You did not mention gun or bow, but the answer is the same. unload and lower your weapon to the ground. Only an idiot would try to claim you are still hunting. and unless you are a minor, You have no curfew, so enjoy the evening in a tree if you wish. If it is a stick bow, unstring it before leaving or slip a gun lock around your strings of a compound. It makes it real obvious your are not activly hunting. But whatever weapon your are using, be sure it is unloaded after legal hunt time. It gets real costly if not. I got my boots from a hunter who was found by a game warden 15 minutes after legal evening time. He was lost and trying to find where he parked his truck. The game warden showed him where his truck was, and took his guns and most of his gear, gave him a ticket and a court date, and told him it was because of ammo still in his gun after lights out.
The only real difference between a good tracker and a bad tracker is observation. All the same data is present for both. The rest is understanding what you are seeing.
