calls that would lure in the predator that typically hunted that type of animal. You could use an injured rabbit call in order to lure in animals such as coyotes, wolves etc…
Most hunting stores will provide anyone who is wanting to hunt or learn the art of hunting with the supplies they’ll need. Depending on the terrain and time of year that you’ll be hunting in will depend on the type of camo you should choose. Along with clothing and scent masking choices, there are a ton of accessories to choose from that can help make the experience better. For those who enjoy hunting deer during the season many hunters choose to go with a deer tree stand which allows them to hunt from higher up, offers a better view of the area and to catch their prey easier than if they would be forced to hide lower down.
Each state has different rules and regulations when it comes to what you’re allowed to hunt and during what time of year. Depending on the animal you may also find that many states put special limits in place so animals aren’t over hunted. All states will require you to carry and purchase a hunting permit which is usually good for the year, but allows you to legally hunt in season animals.
