Basic Tracking: A Waterproof Pocket Guide to Familiar Animal Sign in the Eastern Woodlands (Pathfinders Outdoor Survival Guide)by Dave Canterbury
Synopses & Reviews
Well-known outdoor expert Dave Canterbury offers basic techniques and essential information for primitive wilderness survival in this new heavy-duty pocket guide series from Waterford Press. Perfect for throwing into an overnight pack or brushing up on skills before an expedition, these waterproof, rip-proof guides can be used on their own or in conjunction with one another, similar to the method used in Canterburys unprecedented Pathfinder System. Covering everything from what to include in a survival kit and improvised tracking techniques to signaling for rescue and building shelter, this collection is ideal for outdoor adventurers of any skill level and provides indispensable wilderness information for all situations.
This helpful tool covers the fundamentals of tracking animals found in the Eastern Woodlands, as well as how to follow them through various landscapes. An excellent precursor to the Improvised Trapping guide, this portable handbook also includes the seven types of signs to look for while following woodland creatures.
Basic Tracking is the essential guide to take on your next wilderness adventure. Having knowledge of the surrounding terrain and basic animal behavior allows trackers to save valuable time by predicting the animal's movements. Basic Tracking also provides instructions on how to track them through landscape usage. This compact and waterproof folding guide will highlight the seven types of signs that point to which animals passed by, what they did, where they went, and much more. Co-authored by noted survival expert and woodsman Dave Canterbury, this is one of a 10-part series on survival skills.
