Newspaper

footprints1

A snowfall makes excellent tracking. When I spent time with Ray Mears in the Arctic and then again in the desert of Namibia he used to describe it as the ‘daily newspaper’.  At the end of the day we used to mark out an area. The next morning we would get up at first light and record all the footprints and marks. So much can be learnt from direction, depth and size of prints. Its an excellent way to learn tracking and something we try to do on our Country Tours. You will be surprised what you can learn – any clues to what these footprints show ?!
