    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    V. Hunting: Things Useful to Know
    This Information is taken straight from the game.
    
    A.Expert Tips
    
    -In Caree Hunt, if you are having trouble finding animals with high scores,
    try changing the season. Many animals have different weights depending on 
    the time of year.
    -Always approach animals with the wind to your face to keep both your sounds
    and scents away from them.
    -Keep behind cover, and move slowly when in sight of animals. Freeze as soon
    as you spot one looking at you.
    -Animals rarely distinguish colors, so they rely on movement to detect
    threats.
    -Approach as mutch as you can for a clean kill, but keep in mind the 
    possibility of a charge.
    
    B.Hunting Regulations
    
    -Game mamals may only be hunted one half hour before sunrise and one half 
    hour after sunset.
    -You must have a valid tag for any game animal you are hunting, and cannot 
    exceed the bag limits for any of your tags.
    -You may not shoot any non-game animals. If you shoot and wound an animal, 
    you must track and find the animal.
    -you are not allowed to use firearms nearby lodges and buildings.
