• Organic Prepper

Small game hunting can be a fun and challenging way to get outdoors and enjoy some time in nature. In order to be successful, however, there are a few things that you need to keep in mind. Whether you're targeting hares, squirrels, or other small prey, certain techniques will help you bag your limit.

Here are some tips and tricks for successful small game hunting.

Be aware of the regulations in your area.

First, check with your state or provincial wildlife agency to make sure you are familiar with the small game hunting regulations. Each state/province has different rules and regulations regarding which species of animals can be hunted, what equipment is allowed, and when the season is open. Familiarizing yourself with these regulations will help ensure a safe and legal hunt.

Ensure you have the right hunting equipment.

One of the most important aspects of small game hunting is having the right equipment. If you don't have the proper gear, you'll likely find yourself frustrated and unsuccessful. For instance, if you're an air bow hunting enthusiast, you'll need a quality airbow and airbow arrows. For rifle hunting, you'll need a good scope and a rifle that's comfortable for you to use with the correct ammunition.
