Perfecting The Ghillie Crawl

May 06, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 203

Ask anyone who uses ghillie suits on a regular basis, and they will tell you that it is important you learn how to crawl. The most experienced ghillie users are able to stay hidden even when they are moving. While it is hard to perfect such a skill, you will at least want to get an idea on what to do. A lot of what I will teach comes from personal experience in hunting scenarios. What I have learned is that animals are hard coded to detect threats through there three main senses. Sight, smell, and hearing. Move too quickly in the field, and you risk being spotted. Move to heavily, and you risk being heard. Well, you get my drift. If you arent careful, you will be exposed. Whether you are hiding from people, or animals.

Here are some helpful tips to maximize your crawling ability. Let's start a hypothetical scenario. You are laying in a field, and need to move 30 yards to get into proper position. Your target is in visible range, so you wont want to alarm it visually. Here is what you are going to do. Never move from side to side in relation to the target. Instead, you will want to move in a diagonal direction towards your position and the target. It is much easier to spot a target moving from side to side, rather than slowly moving towards you.

When you are making your move, motion in slow but smooth movements. Not only will you be harder to spot, but slower movements will minimize your noise output. The next part is vary obvious to say the least, but I do catch some people making this mistake. When moving through the field, take note in the direction you are traveling. Don't travel over the high ground, it will cast a silhouette. At the same rate, do not travel on the lowest part of the ground. Instead, travel in a middle ground. This will keep you hidden longer.

On the note of noise, make sure you take note to what you are crawling over. If you see branches, or dry vegetation ahead. Try to avoid it at all costs. A snapping bramch will give you away in a heart beat. The same goes for crawling over dead leafs. Now that you have absorbed this simple information, go out and practice. Scout your area, and try to plan out where you think you will want to hide. Imagine in your head where you will crawl, keeping within the middle ground, and minimizing noise output. If you are having issues with noise, consider getting a one set ghillie suit here. That suit is made for stalking in many ways.
