    Take it a step further and only use a compass. Use the GPS as a backup. Trust your instincts and you will be rewarded.

      Very good idea. The more you ACTUALLY KNOW where you are and how to navigate with just a compass and map, the less chance of you getting turned around or falling to the wayside should your GPS fail. Thanks for reading!

        Good article. I’m teaching my grandsons how to walk in the woods at night. We even have a plan to build a leanto this summer and spend the night in the woods alone. Teaching the little ones (8 & 10) the ways of the woods is very rewarding. Keep the tradition alive.

          Good on ya for bringing them up right! It’s sad to think about, but it seems that what we do becomes more of a lost art everyday. Keeping the tradition alive, like you stated, is more important than we know. Thank you for the kind words and good hunting to you.

    My late father used to tell me when I was a young kid just starting out hunting that it only takes a split second to shoot a deer but it’s the experience of being out in the woods and enjoying what nature has to offer that makes the hunting experience what it is. I was reminded of that while I was glassing a few deer not long ago overlooking a beautiful desert canyon. Good article.

      You’ve got it bud! The true “trophy” is the hunt and everything it entails, not the kill. Once you squeeze that trigger, you just bought your ticket home. It’s bittersweet when it happens. Thanks for the kind words man.
