Sounds good Monte.

You hit on it, but it should be emphasized - learning to pinpoint a target, exactly, is paramount! That should be the first thing beginners practice. Otherwise they tend to start digging all around trying to find the target and make a big mess.

I believe everyone should have a pinpointer. For shallow targets, it can be used to find the exact center, by rubbing it in the area that you have pinpointed, so you can use the screwdriver technique.

I recall hunting in Golden Gate Park, in San Francisco once. There was this grassy knoll that I wanted to hunt. I parked across the street and started walking towards it. As a approached, I could see 8-10" circular yellow patches every few feet. I knew exactly what had happened - turned around and went somewhere else. It is that kind of "technique" that gets us banned from public areas.

Going back to the places we've hunted a few days or a week later will tell the tale. How did our methods hold up over time? What worked well? What didn't work so well? What failed?

It really depends on where you're hunting, the grass / turf consistancy, and recovery technique.

Yes, those tell-tale signs can bring on some frowns.
