To see every leaf that trembles, bug that moves or animal, etc in the bushes or hiding in the field...focus on only one spot and then let your eyes relax and in the peripheral vision you will be able to see all that moves in a very wide area.
This is also a good thing to know about if you are pulling sentry duty for your camp. Don't forget that your eyes will glow the same as the animal's eyes shine in the dark when looking toward a light source...or if the moon hits them right. This is something to keep in mind in the daylight too. The sun glancing off a barrel or a belt buckle can give one's position away.
Don't stand around the fire if you are doing a night watch. You won't be able to see much because of the firelight. Move away from the light and into the shadows. Keep your back against a tree trunk or a rock or heavy bushes that you can hear anyone or anything moving through. That will save any surprises from that direction.
Learn to survive in the wilderness.
