    Just to clarify, I am not a doctor and the following is taken directly from the latest treatment for first aiders to a confirmed mamba bite. Despite what JonathanD said the term is clearly tourniquet. Not compression bandage. Mambas: The venom is absorbed by the capillary bed into the...

    How do you track Roe Deer?

    Well done, the closer the deer gets to you, the better your concentric circles are! Sometimes slots are difficult to see, however compression shapes in the woods on pine needles etc might be easier to spot, and have a scout around for track traps. My best advice to track your deer is get into...

    Watch out for some mantracking sequences on James May, Manlab Series2, where James and his buddy Oz escape from Dartmoor Prison, and are pursued by a team of Shadowhawk Trackers. The series is a light hearted look at some of the skills lost by men. There should be some "interesting" tracking...

Perhaps as much as nine years ago we ran the first tracking course in the UK, using tracking sticks to BCUK members at Merthyr Mawr( Sorry about spelling).

    Have you any handy tracking tips or kit.

    Its always good to see some engaging tracking chatter going on. One thing for sure is that tracks in the dirt can be works of art, and I have often wondered...." If could only lift that set and mount it, I would be a happy man". Showing tracks at their best is a dark art, I have taken some great...

    Badgers

    Interesting thread. There is a difference between baiting and using attractants. Essentially baiting is aimed at drawing in an animal to feed, and there are ethical problems with feeding, as highlighted in previouse thread. If I want to draw an animal into an area, it is more effective to use...

    british big cats - your views

    As always, it is difficult to interprete tracks without putting them into context. The tracks are feline, there are lots of reasons for this. The rear foot shows that one of the digits is longer than the others. The rear pads have three clear lobes and the general compression shape is round...

    Well done and thanks for choosing tracking as your project. I admire people with vision and the ability to look outside the box. I have worked with several software packages over the years and despite the efforts of the designer they have not really worked. There is the Cybertracker, and a...

    The Jack Kearney book is now very dated. New techniques and styles have long since superceeded his book. The only real way to learn is to attend a course. Tracking cant be learned from a book.
