Track traps

Finding tracks can be difficult when you first start out.  So looking for places where the tracks will be more visible can be useful.  Think of sandy ground, muddy ground, or even snow.  These places are known as track traps.

You can also make your own track traps, sometimes by just clearing leaf litter out of the way, or by adding sand.

This is something that we talk about on our Tracking & Nature Awareness course as well as on the IOL Bushcraft Competency Diploma.

You can see photos from these courses, as well as all our other courses, on our Facebook page.
