Human tracking is a key element in the realm of Scout skills. In this course we will focus on human tracking in teams with security following subjects who dont want to be followed. We will cover subject ID, track aging, trailing in varied substrates, gait interpretation, site interpretation, counter tracking, team movement and tactics, and much more. The ability to follow trails, analyze them for key information, discover their age, and build a profile of your subject is a game changer. We will interpret camp sites and cache spots, and investigate how to see through counter tracking.
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.
