Hunters use stalking to follow fresh game or animal signs, or they have seen game in the distance. These signs include fresh tracks in the dirt or leaves, scat and/or rub lines along a known game trail. If a hunter spots game animals in the distance, the stalking technique helps him or her to move closer and set up for a safe shot. Stalking uses the same approach as still hunting; the hunter moves very slowly, faces the wind and is mindful of footing to avoid breaking twigs or slipping.
