Coyotes Hunting

coyoteCoyotes use both their nose and eyes to hunt. The cottontail is the coyote’s main meal and they eat more fruit than other canines. You can use either a .222 center fire or a .22 bolt action varmint gun for these animals.

The canine is so sharp eyed he can spot the slightest movement from a great distance and will change direction at the slightest hint of change in his territory. Also they are vocal, often responding to a family member.


Crappie- Springtime

Crappie-SpringtimeAn ultra-light rig, bobber and a jig tipped with a perch minnow hooked under the dorsal fin will bring crappie to the net. Where do we fish? Look for the locals on any body of water and they will be anchored over Crappie heaven.

An angler lobs his baited jig next to a submerged rock near the outside of a weedline. The bobber disappears, Tom sets the hook and a one pound Crappie dances at the end of his line. Time to bait the hook again. Two dozen minnows are not to many for four hours of Spring Crappie angling. My partner Tom and I do this every spring at Chautauqua Lake with my fishing club.

Adventure Transportation

peru tourismTo join two localities in the bush of the Republic of Peru, the author had to ride on a truck carrying people and goods. Poor road conditions and bad weather made the trip a bit difficult. This allowed him to meet interesting aspects of people and geography.

In the village of Mazuko, in the jungle of the Republic of Peru, watched the water falling warning that the rains had begun. This complicated my plans to reach the city of Puerto Maldonado Peru also. While the hundred miles that separated me from my destiny did not seem significant, the state they were in were. For hours I waited for a truck, almost the only means of transport between the towns named, no luck.


The team of adventure and survival

adventure-team“Knowledge about equipment that can be used in situations of survival , as well as in various outdoor activities is fundamental not only to get the most out of it, but that in case of emergency or exceptional until we can reproduce these tools through improvisation .

The issue is obviously extensive and variable, since the constant emergence of new technologies makes it must take into account new features and possibilities.

The equipment can be purchased in many shops in the industry, or through the Internet . There are a variety of products available, and many are reasonably priced. Today it seems that with the advancement of mass communication and dissemination of outdoor activities, we have more equipment than ever.

The selection process of members in groups of adventure

Although it is always interesting to engage as many people in clubs, associations and groups engaged in outdoor activities, the selection of candidates is a necessity.

Never finished know ourselves, so it is impossible to predict in all cases how we will behave in the future, particularly in completely new situations, difficult, risky or extreme. In other words, how we behave in front of a survival situation? The question can not be answered in all cases and this is a problem for the leader of any group engaged in outdoor activities, it can have no certainty that the people under their responsibility will react properly in such cases . For mountain guides, tours, etc.. this is part of the job because rarely could or should select participants for their trips if they depend on such work to live. That is, rarely reject a client or restrictions will be imposed unless there are laws or regulations in this regard. But in other cases it is possible to take some action.


The risk of getting wet outdoor

outdoorAs happens with the snow, the water falling from the sky can be a blessing or a curse for someone who is conducting an outdoor activity. In some specific cases, however, there is no doubt that getting wet in nature is a risk that must be avoided.

You can not compare an outing or excursion of a few hours away from the city or the place where we leave our vehicle, ie, dry clothing, shelter and health care, that an excursion or expedition for several days or even weeks, where the warm, dry clothing and medical care are somewhat distant and inaccessible for a long period of time.

Concentrate Impacts in High-Use Areas

backcountry-hikingConcentrating use in popular or high-use areas is a simple and effective method to reduce the impact of a backcountry visit. Main travel corridors and popular destinations usually have well-established trails and campsites. Continued use causes little additional impact to these features although overcrowding diminishes the overall experience for some.

Respect other visitors’ need for solitude. When traveling in the backcountry, care is required to minimize disturbance of other visitors. The feeling of solitude is enhanced when contacts are infrequent, party size is small and behavior is unobtrusive.

Wildland Ethics – Spread Use and Impact in Pristine Areas

hiking groupPristine areas are typically remote, seldom visited and have few obvious impacts. Visit pristine areas only if you are committed to and knowledgeable in the techniques required to Leave No Trace in that particular area. Rocky places with shallow soils, sandy areas, low heath balds, cliffs, bogs and wetlands often harbor residual populations of endangered plants and animals in the Southeast. Avoid travel through these areas altogether.

Hike in small groups. The impacts associated with cross country travel are minimized when group size is small, routes are carefully selected to avoid fragile terrain and critical wildlife habitat, and special care is taken to avoid disturbance. If you are traveling with a large group, hike in groups of no more than 4-6 people.
