The number of living species that are found widely dispersed all over the world is near about 8. They are scattered all around from northern to southern hemisphere. Their distribution as well as dispersion all over the world is tracked as well as documented by the IUCN. Out of the 8 living species of bears 6 species are on the verge of extinction that too the brown bears. This is due to ruthless cutting down of trees as well as tremendous poaching all the other animals that are used earlier for hunting have become extinct or are on the verge of extinction. These innocent animals after being hunted are sold in the international markets for trading. The things made form them are quite expensive and are beneficial for improving the international trade.
The reason for which people prefer to hunt bears is the look they give. They are daring devil as well as ferocious from their look. The most difficult thing in hunting them is that they cannot be hunted with well planned strategies. This is due to the fact that they have got very good as well as sharp senses. When they sense the fear of hunting around them then they become conspicuous as well as nocturnal. They are normally found in those places where there are dense forests and this is the best area to trap them. They can be killed by being and not planned strategically. Bear hunting should be stopped to conserve the species of bears.
Bears are the most favourite animals used for the big games, they are most favoured as they look very dare devil and ferocious. It’s really hard to kill them strategically because they have got very sharp senses, for example the places in which they are hunted frequently, they become nocturnal. Basically they live in the places where there is dense forest and it’s easy to trap them. What the hunters do during the Bear Hunting is they look for the claw marks of the bears on the tree.
Bear Hunting is mainly done for their fur and hoof. The fur is of two types, the under fur acts as an insulator and the outer furs basically prevents the body from damages caused naturally such as dirt, insects etc and repels water as well. The fur of the polar bear is used for making clothing and withers garments.
The meat of the polar bear is a sort of staple diet for the Inuit, and it is supposed to be more symbolic than the art of culinary. The best part is its paw as well as thigh. The bear those ages near about 2 years, their meat is considered to be the best meat as they eat berries and all and less fish. The fat of the bears are used to cook as well as serve fuel for lamps. The bear fat that is converted to bear grease are often used for predicting weather. The gall bladder of the bears contain an acid named Urso-deoxycholic when dried to form crystals can work as miracle for rheumatism, it is also good for perfect eye sight and prevents gall bladder stone. Only the giant panda do not produce such useful juices.
Hunting injuries are on the rise this year. The economic downturn has led to more outdoors-men and women in search of inexpensive food and entertainment sources. Many of these hunters are skimping on important safety gear, including sturdy tree stands and brightly colored safety vests. This has led to an increase in both accident shooting deaths, as well as debilitating injuries often incurred from falling from tree stands. It is an unfortunate irony that many of these hunters are simply seeking out cheap meat to help their family through a trying economic time, only to find themselves severely injured and unable to work. It is vitally important that hunters actively protect themselves, other hunters and their families from potential tragedy.
- Store your (unloaded) firearm in a high quality, locked gun cabinet. Keep the key in a secret place, where children and burglars cannot find it.
- Every time you retrieve or store your gun, make sure you unload it. This should be the first thing you think of whenever you retrieve or store your firearm. You should always keep your firearm in your control, but also operate under the assumption that someone else may have loaded the gun.
- Always keep your firearm and hunting equipment in good condition. Clean and oil your gun after use and every so often while it is in storage.
- Always keep your firearm securely stored in a high quality case when transporting it. Do not load the firearm until you are actually hunting.
About New Zealand Tahr
The Himalayan Tahr, originally from the areas around Tibet, were introduced to the Southern Alps of the South Island of New Zealand around 1904 to 1906. Initially considered a pest, the New Zealand government controlled the Tahr herds with government sharpshooters and aircraft. Over the last twenty years, the Tahr hunting status has changed from being unwanted pests to a manageable, renewable and valuable resource to many local and overseas trophy hunters.
The Tahr is a majestic animal found on hillside rocky outcroppings with their long “lion like” mane blowing in the wind. This is truly a majestic sight. When put to chase, the Tahr hunter will be in awe of their climbing abilities in the steep New Zealand Alpines they call home.
The Himalayan Tahr is close relative to the free range mountain goat. A Tahr has relatively short legs and small head with large eyes and small pointed ears. Their hooves have a flexible, rubbery core that allows them to grip smooth rocks, while a hard sharp rim can lodge into small footholds. Tahr inhabits steep broken mountainous landscapes ranging from 3000′ to 8000′ above sea level. Males are much larger and have different coloration and horn structure than the females. Adult Himalayan Tahr can weigh from 300 to 400 pounds and stand 2½ to 3 feet tall. The nannies (females) only weigh 45-55 pounds. This is one of the largest “pair” ratio differences between any mammals in the world. Himalayan Tahr are herbivores, subsisting on tall alpine “tussock” grasses and shrubs. Himalayan Tahr can be found in herds from 2-25 animals and can live up to 14 years old in the wild.
