What are Gait Studies? Gait refers to the movement pattern the animal is using and the corresponding gait pattern is left for trackers to interpret. In human terms, walk, jog, run, sprint, sit, stand, kneel, etc, etc.
This is a daily course, please bring your own food. Camping is available by request.
The Winter Tracking class is open to all skill levels and students 16 and older. The day will be predominantly experience based, offering guided ‘dirt time’ in which students can push their skills in real tracking situations. Trailing and interpretation will be a major theme for the day as we take in depth looks into the lives of the animals living in Vermont’s forests. Expect to cover a lot of snow in any weather conditions and to spend the day in the forests and fields tracking. Snow shoes recommended if the snow is deep.
