TOP-8 suits for hunting, tourism and fishing

Comfort is the first thing that really matters when it comes to a trip to nature. Both an experienced and a novice hunter, fisherman or tourist understand that a suit in which quality characteristics meet all requirements is vital. You have to choose equipment either according to the reviews of friends and colleagues, or according to the price itself, or according to external data and various interesting additions from the manufacturer. However, there are objective indicators, combining which you can get exactly what is required. Let's start by learning how to navigate them.

There are several characteristics, based on which you can choose exactly what you need.

Wind, precipitation, frost - the suit should be such that it would be comfortable in unfavorable conditions. The upper is often made from taffeta, oxford or taslan, i.e. polyester fabrics. Many manufacturers improve the characteristics of this material with impregnations or spray polyurethane. The fabric copes with a number of problems, however, disadvantages appear in use, for example, it does not pass air very well, is not very comfortable and can accumulate static electricity.

Some synthetic materials rustle, which is not very suitable for hunting at close range.

In Russian realities, membrane tissue has shown itself better. It is windproof and waterproof, you can walk in it almost silently, and your skin can breathe.

The essence of such a material is in two layers - a special inner coating and polyester outside. A fabric mesh is used for strengthening. It turns out that moisture does not penetrate from the outside, the wind does not blow, but sweat is removed.

Another nuance, of course, is the color, because the hunter must remain invisible. But in this case, everyone still relies on personal ideas.

If a suit is purchased for the winter or spring-autumn period, then it must be insulated. Previously, all suits were insulated with sheepskin or batting, which were essentially heavy materials. Synthetics are used today, but there are many materials, and each one differs in characteristics.

Suits for transitional seasons are complemented by linings or additional jackets, which are made of fleece - this material is light, soft to the touch and very warm.

Winter suits are most often insulated with padding polyester, but for a thing to be really warm, at least a triple layer is required. This, unfortunately, affects the volume and wearing comfort.

There are new generation heaters, for example, firemax, holofiber, holofan. Their advantages are a much better ability to retain heat, water-repellent properties, and the disadvantages include a higher cost.

Thinsulate is considered one of the best materials. Even a thin layer of it will help to survive severe frost, and the suit will not become uncomfortable in terms of weight or bulk.

The total area of ​​Germany is 108.3 thousand km2, of which 94% is occupied by hunting grounds. A significant part of the republic is lowlands and hilly areas. In the north, the height above sea level is about 50 m, in the south it reaches 200 m, gradually passing into the medium-altitude mountains: the Thuringian Forest, the Ore Mountains, the Harz.

Germany has a temperate climate. Summers are quite cool and winters are relatively warm. In the mountains, the climate is somewhat more severe. The snow cover lasts 1-2 months. The average temperature in January is from + 1 ° to -1 °, and in July from 16 to 20 °. Precipitation falls fairly evenly throughout the year. Their number ranges from 600 to 800 mm. In the mountains, they increase to 1000-1200 mm. Mild winters and warm summers favor the development of woody and grassy vegetation, which in turn provides the animal world with food.

German Game Management

Forests occupy 27.3% of the area, and arable land - 46%. The distribution of forests is extremely uneven. In some areas the forest cover is over 60% (Thuringia), while in others it is only 4-8% (Halle, Dessau). The number of tree species is relatively small, forests are mainly composed of four tree species. Pine occupies 50.5% of the area, spruce 25.5%, beech 11.6%, oak 5.8% and other deciduous (birch, alder, aspen) 6.6%. The composition is dominated by pure stands. There are quite a lot of meadows and glades in the forest, which occupy about 5% of the forest fund, which is very important for hunting. The age distribution of forests is presented in table. 10.

This age distribution favors the life of ungulates. Coniferous forests have more forage in young stands, they occupy one third of the area, and deciduous forests have better conditions in young and mature forests, which account for 64%.

More than 50% of forests are created by plantations. Due to the fact that for many decades clear felling was carried out in small areas, the forest consists of small areas (2-5 hectares). The boundaries of the sites are clearly marked and are often defined by clearings, roads, and cleared paths.

The average size of the quarters is 30 hectares. The quarters are separated by clearings, roads, high-voltage highways, railway lines and water lines. In mountain forests, quarters are identified by watersheds. In flat terrain, almost all clearings can be driven by car. Such a division of the forest into quarters and forest plots within them create excellent conditions for carrying out hunting operations, including for accounting for game and organizing hunting.

The ban on grazing and haymaking in the forest is of great positive importance for forestry and hunting. For this purpose, special areas of meadows are allocated, which are usually fenced. All agricultural areas, arable lands, mows, pastures for hunting are included in the scope of forestry activities and all game is at the disposal of the latter together with the hunters' societies. The leshoz is responsible for the damage to the fields by wild animals and pays for losses, the amount of which is determined by special commissions. This obliges the forestry to establish the density of the game both in the forest and in the field at a level at which the damage to the fields would be minimal.

The agricultural land is inhabited by the so-called small game - brown hares, pheasants and gray partridges. Their population density depends on the predominance of agricultural crops and the local microclimate. In accordance with this, the land grading is carried out.

The high level of forestry and large reserves of hunting fauna are combined with a high population density, a dense network of roads and active use of land for its intended purpose. In Germany, with 17 million inhabitants, the population density is on average 250 people per 1 km2 (from 93 to 327), railways and highways are 6.2 km per 1 km2, and the intensity of agriculture requires a significant use of chemical fertilizers and pesticides. However, despite these negative factors affecting the hunting fauna, strict discipline based on a correct understanding of the use of natural resources, on the observance of the public interest, and a number of organized activities ensure good hunting management.

Forestry in Germany is carried out taking into account the physical and geographical conditions: soil, vegetation, altitude, temperature by seasons and even by months, the amount of precipitation, including the height and duration of snow cover, etc. e. Depending on these factors, the main types of hunting fauna, population density and game care measures are determined.

By the Law on the Regulation of Hunting, adopted in 1953, the management and management of hunting is entrusted to the forestry management bodies in agreement with the hunting inspectorates available at the regional and district executive committees of civil authorities. The highest hunting authority in Germany is the State Forestry Committee. One of the deputies of the committee is in charge of hunting and nature protection, he has several assistants (two - three). The responsibility of the State Forestry Committee includes the publication of guidelines and control over the implementation of all provisions on hunting, protection of the interests of the hunting industry when approving state and financial plans, the distribution of financial and material resources between state forestry enterprises in the field. It determines the timing of hunting and the types of animals to be shot or protected. There is a working group under the State Forestry Committee, whose responsibility is to coordinate the issues of hunting with ornithologists, zoologists, biologists, veterinarians and other specialists who are part of this group.

Comfort is the first thing that really matters when it comes to going outdoors. Both an experienced and a novice hunter, fisherman or tourist understand that a suit in which quality characteristics meet all requirements is vital. You have to choose equipment either according to the reviews of friends and colleagues, or according to the price itself, or according to external data and various interesting additions from the manufacturer.

How to find a reliable suit: key features

There are several characteristics, based on which you can choose exactly what you need.

Fabric

Wind, precipitation, frost - the suit should be such that it would be comfortable in unfavorable conditions. The upper is often made from taffeta, oxford or taslan, i.e. polyester fabrics. Many manufacturers improve the characteristics of this material with impregnations or spray polyurethane. The fabric copes with a number of problems, however, disadvantages appear in use, for example, it does not pass air very well, is not very comfortable and can accumulate static electricity.

Some synthetic materials rustle, which is not very suitable for hunting at close range.

In Russian realities, membrane tissue has shown itself better. It is windproof and waterproof, you can walk in it almost silently, and your skin can breathe.

The essence of such a material is in two layers - a special inner coating and polyester outside. A fabric mesh is used for strengthening. It turns out that moisture does not penetrate from the outside, the wind does not blow, but sweat is removed.

Another nuance, of course, is the color, because the hunter must remain invisible. But in this case, everyone still relies on personal ideas.

Insulation

For the delivery (and removal) of the hunter, equipment and equipment to the hunting area, as well as for other work, land, water and air transport is used. Air transport for hunting, primarily a helicopter, is a versatile mode of transport capable of delivering (and removing) cargo in a short time and anywhere. However, its rent is extremely high, occupies a high share in the cost of hunting products. The use of an aircraft is several times cheaper, but it is limited by the length of the runway, so its relatively widespread use is possible only in the tundra and forest-tundra zones. In the taiga zone, rivers and lakes are sometimes used as a runway if they are located close to hunting bases, and aircraft are converted to operate in the hydro mode (floats).

The cheapest transport for hunting is water transport, although its use is limited by the season of the year, the navigability of the river. Due to the rapids and shallow waters, many rivers cannot be passed even by motor boat. Modern inflatable motor boats with a carrying capacity of up to 1 ton are rarely used. With such a significant carrying capacity, they have a low own weight, only a few tens of kilograms. One hunter is able to overload and drag such a boat over the rapids in a short time, without using any devices. But the use of inflatable motor boats is limited by their low strength (short service life) and high cost; in addition, they are extremely rare on the market.

Watercraft for hunting are mainly motor boats (metal and wood); the most widely used are motorboats. Fishing farms have self-propelled barges, tug boats, non-self-propelled pontoons.

The system of machines specifically for hunting and commercial operations has not yet been developed; most often used as a basic system is a complex of transport and other means of mechanization most appropriate to the field situation.

Land transport on the hunt

Wheeled, caterpillar, specialized (snowmobiles) are used in hunting.

The cheapest wheeled transport used when there are roads. In the hunting sector, off-road vehicles are often used. However, its capabilities are limited by the absence of even the simplest roads in the hunting grounds, and by a large snow cover. Tracked transport is much higher in cross-country ability, but its use is limited to waterlogged soils, rivers and the absence of crossings. Due to the low speed, the mobility of the all-terrain vehicle is reduced. The range of use of this type of equipment expands significantly in the second half of winter, with freezing of the soil, significant thickening of ice on rivers and lakes.

At short distances, light snowmobiles are used, given their insignificant autonomous course, low carrying capacity. For their successful application, a preliminary transfer of the FCM to the hunting area is necessary, so as not to carry a supply of fuel with you on each voyage. This is a universal hunting vehicle that does not require special roads, because of the low specific pressure, even thin ice can withstand it. Limited motor resources, high cost of use do not restrain the use of individual snowmobiles in field conditions. Individual operation, autonomy, a wide range of use make the snowmobile the most suitable for the northern fishing regions of the country.

Russia has a huge number of hunting grounds, rich in a wide variety of animals, from small birds to large animals. And although hunting has long ceased to be a necessity and has become rather a hobby, many still have a respectful attitude towards such a hobby.

The modern hunter seeks unity with nature and pleasure from the process, combined with the opportunity to get a dose of adrenaline and a memorable trophy.

Glukhary, Ryabchiki and Tetherieva are so relaxed and losing the vigilance that we walk with forest roads and paths in search of pebbles. Literally a few meters from the camp can be stumbled upon a boar or wolverine. It is worth it, however, remember that in each area at a certain time, the hunt season is open only to one or another game. Do not turn into poachers hunters!
