I can understand how folks can get lost in rolling country where there is lots of timber and thick brush. I've hunted in the river bottom swamp along the Appalachicola, below Blountstown, Florida. I'd hate to get caught in that, after dark. It can be confusing during the day.

Hunters in the south Texas brush country can get lost on a cloudy day. Fairly featureless, with lots of brush eight to twelve feet high. Thick clouds and they can't tell direction by the sun.

I've been off-course a time or three, but never been lost. For all that my playground country, these last forty or so years, is some 60,000 acres, there are a fair number of landmark mountains--although every now and then I've run across some idjit who hasn't got it figured out.
