Bring a friend along on your digging trips
Maybe you lack the necessary searching skills to locate lost gear, but your buddy might not. My friend, Marc Harmon, once located my lost backpack in some woods long after Id given up the search.
Use a homing device. After work one day in England, some friends and I went out hunting with the intention of staying out all afternoon and most of the night. My friend, Jim, had rigged up some sort of small, battery-powered, blinking light contraption, which he placed on my cars roof. When it turned dusk we stopped hunting long enough to return to my auto, whereupon Jim activated his device. It worked splendidly, but a modern GPS system might be tremendously effective.
