Ahh, hunting. Big game hunts are an important part of Western culture. In New Mexico alone, there were nearly 140,000 applications submitted for big game hunts in 2012 alone. These can include everything from hunts for mule deer to hunts for elk, although elk are less common in New Mexico. There are all kinds of interesting ways to experience the great outdoors. In addition to all of the big game hunts, somewhere around 18 million people also go fly fishing every year.
Surprising as it might seem, the elk and the black bear do not have diets that are all that different. The elk’s four chamber stomach feeds on grasses and plants and bark, while the black bear feeds on shoots and leaves. The difference is that the black bear also eats insects and larvae. Guided mule deer hunts on hunting ranches are increasingly popular. Elk guided hunts are also popular.
Elk are majestic creatures. They have a method of calling known as bugling which can attract female elk. The stag with the loudest and most frequent call is the one that is most likely to attract the female. Hunting vacations can be a good idea for people in many different situations and big game hunts can move people from one situation to another without too much trouble.
It is for this reason that people will probably continue to go on big game hunts in the future. Big game hunts are not the only method that people will use to experience the great outdoors. A lot of people do not like hunting. Nonetheless, hunting can be a considerable amount of fun as well as a method for getting big game. Hunting is one of the oldest professions in human history and it is for this reason that people still like to get in touch with their roots.
