Survival Video Volume 8 of the Woodsmaster teaches YOU to TRACK!
One of the most important, and most difficult, skills of the Woodsmaster is the ability to track. In this volume of the Woodsmaster we examine the fundamental skills related to the art of tracking. We show you the “Four principles of sign”, how to read “Action indicators”, and ways to learn the age of a track. You’ll see how to make and use a “Tracking pit” and exercises you can do to sharpen your tracking skills. Since light is critical to effective tracking you’ll see the secrets of good lighting as well as dozens of Woodsmaster tracking tips and techniques.
In this volume we use the human footprint as the best way to learn tracking. If you practice however, you will be able to track anything that leaves “Sign.”
In addition to tracking, you will learn how to utilize a large knife for small work, how to sharpen a knife using a variety of tools as well as how to bring up your edge with a belt!

Believe it or not, I was so impressed with this series of videos that it was one of the reasons I started CampingSurvival.com. Being a former Marine and outdoors enthusiast, I greatly appreciate the excellent job Ron and Karen Hood do of sharing their vast knowledge of camping and survival skills. However, despite all that they teach in every video, I still find them to be very entertaining as well. These videos are so enjoyable that they make me long for Spring even before winter has started! Buy one and I guarantee you'll want to buy them all!
