Big Game Hunting

Bear hunting is very dangerous of the size and characteristic of the game (which of course is the bear). Bears have excellent hearing and smelling senses. Not to mention its five long, sharp, non retractable claws which can rip big game hunters flesh apart. An average sized bear can run up to fifty miles per hour. You can only imagine what it feels like when you suddenly see a bear charging towards you. However, like other types of big game hunting, bear hunting is strictly regulated and maintained by some State Law.
Another type of big game hunting is the big cat hunting. Big cat hunting refers to the hunting of large wild members of the Felidae family or the wild felines. Big cat hunting’s main targets are large felids, which can weigh up to several hundred pounds. Panthers, lions, tigers, leopards and jaguars are examples of big cats for hunting.
Another type of big game hunting is the elephant hunting. This kind of hunting is prohibited in almost all parts of the globe that have elephants. The elephant is now one of the endangered species because of the ivory trade. The tusks of the elephant are made up of hard, white, opaque substance known as ivory. Ivory is used as ornamentals or sometimes for medicine purposes.
The most popular of all big game hunting is moose hunting (in North America) or elk hunting (in Europe). Moose hunting is very popular not only for its meat, but for its antlers as well. Moose hunting season usually begins during the fall season because it is the mating season for moose. Most moose hunters prefer to hunt male moose for their antlers. And also, male moose (or bulls) get easily swayed by moose calls made by moose hunters.
