I'm trying to get my head round some range finding / course setting "tricks".

I read in the sticky on range finding (which is great ) that a target set down a tunnel looks further away, also if there is dead ground ( ground you can't see ) it looks further to the eye.

Are there any more of these little tricks? E.g. an elevated target, a target where there is a change in light ( shadows from trees ) between you and the target, or a change in ground cover etc. Etc..


easiest way is to help set a course , its defo not all about range, it is also about light and wind eg put the peg in a windy spot and put the target along a tall thicket , people always overwind , you can also do it the otherway round and see people not give it enough , believe me its defo not always an advantage setting courses as you may think "theres that 32yd range trap" miss it and realise its further round the course ,
Anyhoo where would be the fun in people telling you all the tricks , thats the learning curve, enjoy ]
