Glassing

As in all hunting, African hunting can be hours of boredom spiced by a few moments of adrenaline rush. Try to stay focused and alert through those hours of boredom! Professional hunters and trackers will probably be better at spotting game than their hunters (and should be!); they are used to spotting differences in color, texture, and light reflection between animals and their natural surroundings. However, after a few days in Africa most hunters improve rapidly. Always carry binoculars, and use them. You may well spot animals your hunting team has missed, but your success is best-served by participating fully in the hunt. Avoid daydreaming, and pay attention. After long periods of seeing little things can change very rapidly.
