Tips For Hunting Small Zombies

While zombie hunting is becoming more and more accepted among hunting professionals due in part to the fact that it offers a real thrill when you track them in the wilderness. It is well-known that fresh young “healthy” zombies are faster, quicker, maybe even smarter creatures so you have to have a quick hand and mind to catch these clever little bitters; here are some tips that will come in handy in the nick of time:

Tip No.1 : The first thing you should do is try to remove your scent. Make sure that you are odorless because young zombies have a very sensitive nose and they will sense you from a respectable distance if you fail in removing your odor.

Tip No.2 : Be careful when you choose your gun, this is one of the most important tips you should take into consideration. Many experienced hunters use the Mini Bolt.22 or the Big Boy Special Editions, or a semi-automatic in more infested territory it depends on what the hunter prefers for main and backup weapons.

Tip No.3 : Choose the proper camouflage pattern for the nature conditions in which you will do your hunting. No matter what type of pattern you will choose it is highly advisable to stay near trees or bushes so that your chances of being spotted will be as low as possible and to help protect your back and neck.

Tip No.4 : Moaning calls can be very efficient if you do it the right way. Regardless of how you choose to moan, be sure not to make the mistake that most hunters make: moaning too loud. You must keep it at a medium level, never exaggerate. Don’t forget to give the zombies time to respond to your call, with other words, be patient.

Tip No.5 : It involves movement. You must do everything that you can to keep your movement at a minimum level. The young zombie is a very perceptive creature and will surely become aware of you before you observe him, so try to stand still most of the time.

Tip No.6 : Decoys or bait can improve your efficiency if you use them the right way. You could use a hunting student as a decoy or flusher or bait as well as others, the choice is up to you. Decoys are good because they take the attention away from the hunter and on to the decoy thus improving your chances for a more efficient shot.

Tip No.7 : One of the newest trends in zombie hunting is using dogs. Choosing the proper dog can be a real problem. Some say that the American Stag hound is the best choice, some say that the Plott Hound is the most efficient, it all depends on the dogs because not all dogs are the same; it depends on the breed, the way that they were trained and others as well.  Depending on the zombie plague it may or may not pass to animals, if so even a nip could mean the end of a favored dog.

Tip No.8 : Zombie hunting during the night can be more exciting but it is also quite dangerous. There are a couple of things that you should be aware of before hunting during the night : your vision is limited during the night and due to this fact the zombies can’t be spotted as easily as they can be during the day; the wind is usually lower during the night; the shot is harder because you won’t be able to observe the target entirely. During the night you should: anticipate your shot, watch the back side as well as the wind, use your tactical flashlight and available moon light properly.

If your shot knocks down a zombie at dusk or at night, leave it lie until dawn. Attempting to confirm the “kill” when you can’t properly see what the limbs might be doing can result in a surprise grab and bite. Keep in mind these things aren’t really dead until they are double tap dead.

I hope these tips will come in handy when you are out in the wilderness hunting zombies of all sizes. Be careful to use the proper equipment ( moans, decoys, rifles ) as well as the best trained hunting dogs for zombie hunts because as you all know, zombies are known to attack when you least expect it.
