Summer, is this the optimum time for hunting?
Animals congregating around water points, they need water, some regularly, others can consume enough through vegetation to last a few days, others need it to cool off like pigs!
The warmer weather is here, the daily temperature is to increase as we head to what is supposed to be one of the driest summers we have seen in a while!
For the hunter this brings us with the advantage of working around water points to find game.
Some might stake out a dam, spring or trough, others work the area around be it following game trails or walking up channels that lead to dams.
Checking out shady places where they might be camped up out of the heat of the day.
An experienced hunter will work all these areas, looking for that sign, be it a print or droppings.
Knowing the animal’s habits will add to your success and like anything the more effort you put in the more chance you are of finding them.
While some hunters are turned off by the heat, others relish the advantage of the hot weather in being successful in the summer heat!
