Hunting Techniques

Post by Skybreeze on Tue Apr 11, 2017 8:49 pm

Basic lessons/tips for mentors to teach
these are very basic lessons and are usually taught by mentors to their apprentices.

Hunter's crouch:
The body should be low to the ground, not all the way though. The tail should be sticking out, straight, not too high and not too low. The hind-legs should be bent and ready, as well as the front legs, so they will be fit to pounce/leap onto the prey.

Fishing:
When you are fishing, always make sure your reflection/shadow is kept away from the surface of the water. Once the fish swims by, you hook your paw in quickly and scoop it out. Quickly kill it with a swift bite since they can wiggle back into the water. This technique takes a lot of patience.

Squirrel hunting:
Usually, squirrels are a hard catch. They tend to run fast, and especially up trees to escape you. To catch one, if your determined enough, run it up all the way and make sure you block it from leaping onto another tree. Then it will run back down and you may resume your chasing. This technique might not always work, for squirrels are tricky to chase, especially up trees.

Bird hunting:
A younger apprentice will usually wait until they are older to learn this lesson. When a bird is grounded, it will possibly become aware it is being hunted by you and take off. You must learn to have a powerful pounce with your hind legs to leap up into the air, once there, you will bat your paws at the bird and bring it down. This technique may take a while to master for younger cats.

Mouse hunting:
When hunting a mouse, the cat should have the knowledge that mice have good ears. Their paw steps should be light and quiet, rather then heavy and careless. So the mouse does not feel the paw steps vibration in the ground, slide you paws instead of picking them up and marching over there. When sliding them, make sure no leaves are in the way, or they will alarm the mouse and cause it to run away.

Rabbit hunting:
There are two ways to hunt rabbits. The first way is if you are completely desperate to find something to eat.  You must find a rabbit hole and wait outside of it silently. When the head pops out, you will hook your paw in, just like when fishing, and hopefully get it out. This first way is highly discouraged to use, unless you are in need  for prey.
The second way is hunt rabbit is to never stalk it. Although stalking prey is an obvious way to catch them, for rabbits it completely different. Once spotting one, give into a chase. Only fast cats will catch them, this is why Windclan from the book series are the only ones who hunt them. ALWAYS REMEMBER TO HUNT A RABBIT WITH THE WIND BLOWING IN YOUR DIRECTION otherwise it will scent you right away!

Frog hunting:
When hunting a frog, it is most important to be very careful of where you step. Because  frogs are mostly found in marshes, it may be quite hard to catch one. You never stalk all the way up to a frog, because they can leap away in a blink of an eye. You must be in a hunter's crouch from a distance, and take a great leap to catch it. This technique is a bit tricky.

Dangerous bird hunting:
Unlike other birds, birds of prey can be dangerous and may even kill you/a cat. Hunting these is pretty uncommon for clan cats, although when desperate, follow these rules. It is important you hunt in groups, otherwise you cannot take it down alone. Since they hunt prey just like cats, they will land to catch a mouse or small rodent of some sort. When they land, you will then stalk the bird and pounce it. Each wing will need one cat to hold it down so it does not fly away and possibly carry one of you with it. Another will need to get onto its back to hold it down with your weight. The last one will bite the neck to finally settle the matter, while the others hold it down. Usually falcons and hawks are hunted, eagles, are probably to rare, and all in all to hard to take down.

Shrew and Vole hunting:
These are very simple, although you should remember one important rule when stalking and pouncing on a shrew/vole. Always keep it quick. Do not waste time stalking slowly, and make sure the killing bite is quick, otherwise the shrew/vole will make loud noises and scare off the rest of the prey around.
