Five percent of that number is reserved land for wildlife preserves and state and national forests. According to Enchanted Learning, the United States of America comprises 3.79 million square miles. If five percent of that is reserved, that means there are 189,500 miles for lovers of the outdoors to explore for fishing, hiking, and horseback riding.

Did you know that there are over several hundred recreation magazines in circulation? Recreation magazines can cover everything from hiking to cooking, and many activities besides. One popular topic for recreational magazines is hunting. Did you know that in 2012, there were nearly 140 thousand submitted applications for big game hunting in New Mexico? Hunting has stayed a popular recreation for Americans, and here are several hunting tips you might learn from a recreation magazine.

First, having a good experience hunting is often about good prep work. Hunting preparation takes on a lot of forms, depending on what it is you will be hunting, and for how long. If you are hunting elk, for example, you might want various elk calling whistles that can imitate the sound of elks who are looking for mates, warning others, et cetera.

You should also prepare your body for the exercursion of hunting, especially if you will be covering long distances with other hunters. Otherwise, you risk slowing down the entire group. If you do not practice exercising, you are also more likely to sustain an injury during your hunting adventure. Start working out and getting rid of extra pounds in order to be in your best hunting form.

Second, research your prey. Magazines are useful for this because they will often feature profiles on different animals, as well as tips from other hunters that you might not find in your average guide book. For example, elk move the most during the first hours of dawn, and during the end of the day around sunset. You should also know whether the animals you are hunting are sensitive to different smells. Some hunters abstain from using soap when they are hunting animals with a good sense of smell.

Third, recreation magazines will also warn you that the penalties against illegal hunting and poaching can be severe. Hunting is a fun recreational activity, but it should be a legal one. Most governments authorizing hunts do so after careful consideration of predator prey relationships, and with an understanding of what the environment and the hunted populations can handle. Do not ruin things for everyone by participating in illegal hunts.
