Do you hunt evenings? I know I'd rather hunt them during archery season, most of us do. What if you hit a deer and you have to trail it for a ways? say you're alone with no one close by to help. Whats your best way of finding your way back to your vehicle? Sometimes you may have to travel a ways and unless you have and use a GPS to find your way back, and sometimes you cant get cell phone signal because the mountains block that. try this for a simple cure.
I carry a box or 2 of the reflective tacks in my back pack.I simply stick one in a tree while tracking so that they're facing me on the way out and I pull them as I go on the way back to my truck. Easy to find your way back after dark. I've had times when I thought about leaving the trail and coming back the next morning but where I am there's to many coyotes and bears that would love an easy meal. What method do you use to accomplish this chore? How far would you travel before giving up for the night.
