When i hit a WMA for first time. While at house got out my TOPO USA CD, took out book with map of area. Looked for creeks, streams, & terrain, put pin marks with cordinance on area looked good, did several areas, incase other hunters. Made copy of area with copier. Always had good success. Also carried pen & small pocket note pad ta write down cordinance from my GPS had blue one (legand) of the findings while easing slowly twards area scouted at home, if found fresh sign, slow down. Eyes romen.
Best wishes, don't pressure yourself, & just enjoy the day.
