I have a tip fore Goosehunting:

Remember to use the wingflap and goose caller in co-operation with your hunter friend in multiplayer.
You will have double working effect in attraction fore the geese to come in and break off.

CHOSEN AS THE TIP OF THE WEEK

If you receive a call, ID it and check where the circles are on the Huntermate map. Then immediately put the Huntermate away or replace it by another item. You can now walk towards the calling location or call and wait. The next time you take out the Huntermate, even if 5 minutes later, the circles will still be there. The circles use up "screen time". Their timer only runs down when ever the Huntermate is equipped. You can repeat this four, fives times before the circles finally die off. Every time check the Huntermate quickly and remove it again.

This method saves you from having to create red dots on the map. Once you get used to doing this, you will do it all the time. ;)

CHOSEN AS THE TIP OF THE WEEK

It is interesting as once I figured out how to put a red dot on the map, I never used that method again.

An extension of that is if you want to mark several positions, mark a dot on the map, and then draw a small cross on the big map to mark it. You can then place the red dot in a new position without losing the position of the old mark.

Unless you have somewhere important to go, stop and take the time to ID every track you come across. This increases your tracking skill. Better tracking skills makes it easier to track wounded animals and gives more information about the animals which can help you locate that big trophy.

General Tip:

If you can't find the next track, try looking just outside the tracking cone on either side. Some animals don't like to play by the rules.
