This course includes a free beautifully illustrated field guide of British wildlife tracks and scat.
We dont just show you the tracks, we give you a toolbox of skills to take home. The PHASE TECHNIQUE will give you the confidence to see and interpret subtle tracks and signs of animals and humans in a few simple steps. Within a few days you will be tracking animals with confidence.
This is our signature course, and uses tried and tested wildlife tracking skills. Have you ever seen tracks and then they disappear, or you werent sure what they were. Have you ever wanted to find those majical tracks and get closer to wildlife.
The Tracker course has been developed to show you some amazing techniques that you can use at home in the woods or in far off places. We cover the different styles of tracking, including tracking using intuition. Tracking is an essential part of bushcraft and survival.
The course is relaxed and informative with both theory and practical instruction. You will lean things that arnt in any books.
The course is self catering, so you will need to bring everything you will need including refreshments. Camping is optional, but recommended.
The Tracker Courses run from Friday night to Sunday afternoon.
