Before you go on a hunt, leave a hunting plan with a responsible family member or friend. Your hunting plan should contain all the information necessary to help someone find you in case of an emergency. At the very least a hunting plan must tell someone where you are going, who you are hunting with and when you are returning. It should also contain specific directions on your route to your destination and any alternate destination you may have if bad weather changes your plans. Finally, it is important that you call the person you have left the hunting plan with if you have changed your plans or are going to be delayed.
