The Need for Quiet

I’ve been watching a number of these ‘finding a monster’ programmes recently and I have to say that I’m completely mystified. What they are doing essentially is hunting and one of the most important requisites for hunting anything, whether you intend to kill it or record it, is stealth. You need to be quiet, you need to take scent and wind direction into account, you need to be still or move only slowly, you should not be shining lights and, above all, you should not have a camera crew faffing around.

If any of these programmes does come across anything it will almost certainly be by accident…but if they want to learn some real skills, come to the Highlands of Scotland and spend a week with an old stalker, he’ll put them right.

About edwardchunter

Hello, my name is Edward Hunter. If you've read my first book Windigo, then you'll know that I am the Uncle of Archie, who features in much of my writing. We both live on the Strathnuin estate which is just a stone's throw from Loch Ness. Now my brother Magnus (Archie's father) is missing, presumed dead, Archie and I look after the Estate. Archie's further adventures will be published soon - look out for 'The Monster Factory' any time now.
