When I took Hunter Safety we were taught how to use a compass. We had one of those where the sighting thing flips up with a thread to allow you to sight on a target. You then go to the target and take a new sighting. Cool stuff. Useful in Michigan where the trees often make a GPS useless.

My husband has never owned a GPS, just uses a compass as needed.
