  • The follower erects his ranging rod/pole at the first base point and places a brass handle of the chain against the ranging rod.
  • A leader straightens the chain and inserts an arrow at end of the brass handle. Offsets and tie lines can now be taken.
  • The leader drags the chain so that the follower’s end is on the leader’s arrow; the follower moves to another point and places his ranging pole behind the arrow. This procedure is then repeated.
