Q: I have a Silva compass that I use to get a bearing on a gobbling turkey, and it has twice reversed polarity, then corrected itself after a couple of days. I'm not using it near a power source or any magnetic object and am puzzled. I like the little compass because it's the right size to use when plotting the bearing on a topo map. It hasn't caused me any real problems because I'm hunting familiar territory and have a pretty good idea which way the sun comes up most days. Any ideas about what is causing this?

Q: I have avery old compass and it appears that the needle has lost it's ability to point north. Is there a way to re-magnitize the needle?
