Study the site
You are required to do some proper research of the place your are going to visit for ghost hunting. You need to get all the information of the site. In addition to this, you need to get information of the ghost which is possibly haunting the area. Try to find out the identity and get information about any supernatural incidents which occurred in that area.
Scout out the site
You need to scout out the area before you start ghost hunting. In case the site is privately owned, it is important to take permission from the owner. You should ask politely in order to go to that location. Check out for any dangerous spots like loose floorboards or dead-falls and make a note of these areas to ensure nobody from your team gets hurt at night.
Gather equipment and set it up
You are required to gather all the different equipment which will help you in your quest. Warm clothes and ability to observe are the basic things that you will need. However, if you are serious about hunting for ghosts, you need things like EMF meters and digital thermometers. In addition to this, you should carry cameras and audio recorders in order to gather evidence. You can also carry flashlights in case you are hunting after dark. After gathering all of the necessary equipment, you need to reach the location in time so you can install everything.
You are required to keep your eyes open and stay quiet. Remember that you should have a lot of patience when ghost hunting as sometimes nothing happens. It is possible that the ghost might not appear for several nights so it is important to take notes and make observations.
