The other trick is to remember which direction will get you back to the road BEFORE you walk into the woods - especially important when you pull up to a new patch of woods grouse hunting.

i've hunted deer in the same woods for over 30 years. i usually also have a compass. i typically only ventured off to new ground with snow on the ground....i could tack my self back.

there is no way i can get really lost. there are enough trails i've grouse hunted back there one will usually end up on.

My dad and my grandpa (mom's side) taught me about hunting. My dad never had hunted before marrying my mom. So, his father-in-law trained him up and when I turned 12 years old, I began hunting with them. I have hunted that same area every year since (37 years).

I too have been out scouting, walking and hunting when I look down at the compass and it is telling me I should be going in the complete opposite direction but my mind is telling, it's this way.

One time I lost my compass and had to text my dad to honk the horn to make sure I was heading back to the truck after it had gotten dark. That was a little nerve racking...not enough cell signal to call but my text went through and he honk a couple times and it helped me get back quicker...I would have eventually came to a logging road and had a lot longer walk back to the truck.
