I might have become soft over the winter, but need to get back to where I can concentrate on my edge. After a while the edge develops.
Mantracking is a relentless, intelligent pursuit of the target using a triad of skills. Spoor detection,field craft and tactics. Each one of these skills needs a depth of background and knowledge, but needs the eyes, nose, ears, mouth and skin to be A1 condition, plus the physical side of fitness.
So, I know where I am on the scale of mantracking, and need to get back to where I can track fast over hard surfaces.
