It’s a very simple equation perhaps the most basic in all of bird hunting: The best concealed hunter – be it one who is hunting for fish, fowl or other animal – has the best chance of improving his/her kill ratio. That’s it. Staying concealed to your prey means having more time to prepare and less time for your prey to do the same. (Ideally, your prey should have no time to prepare at all.) That is why concealment is one of the hardest skills to master as a hunter and it is also why there is a whole industry that is devoted to keeping hunters hidden from their intended prey. Here are some tips to help you master the gentle art of concealment.
• Keep your face and hands covered: Wear face masks, face paint, and/or gloves when hunting water fowl in particular. Ducks can keenly sense movements, colors and patterns from the air.
• Match your clothing to the environment: Be very careful not to accidentally wear anything that would starkly contrast with the environment in which you will be hunting. For example, wear brown clothing in a dark, overcast surrounding otherwise your prey may be able to recognize you as a predator.
• Remain in the Shadows: Use natural shadows so that ducks will have difficulty distinguishing you from the dark background.
• Limit your movements: Always remember that ducks have an especially keen sense of peripheral vision due to the fact that their eyes are on the sides of their head. They can also quickly expand their field of vision simply by moving their head. Be conservative with your movements in order to increase your chances of surprising them at the just the right moment.
• Remember that camouflage does not equal concealment: Camouflage is just a smaller component to the art of remaining concealed. Therefore, you cannot simply buy expensive camouflage gear and expect that it alone will make you invisible to your prey.
