      Sometimes doing the right thing is the wrong thing to many, but once you become a felon by your hand or theirs, be the best you can be.

        Basically anything other than the shot. Picking the right spot for a hide, building said hide, choosing ingress/ egress routes etc.

            Proficient during the day using topo and compass/ GPS. Night time not so much. Would be a good area to start with.

              First thing you want to be able to do w/o issue is ID where you are at, using only map to ground (w/o using a GPS or compass). Next locate where the target is, then the best route to either intercept if on the move. Next is where do you want to shoot from, keeping in mind escape route, lighting, sun angle, weather, ect. You have to be able to read a map, an navigate day or night. Learn the day stuff first then you can move into night nav. Night nav is not all that hard to learn, once you keep a few things in mind.

              Are you in Indiana? If so where?

                Take up turkey hunting. You dont have shoot them, just hunt them so you dont have to worry about seasons and tags. But build a blind and call them in. Turkeys unlike most critters can distinguish colors. They have excellent eye sight. You fool turkeys you can fool people.

                As to night land nav. Learn the stars and there relationship to your area. I spent a lot of time in Western Alaska, there is zero terrain features and pace counts on skis suck so I learned to use the stars.

                Nothing new, people have been using the stars for navigation for thousands of years. Get a pocket watch and leave it set to zulu time, then with the sun and stars you can pretty much tell where you are. It takes practice of course.
