The 3 top things hunters can do to improve our social licence.

One of the first things we need to establish to answer this question is, what is social licence?

Generally speaking, Social Licence has been defined as the ongoing approval or broad social acceptance of an activity.

This leads to the fact that Social Licence for an activity such as hunting must be earned and then maintained.

Basic Land Navigation.

Before any hunter heads off into the bush they should ensure they have the necessary skills and equipment. One such skill is basic land navigation.

In today’s day and age it could be easy to think I have a GPS (Global Positioning System) I’ll be right! But batteries run out, things break. A guy called Murphy once said if it can go wrong, it will go wrong.

So it’s important for a hunter to take a map and compass with them as a back up system. However a map and a compass will be of no help if you have no idea on how to use them.

The beauty of the bush.

I have recently traveled west of Brisbane out to St George then Cunnamulla before heading North all the way up to Karumba. Passing through many outback towns such as Charleville, Blackall, Barcaldine, Longreach, Winton and Normanton.

Three Hours without Shelter

I know many of you will be saying that this can’t be correct. I go out for more than 3 hours at a time and I don’t need a shelter to survive.

Once again, the rules of 3 are not an exact time period to measure your survival or death and are only a general guide to help focus on our priorities in a survival situation. Furthermore, the rules of 3’s are for survival situations and not everyday life; therefore, they are based on the worse case scenarios such as being dumped into freezing cold water drenching your clothing or somehow being stuck in the middle of the desert naked.

3 Minutes without air.

Building onto our series on the rule of 3’s, the next rule is 3 minutes without air.

Now I know that some people can hold their breath for a lot longer than three minutes, just as some of us have health conditions and need constant oxygen to stay alive. The rule of 3’s is not to give a definitive time frame of when you will die, but a helpful tool to help put your priorities in order. I think we can all agree we will live longer without a drink of water then if what we would if we were under water with no air.
