    Re: How do you guys stay quiet in tall willows?

    rules i try to live by....never take more than 20 steps even on a road without doing a full stop look and listen....it is as low at 2 or 3 steps when things feel "right"...always have your gun at the ready.....if you are out of breath or sweating you are going too fast...if i accidentally make a loud crunch i sometimes will let out a call like a bull moose grunt or an elk call ....i cant prove if it helps or not but it is what i might do

    This reminds me of a joke:

    How does a Scottsman find a lost sheep in tall grass?

    I agree. Not the most fun, but in noisy conditions or thick brush, I have the most success on rainy days.

    Good time to use your calls to "mask" the noise you are making. Turkey calls, cow/calf calls etc do help to "fool" the animals you are stalking.

    Exactly^^^^^ moose aren’t completely quiet and if you mess up and make some noise/break a twig - just make a call to make it sound like a moose passing through. Look all the noise made when calling moose or rattling deer. Noise happens, work with it.

    For being quite on gravel roads on your feet, I have from time to time just used two pairs of cheap thick socks, no boots, super quite.

    Use airplanes, gust of wind, bugling elk, partner bugles etc to move in those difficult yards. Particularly when moving in a spot where u can’t avoid noise and the animal is close

    Looks like I was onto something. Best part is I don’t mind the rain.
