To Agnieszka Walczak, wildlife photographer from Poland, hunting is a great way to escape into nature, recharge, and forget about her everyday duties. Highly favoring stalking, she even manages to get out on a hunt before her official work day begins. To learn more about her other hunting preferences, find her favorites below.
That you can be a part of nature. Observe nature up close, see how it changes throughout the year, draw from its gifts, eat the healthiest meat, and rest in the bosom of nature. Hunting gives me a respite from everyday duties. I can recharge my batteries in the field.
Type of hunt: My favorite type of hunting is stalking. I think it’s more demanding. You need to know the area where you are hunting because, for example, the world looks a bit different when hunting at night, so knowing the terrain is essential. Besides, stalking is more interesting; there is a lot more going on, and you have to be very vigilant.
I don’t have a favorite location. Both hunting in the forest and in the fields provide a lot of emotions. Of course, I like hunting in my district the most because I know it perfectly, but sometimes it’s nice to go hunting with guests and change the area.
Time of the year: If we talk about the weather, I choose summer, because the day is warm and long and I have much more time to hunt. I can even go hunting before work. But autumn and winter is the full hunting season. We’ve got much more game species we can hunt for.
Animal to hunt: I love bird hunting. Especially pheasant and duck. This is a dynamic hunt. There is a lot going on, and you have to be very quick and accurate when taking a shot.
Every game is delicious. Whoever has tasted the game meat knows that it’s the best! My children love to eat wild boar chops, roe deer sausages or pheasant broth. But for me, the wild boar tenderloin is the most awesome!
Gear to use: When bird hunting, of course, I have a shotgun and ammo with me. Don’t need more. When hunting wild boar, deer, roe deer or fox, I always have (besides ammo, rifle, and binoculars) a shooting stick with me. You never know if the game will appear when you’re coming down from the tower.
Pulsar device: The Pulsar Merger LRF XP50. This device outclassed all the previous ones that I tested. My colleagues who hunted with me were also impressed by the image we see when looking through the Merger.
That I had a chance to meet all these awesome people. Pulsar ProStaff is not just a group of ambassadors. We are a family. I’m also very happy to have the opportunity to test the best devices on the market. We, ambassadors, have the chance to test them and our opinion really matters for Pulsar. That’s very important.
Way to practice: Visit the shooting range to practice my shooting skills and visit the hunting area as often as I can. First – you want your shot always to be accurate and the game to not suffer. About the second – I consider knowledge about your hunting area as the basic requirement.
To be smarter than the game. The game reacts to movement, smell, and rustling. You need to know when and where it appears in the hunting area, how to use the wind, what habits it has, and how to approach it so as not to scare it away. Man versus animal.
Media to get news about shooting/hunting: Nowadays, Instagram is a great source to get news about shooting and hunting. Almost every producer has an account on Instagram and publishes the news about their products on their profiles.
The Pulsar Merger LRF XP50 is my favorite device – it outclassed all the previous ones that I tested.
