Well, of course she knew her way around a forest!
Complaint #29 – Her knowledge of the forest was barely implied.
TFGeekGirl, TheFandom.Net – Her knowledge of the forest is implied when they first show her hunting in the woods and throughout her time in the arena. This was not “barely.”
Aldrin, Down With The Capitol – In the opening hunting scene, Katniss got the deer to move by launching a rock with her bow. She used crumpled up leaves to see which way the wind was blowing. She walked on a log with ease without falling. None of that stuff I would be able to do, which showed me that she knew way more about the forest than most people would!
Luly – You can see how well she knows the forest in the hunting scenes she did on her own and with Gale, in the way Gale mentions that they could run away and survive out there, in those moments in which she was alone in the arena or taking care of either Rue or Peeta, in the fact that she instantly knew about the berries being poison, in how she looks at the forest scene she sets when she’s about to go to sleep in the Capitol, in the way she moved through the forest, to hunt and to hide, in the way she knew where was the safest place to hide from the careers, in the fact that the careers couldn’t catch her in the forest…and I can go on. There are so many implications of how well she knew the forest.
Savanna, HGFiresideChat – Actually, I think her knowledge of the forest was totally obvious. Think back to the beginning of the film, when Katniss goes hunting in the woods. We get to watch her track that deer every step of the way, and it’s clear that she knows what she’s doing. Also, in the arena, we see how Katniss uses the earth to lead her to water. AND, she immediately recognizes the berries as nightlock.
Tanvi, Hunger Games Network – The entire sequence of the movie exactly implies that. Then, at the Capitol, when Katniss sees the image of the forest, I thought it was a perfect set up. Not sure what else they could have added, this did the job.
