Module 08 - HUNTING PREPARATION
Staking out a new hunting territory is an adventure! Just make sure to map out the new area carefully and be careful not to trespass on private property. You’ll also need to respect the turf of other hunters. A crowd in a hunting area is an unwelcome nuisance (more people = less game animals) and any trespassers caught hunting on private property will be even less welcome.
Remember that not everyone enjoys hunting or supports the sport. This is why you must only hunt in areas where your activities will not conflict with other people's enjoyment of the outdoors. If the area you’re looking at is known to be a popular spot for hikers and bird-watching, it’s going to be a bad choice.
