Hunting Along the New Border Wall
If you are one of the handful of people who routinely call coyotes across the southern border and waylay them on the U.S. side, you will now have to consider the new border wall.
Know Your Location
While it may sound humorous, hunting along the border is a serious concern to the U.S. Customers and Border Protection. So much so, that they have a link detailing what you need to do while trailing a wounded animal that crosses the border into Mexico. In the excitement of the moment you may simply go after the animal without realizing you are crossing onto foreign soil and likely with a firearm.
The following are a few safety tips for predator hunting along the new border wall:
Hunt with a Partner
The camaraderie of having a hunting partner adds to the fun. While safety concerns are always paramount, they are multiplied when hunting with others.
It’s imperative to always know where your partner is when hunting together. Most predator hunters set up side by side or back to back. Therefore, it is easy to whisper and fun to share the hunt. This is the safest way to hunt with a partner.
Develop Detailed Communication
Having effective communication with your hunting partner will increase your success and your safety. Make verbal directions specific. Therefore, there’s nothing left to question. If questions arise, the time to ask is when you are together. This way you will not be pondering what your hunting responsibilities are as you sit separated from your buddy.
The majority of hunters use maps of hunting spots and label information such as prevailing winds and set up positions. You can even take it a step further by adding spotlight scanning zones and designate areas that each hunter is allowed to shoot.
