The easiest way to ensure you are following a bearing is to pick an easily identifiable object, such as a tree or rock, in the distance,along the line indicated by the direction of travel arrow. You can then walk to this object without looking at the compass. Then repeat the process identifying a new object along the bearing. This technique allows you to move off the bearing to negotiate obstacles but still return to the bearing at the object you had previously identified as being on the bearing line.
