Free of the fingertip confirmation provided by computers and smart phones, there is room for unchallenged speculation and theory. The information represented as absolute fact is sort of a verbal Wikipedia. It may be completely true, or it may be salted with equal parts of truth, conjecture and myth.

Not just while hunting, upland or otherwise.
