Tracking by Smell

Fire materials

An enemy's patrol has encamped at a certain spot, and thinking all safe, light a fire and prepare a meal. But the sentry reports suspicious signs and sounds, so they immediately damp the fire, but cannot stop the smoking. This should be carried out on a calm but dark night in fairly open spot--the smoke can be caused by smoldering brown paper or damp gunpowder in a tin. The others have to reach the spot by smell, while the encamped party lies absolutely still.
