Ready for this? Sometimes there are no v isible indicators, no quick and easy way to spot the enemy.
Then, like a cop checking the plates of every 2006 red Camaro in Kansas City for recent accident damage, you must thoroughly check every single potential location completely, boringly, repeatedly, until maybe hours or days later, you find one needle in the haystack. You need the self-discipline of patience.
Patience, patience, patience! The enemy will have to urinate in only an hour or two, insects may bite and bother him; the sun continuously shifts about like a great spotlight, illuminating now what had been shadow a moment before. Meanwhile, wind and sun degrade any foliage he cut for camouflage, and sweat washes cammo stick from his face and hands. He cannot stay motionless long before he gets cold or hungry or sleepy or uncomfortable. Conditions are changing constantly.
As the hours drag by and your eyes grow tired, never forget that your enemy is human, which means he's imperfect, and given enough time, he'll do something to make himself detectable.
