The Glorvigens team up in thick cover, often tamarack swamps where deer bed, and avoid the hunting hordes. Whitetails in heavy cover prefer to stay put; typically, they hunker down and hide from an approaching hunter, or circle back around rather than flee. In swampy areas, whitetails often haunt fingers of slightly higher ground that support balsams or other evergreens. The brothers slowly work their way into the wind through the conifers. The lead hunter penetrates the cover, while his partner trails 20 to 30 yards behind and off to one side along the fringe of the trees. The two stay close enough to see each other and communicate with hand signals. Patting a fist, for example, means I see a doe.
