The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time Tips

Stun Guards In Gerudo Fortress
Prior to receiving the pass in Gerudo Fortress you can shoot the gerudo guards with arrows and they will be stunned until you enter one of the Fortress entrances. Note the guards by the entrances to the Gerudo Training Ground and Haunted Wasteland are immune and they will catch you. If you have no arrows then the longshot can stun them for a brief period of time too.

Use this to make rescuing the carpenters so much easier.
