32. Know Where To Do Things
You may know already that when you have a great campsite, you should never use the restroom right there. It is best to walk a bit away and dig a hole to do your business in. Then cover it before you leave. This needs to happen at least the length of a 50 to 100 yards. Smells can travel and animals can sniff out other animals by their “business.”
That means you’re kept safer by doing this away from the campsite than close to it. The same is in play when you’re skinning another animal. Again, like doing your business, other animals can smell out things like entrails from another animal. They may stay away from fires but anything you leave from the animal unused has a smell even humans can sniff out. Process away!
