Aiming Off

 
Aiming Off is used when the target lies on a linear feature such as a ridge, stream or track.
In the example shown the task is to go from point A to the bothy. The bothy is situated at the side of a prominent stream. If we head directly for the bothy but don't hit it straight on then we won't know which way to turn to locate the bothy. By intentionally 'aiming off' to hit the stream to one side of the bothy we will know which way to turn.
