thick cover, at the same time. No, stupes, what I SAID was, "darkness OR thick cover". You dont NEED darkness to protect you from long range riflemen, if you have thickly wooded hills. So you can certainly forage, etc in such terrain, in daylight. In open country tho, only a moron like garnad would be out and about in daylight, easily spotted at half a mile with the naked eye, at a mile or more with binocs or a rifle scope. After that, it's just a question of watching what he does or where he goes, planning the stalk or the ambush, and finishing him off.
