Event description

Description

Description:

We are excited to introduce the latest in our series of wildlife tracker courses in the British environment.

This promises to be an extraordinary course which brings all the previous tracker courses together. It will expand and stretch your tracking skills to unimaginable heights.

This may seem a little over-exaggerated; but this course has been years in development. It promises to deliver not just tracking, nature awareness, and field-craft skills to new levels but also introduces more tracking techniques to help you achieve your aim including bracketing, jump tracking, trailing, paleo-movement and other enhanced wildlife observation techniques. We will also look at an enhanced zone-in technique.


Technically, we will also be looking in depth at bird tracks and sign and more bird behaviour.

We looked at known human senses versus animals senses in the Wilderness Immersion Course; now we will investigate other senses that animals have and we do not under the heading “Sensory Tracking.” Be prepared to keep an open mind while we explore vibration, energy, magnetism and others. Did we make use of these senses in our primitive past?

But it is the trailing techniques we will concentrate on. US trackers were originally called Trailing Men; the San used Perseverance Hunting techniques to run down their prey to exhaustion. You may not be doing the latter (!)… but you will certainly learn how to stalk at very close quarters without being detected. Just keep looking over your shoulder!


Please note – This is a level 3 (advanced) course and you should be a resonably accomplished tracker and wild-camper to undertake this course. We would like you to have completed the Wilderness Immersion Course and Woodland Tracker before joining us on this course.

We will send out additional information including additional kit suggestions on receipt of your booking.


This is a self catering course and you will be wild-camping in a woodland or forest setting. Please bring a small tent or hammock, tarp and bivi.

Please bring a stove and enough food for the weekend. You can cook over our open fire if you prefer. We will provide you with all fresh drinking water you require but please bring a liquid container.

You are advised to bring an additional small day sack.

We will send you joining instructions including a map to the meeting point.

The course will run from Friday 18:00 (6:00pm) to Sunday 15:00 (3:00pm).

Sorry, no dogs.
