Training for Trackers- The Kettlebell
by Matt Breton

As the weather continues to improve it is time to train more outside. Classic strengthening can get a little more challenging outdoors because you don’t have access to a wide variety of equipment that you might in a gym. A little creativity will help you meet the training demands for building strength before the season gets here. Tracking bucks does not require a body builder’s physique, a power lifter’s strength or an Olympic lifter’s technique. What it does require is a certain amount of strength to get it done. What is it?
A Hunting Camp with Trackers
by Mark Scheeren

This past year I had the privilege of spending time in hunting camp with some of the greatest trackers in the Northeast. We had snow early on, and then it continued on throughout periods of the rifle season.

But with that said, there is another form of practice that gets less attention – practicing the art of tracking in the off season.

There had been a number of mistakes that led to this point, but rehashing those would only make things worse. The decision was made to start hiking out. A couple of hours later the trail was lost. With fading hope of getting out that night to a warm meal in camp, the three of us decided to spend the night in the woods. We were under-prepared for a night out but had basics.
