Stalking[edit]

The six secrets of successful stalking:

Move Quietly[edit]

Learn to "freeze" and keep 100% still.

Break up your outline[edit]

Study your background and dress to blend in to the background.

Avoid the skyline[edit]

Take off your watch and other shiny articles that reflect the sun and the moon.

Look around not over rocks - look through bushes[edit]

Do not form a silhouette.

Exploit the shadows[edit]

Shadows conceal and break up your outlines.

Avoid water[edit]

Your reflection may betray you!
