Are you one of the estimated 12.5 million Americans who hunts annually? Ar you bored of the game in your area and looking for both a better challenge in the form of big game hunts, and maybe even a nice hunting vacations at the same time? Then you should look into renting hunting ranches in New Mexico where you will have to ability to hunt bears, North American elk, mule deer, cougars, and much more. Here are a few more reasons to back up your equipment if you are not yet convinced.
1. Did you know that the state of New Mexico is considered one of the top states for North american elk and mule deer trophy hunting?
2. Because of the fact that black bears enter their dens to hibernate in the fall, the three to four months that they are hibernating after gaining about 30 pounds of body fat to last them through the winter are off limits for hunting. This means that hunting black bear during the colder months of the winter is not possible and other big game must be hunted instead.
3. North American elk are a ruminant animal, meaning that they possess a four chambered stomach like a cow. Though most people believe that ruminant animals have four separate stomachs, they in fact have one stomach which contains four separate chambers. The elk diet, which is very similar to other ruminant animals, consists of grasses, plants, leaves, and bark.
4. If you are hot on the trail of a piece of big game and it is coming close to the end of the day and you need to camp out but do not have all the supplies, fear not because nature can provide. In spite of the fact that turkey droppings are most often turned into fertilizer, can also be used as a fuel source. It is most often used in electric power plants, but it should not be too hard to adapt it for use for the night.
