Scout Tracker - Level 2

Notify me when this product is available:

Learn the mindset, skills, tactics, and gear of tracking, through modern scientific methods that anyone can learn.  

Our instructional staff has spent the better part of their lives tracking through trial and error and training with some of the best instructors in the world.  This covers two distinctly different, yet intertwined topics:  camouflaging and tracking.  

This class will train the participants of stealth and unseen movement through the wilderness. Highlights of this class will include the study of camouflaging tactics and gear including both natural and modern man-made gear. We will train you in the art of stalking both solo and in teams for both observation and reconnaissance.  We will utilize teams to hunt and pursue one another in an attempt to be able to move from one area to another without being seen. Particular attention will be given to tracking and other sign observation and understanding. This class is always challenging. It is a good way to be introduced these topics or to polish your skills from other training opportunities. 

Level 2 - Level 2 will involve exercise planning and execution against other groups and teams. We will utilize skills learned in the Level 1 class to assist the groups and teams to test one another's abilities in head-on competition. These exercises will be set up to put into practical exercise, camouflaging, tracking, and operational tactics and techniques. Land Navigation (map and compass) skills are not necessary but will be an added aid to all training exercises.
