Two hunters orienting themselves with a compass

A map and a compass can help you avoid getting lost. Unfortunately, not everybody knows how to use a map and compass! The information in Unit 15 is provided to help you learn more about the map and compass. You will not be tested on this material, but you should learn it before you head afield!

If your course instructor does not have time to teach you the basics of the map and compass, you can learn and practice this important skill at home. A map and compass can help you avoid emergency situations only if you know how to use them!
