In both this thread and Dr. Ashby’s related thread, it would help to clarify terminology so that everyone is on the same page, to wit: Traditionally, “stalking” is short for “spot and stalk” and denotes the situation where we have spotted game from a distance and attempt to close on it into shooting range. Meanwhile, sneaking around hoping to spot game before it senses us and flees is traditionally called “still hunting.” I’ve never liked that term as it implies, well, stillness, as in sitting in ambush. So I always use the more descriptive term “sneak hunting.” None of which may matter to either of these threads if what we’re talking encompasses both situations. But I’m a word guy and can’t help myself. 8)
