Lost in the big woods ?
Current posts on red flag tape and 2 way radio conversations, got me to chuckle internally and thought I would post this
I have to admit over the years, I have been lost. I can see why the experts tell you not to panic, because it sets in pretty dang quick, and ya start walking faster and in bigger circles making matters worse. (first embarrassment, than fear of getting back very late, than fear of having to walk many miles to hit any road or worse yet, spend the night) I will admit, I donít have the internal GPS that some of you fine people do, and love the fact that I now know the woods I now hunt for many years, without fear of going the wrong direction, but what a few hours of roaming after a dayís hunt, can do to the heart. I can honestly tell you I know of two individuals that knew I was wandering aimlessly years ago, and were more than happy to point me in the correct direction. (which, I had no clue and what a welcomed sight to see humans) I seem to get turned around so darn quick at times, it makes me laugh. I never got lost or disoriented for more than a few hours, but the few hours can seem like a loooonnnnggg time until you see familiar surroundings. My brother, I swear can be blind folded, spun around a dozen times in a area he never set foot in before, and walk a straight line to the truck one mile away, so possibly I got the bad genes on navigation. OK, So now I hunt Potter County, (with my GPS)
Was wondering if anyone else had those dark days of wandering (or, would admit it)
