Animal & Man Tracking Oregon Survival School

Animal & Man Tracking – Oregon

Animal and Man Tracking can be explained as interpreting an animal or human presence and passage in nature. The art of seeing, as trackers often call tracking, is an ancient survival skill.

Tracking is a survival skill that never goes out of style.

Our survival depends on locating water, food, and finding a safe place to camp for the night. When we track we may find tracks left by wildlife, bruised leaves may show us someone has recently walked here. Using other senses such as our sense of hearing or smell can lead us to water.

Animal Tracking

Tracking in the simplest of terms is acknowledging and following a disturbance. What Trackers call Sign.
A Tracker is able to glean specific information from a track, sign, or disturbance made by animal or man. Sign is found on the landscape.

For instance, a raccoon leaves or registers its prints in the soft sand along the shore of a lake. What is the Raccoon up to?  A freshly browsed shrub with shiny clipped stems may tell us how recently a deer has fed.

Practical tracking has many uses, from discovering what animals visit your yard to wildlife observation. Of course tracking can be a great skill to develop for hunting success. Trackers are found in the military, law enforcement, and search and rescue.

"Getting down on the ground low, turn off the "noise", and really just look hard. It's a wonderful world down there and just one story after another in very minute forms. Thanks, Mark, for making me continue to search for one track after another. Had a blast, I will be back again." ~Roberta Kellis
