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.
The Winter Tracking Intensive is open to all skill levels and students. The weekend 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 weekend as we take in depth looks into the lives of the animals living in Vermont’s forests. For more information...
