Guesstimate Animal Patterns
Last fall, I picked up a cheap, leftover tag for deer in a zone with the lowest hunter success rate in California. Before driving up, I spent 20 minutes on Google Earth determining locations of water sources, grazing, daytime cover, and natural funnels, then dropped a pin on where I thought my best odds of success lay. The next morning, I snuck toward that pin carrying my bow—and found a herd standing right were I predicted they’d be. If that pin had been real, it’d have done the job for me, but I did it with an arrow through the lungs half an hour into my first-ever visit to that area.
