If you are looking for a fun activity to do this year and feel the worth of your time, try out fishing. If you had fished before, we both agree you had been having a fun and precious time. Here are reasons why you would consider fishing compared to hunting.
The fishing ground is easy to find
Compared to hunting where you have to look for hunting grounds, any river, lake, pool, or dam with fish is a suitable fishing ground.
If you were to go hunting, you would have to look for a place with woods and actual animals to be hunted.
Fishing is simpler compared to hunting
If you want to catch fish, all you need to do is drop a hook and wait for it to shake, then pull out a fish. It also saves you time, especially on rivers with plenty of fish.
When we speak about hunting, you have to wait for quite some time to get a target. After identifying a target, you have to wait for the perfect time to get it into your arms. This consumes a lot of time and gets most of your muscles working.
Fishing is cheaper
If you compare a list of items you need to go fishing with a list of items you need to go hunting, fishing is quite cheaper. The advantage is they can also be reused as many times as possible compared to hunting.
Gaining a hunting permit is also more expensive, especially with uncommon species. The price could vary with rare species, such as Montana elk hunting regulations.
As for hunting, you have to get a permit for any type of animal you plan on hunting. Whether a deer, antelope, or a bear.
Anyone can go fishing
If you have toddlers and would like to carry them for fishing, it is easier and possible compared to taking them for hunting. Most fishing grounds allow children to participate, but the government will not allow you to carry toddlers into the woods for hunting.
If you are worried about equipment being too heavy for older people and children, there are different equipment, for example, modern and traditional that can suit the needs of the mentioned persons.
There are a variety of fishing methods
People have different methods of fishing other than using baits. It is more interesting to fish, especially with the traditional methods. Did you know if you sprinkle pepper powder in a dam, the fish get drunk and start floating on water? Bet you didn’t.
Try this out next time you go fishing. Different people have different methods of drugging fish. Pepper is however most recommended as it does not pollute the habitat and once it dissolves, the fish go back to their normal functioning.
In other places, people fish at night with the help of a lamp. The fish come to the water surface, trying to figure out where the light is coming from. This way, they are caught and taken home.
In conclusion, fishing is more relieving and hassle-free compared to hunting. You should try this out.
