Type of hunt

The hide hunt is carried out by one hunter alone or as a so-called collective / community hunt by several hunters together. Unlike driven hunts , such as the driven hunt , the game will not be driven towards protecting drivers or dogs. Lurking in stand-up hunting offers the hunter the advantage that appearing game usually acts comparatively calmly and familiarly, which makes it easier to identify and assess (hunter-speak: speaking ) the game and enables comparatively accurate shots. The selection of suitable hiding places requires a good knowledge of game movements , dwellings , feeding areas, wind conditions and the space-time behavior of game.

Intensive high-seat hunting can generate high hunting pressure, which prompts the game to avoid the area in question and can be used in the context of focus hunting for targeted deterrence of game from a certain area, for example in order to avoid game damage . If used improperly, the hunting pressure generated by continuous high-seat hunting can also intensify undesirable avoidance strategies, such as night activity and fear of humans.

Raising facilities

At particularly suitable places, such as frequently used animal crossing , forest edges or Kirrungen , various forms will be happy from residence facilities (such. As hunting umbrellas , Ansitz ladders, climbing blind or a pulpit) placed. Depending on the design, seats can fulfill various functions: seats with blinds on their sides can provide optical camouflage, covered seats can provide protection from wind and weather to the hunter who remains underneath, raised seats can ensure a better overview and a safer bullet trap when a shot is fired. In addition to optical camouflage, particularly high hides can also have an odor-camouflaging effect by keeping the body odor of the hunter for the game "out of the wind."
