How to Track a Leprechaun
If you are on the hunt for a leprechaun, or if someone reading over your shoulder is on the hunt for one, here are some hints on where to find Leprechaun tracks.
- Look near the leprechaun trap first. They are mischievous so they will naturally be attracted to any trap.
- Look near shiny things. If you have a jar of pocket change, or a ring dish with jewelry sitting out, be sure to go check there for signs of the leprechaun.
- When you are looking right at the spot where you think they should be, turn around really quickly to see if they are peaking at you mischievously.
- All their mischief makes them hungry, so check the low shelves of the pantry too in case he stopped for a snack.
