Although you may think that hunting isn’t sport, it is! Hunters are always competing who will kill the biggest animal! The similar situation as in fishing. This sport is extremely popular in countries and villages that are very close to the forests! There, many generations were hunting and they will continue hunting!
As you probably know, the first thing you will need is a weapon. You can choose literally thousands of weapons! Maybe you like pistols, and you would like to hunt using them, but it is impossible. Pistols and revolvers aren’t hunting weapon. They have low accuracy and small bullet caliber, which isn’t enough for killing an animal. On the other side, rifles are the best! Every rifle is good for hunting. You must choose the right ammunition for the animal you are hunting.
For example, is you are hunting ducks, you must use smaller caliber bullets, and when you are hunting wild boars, you will need bullets with big calibers! Of, course, rifle without optics isn’t very useful! So, I recommend fitting an optics to your weapon. Even then, if it isn’t properly set, it wouldn’t be useful, so go to the professional and be sure that everything will work properly.
After a weapon, dogs are something you must have. You can go hunting without them, but you will lost awful lot time searching for animals. And, if you are not a professional tracker, there is no way of finding animals! Dogs will find them and can start chasing them, so you will have an opportunity to shoot! Unless you are hunting bears, then dogs aren’t very useful!
