I recently was given a book from someone when they found out I was interested in man-tracking. In the last few months I’ve seen at least three instances where man-tracking found the subject after dogs and ground and air searchers had tried. the book I was given is called Tom Brown’s Science and Art of Tracking. This was a good easy read with a lot of information and instruction. I highly recommend it to anyone even remotely interested in tracking.
After reading the book in just a few days, I went and made my first iteration of a very ‘mini’ tracking box. I also now have a legit reason to people watch now; learning about body movement. I hope to put in as much ‘dirt time’ as I can and eventually attend a course by the Boarder Patrol so I can put these skills to use in the field.
