The skill of wildlife trailing was used by all our ancestors to find animals for survival. In today's world these field skills continue to be valuable in hunting, as well as being tremendously useful for wildlife research and conservation projects.

Trailing is an exciting skill set that combines sensory awareness, stealth, track & sign interpretation, and strategy.

In this course you will:

  • Learn the keys to effective trailing
  • Understand the three types of trailing conditions
  • Learn track aging and interpretation for trailing
  • Trail ungulates through varied terrains

This course is also great preparation for taking the Cybertracker trailing evaluation for tracker certifications.

The class is held at field sites where there are opportunities to trail elk, deer, black bear, and cougar. The field-based course includes instruction and coaching in trailing skills while following fresh animal tracks.
