Walk Like An Animal

Trying to sneak through the woods in a silent and stealthy manner is difficult at best, especially since we only have two legs. Our cadence can be picked up as a danger signal by all animals. When you are walking your way through the woods try walking forward with an odd number of steps and then stop and then walk and stop etc. Listen to a 4 legged animal walking and this is the cadence they have. We may not be able to sneak like an animal but at least we can sound like one.

Definitely a great tip. I even do that on my way into a treestand and such.

By doing that, I've literally had animals come out the same trail I just came in on not 10 minutes before.

It works great.
