I wanted to know what would be a good way to practice using fieldcraft and stalking for hunting and because I think it's enjoyable? I will get all camoed up at times and go in the woods and have my brother take a picture and have my family try to spot me in the photo. But being by myself what would be a good way to know if I'm making an obvious mistake or overlooking something given I can't see what I may be doing wrong to make myself stick out. Thanks, Darza.
If you have a dog, one thing I've heard of is to take your dog out in the woods and tie him to a tree, then leave him. If you can sneak back up to where you can see him before he knows you're there then your doing pretty good.
Sounds like a great idea. I'll have to give that a try.
Where are you located?
Just cammying up and wearing camouflage clothing is often not enough. Make use of the surrounding fauna as well place sprigs of leaves in the loops of a boonie hat and shove some into your vest and pockets. If you want to go all out, get a ghillie. I still have my issue Ghillie from Sniper School. It is well worn, but I can still make myself essentially invisible with it. Camouflage clothing and face paint will only go so far when it comes to breaking up your outline and help you blend into your surroundings.
