Tracking

God’s creation is full of wonderful and interesting creatures.  We get to see some of these creatures quite often in the form of domesticated animals like dogs or horses.  Other more wild animals are a much rarer sight, but all will leave signs of their passing-by, which a skilled observer can readily identify.  One of the more enjoyable aspects of taking a hike through a nature area is looking for and identifying the various animal signs that can be seen and followed.

This is also a very necessary skill for hunters who may need to track a wounded animal.  Very skilled hunters often track their quarry from the outset.  This skill, when refined, usually offers a greater probability of a successful hunt than does the strategy of hoping for the quarry to come to the hunter.  Tracking is not just a skill common to hunters.  It is used by thousands of amateurs and professional people who study wildlife.
