How to Track a Human

• artofmanliness.com by Brett and Kate McKay

To help track them down, they bring on an Indian scout. To the astonishment of the cowboys, the native guide can determine how many people are in the bad guy's gang, how long ago they camped at a particular spot, and that one of the ruffians is injured. It almost seems like magic.

But it's not.

The scout was simply using a set of keen, field-developed senses, and practicing good forensics.

A few years ago when I did the ITS Tactical Muster, one of my favorite classes at the event was on human tracking, taught by professional combat tracker John Hurth. In just a few short hours, John was able to show us how to know what's going on with someone on the lam and where he or she is headed simply by looking at their footsteps or noticing a broken branch.
