Way of The Hunter Tracking Guide

Walk, Don’t Run

Binoculars are Key

Another obvious one, but remember, your basic line of sight will not always pick up on targets. Having the binoculars handy and becoming quick with it is key to tracking.

It’s also better to use them then your scope on your rifle, Save that for the kill shot.

Use Rifles

Shotguns might feel better and pack a punch, but rifles will be quieter and more precise. For that reason alone, we much prefer them over shotguns.

And who the hell hunts with a shotgun, anyway?

Follow Blood Trails (and Blood Analysis)

When you shoot an animal and it lives, it leaves behind a blood trail. This trail can then be analyzed and followed to ensure a kill shot.

And remember, aim at the heart, not the head for one shot kills with minimal damage to pelt.

Vantage Points are Everything

Do yourself a favor and always try to track and hunt from a vantage point. They are fairly easy to find, and they make the job much easier, as you always have the height advantage.

They also a great places to hide safely from the more dangerous predators hunting you while you hunt them.

If you properly utilize the above guide, you will be a master hunter sooner than you think.
