Look for Water Ripples

Send by email Printer-friendly version Share this

If you are hunting creatures that use the water, for example moose, or puddle ducks... look for ripples. Yes, ripples! If you actually see the animal, it can also see you, and it may be too late. But if you come around a bend, and look for and see the ripples - generated by what is ahead and still out of sight, you have "spotted" your animal before it can spot you.

The only time I'm around that

The only time I'm around that much water I'm fishing but I'm sure it would work. Of course it can and does work for the fish also.

I have actually spotted a few beaver and muskrats for this very reason that I would have never seen otherwise.

I guess that I'll need to

I guess that I'll need to quit hunting in the desert areas to try this trick but I can see where it would work
