LocaCarnivore Hunting Tip: On The Third Day

We picked up this info gem from an Alaskan subsistence hunter.

If possible, hunt an area for at least three days in a row.  Most local game populations move along habitual trails in their territory on a schedule which brings them back to the same spot every 72 hours or so.  If you don't see them on day one, you have a 30 percent better chance they'll show on day two, and a near 100 percent chance on day three.  Timing during the day may vary due to many factors, but they should make an appearance.


The Three Day Rule works for migratory animals as well since they tend to move in small to medium-sized herds at intervals rather than as one super herd.  So, assuming they are still migrating, if you miss out on day one...wait.
