Watch Your Back on Exit

Send by email Printer-friendly version Share this

When spot and stalk hunting, you can hang out on a ridge for hours glassing and not see a thing. When its time to exit your glassing spot, sometimes it helps to double back or go slowly when exiting. Deer and elk recognize when a threat is leaving an area and will sometimes use that time to break cover and move to a new location. Watching your back when exiting from or moving to your new spotting location may give you a slight advantage on your next hunt.

It is always a good idea to

It is always a good idea to circle around and take a last look just in case this is happening to you.  Just remember where the rocks and logs were.
