**Mark the Roost Tree **
Locating the roost tree in the dark hours preceding dawn on the day you hunt poses problems. Before you leave the roost area in the afternoon, try to pinpoint the site of the tree with landmarks you can find in the dark, such as creeks, fence lines, logging roads, etc. Try to use your flashlight sparingly. One hunter I know marks roosted birds with a GPS unit, but you can use bright surveyor's ribbon, or even strips of white sheeting, to mark your route to the roosted birds. Just be sure to space the markers so you can see from one to the next, and to take them down on the way back out.
