Open Whistler

Here you join the hunt for the elusive wild opencache.  Often while in the woods you can here the call of one creature to another.  A method often used by hunters is to duplicate the calls of their prey.

The opencache is a secretive creature but is easily aroused from it's slumber when it hears the call of another.  The coordinates will place you near a known opencache lair.  Here you should call to the opencache then remain silent in order to track it.  A sharp tone is most likely to elicit a response from any nearby opencaches. If at first you hear no response, take a few steps away and call again.

Since they too have a visual component to their response a night hunt may also be possible.

Just a quick chase after work today.  I thought I heard the elusive wild open cache from the parking lot so I took off headlong into the woods.  After running for about 400 ft. or so I realized that I didn't hear anything anymore and I thought my noise might scare any nearby away.  So I immediately stopped and listened.  Nothing.  Having practiced my calls earlier I gave a few clear ones but not too loud so as to draw any extra attention.  Apparently not loud enough.  I crept a little farther and tried again this time louder.  Finally I heard the opencache off to my right.  After two more calls I spotted it and dashed after it grabbing it before it could escape.  What an awesome adventure. Thanks,

bcAddy

Now to go solve a puzzle, wrapped in an enigma, wrapped in a chocolate bar.

Brrrr...another cache hunt on a cold winter's morning; hopefully the TermiteHunter will remain this prolific in spring and summer!  I went in search of my first wild opencache, and I had the hunting grounds to all to myself.  Reached GZ, puckered up, and began calling for the little sucker.  Whistling is not one of my stronger talents, but after a bit of wandering I finally heard the wild opencache return my call!  A little more searching and I had the elusive little critter in hand - nice swag in this one - I left it for future hunters but left my signature as FTF on the top line of the log.  Nice job once again TH - I whistled a happy tune back to the cachemobile.
