A Story

A complete print is not always possible to be found. More times than not only fragments of prints are seen. A walking person leaves sign approximately every 18-20 inches, 3000 times per mile, finding even a small percentage of this should not be difficult. The probelm is learning to determine what is relevant and what is not.

Depending on the enviroment, a tracker may look for bent grass, broken twigs, flattened soil, disturbed brush, compressed stones, and many other signs.

Sign may be classified in two different categories

The Novice Tracker

Any track or sign is considered evidence until proven otherwise

Once a track has been destroyed it can not be reconstructed

If the objective is finding a lost person, destroying sign can literally mean the difference between life or death

Credo of the novice tracker:

Intro | Tracking | Sign | Course | Schools | Officers | Apply | Links | Home
