The Rules **
Precautions for hunting in remote country begin at home. **( 1 ) **Step onto a sheet of tinfoil to make an impression of the tread. This will help searchers isolate your tracks should the necessity arise. Leave the foil with friends, along with a note detailing where you will be hunting, when you expect to return, and when someone should call for help. ( 2 ) Dress in layers of breathable, insulating fabrics that retain warmth when wet, such as spun polyester underwear and wool, fleece, or pile vests and jackets. Add a shell to repel moisture. **( 3 ) Never enter the woods without a lightweight tarp for emergency shelter, fire-starting materials, and two compasses should one fail or be lost.** ( 4 )** Pack enough insulation to stay warm in case you can't keep a fire going.
