ABOUT THE TACTICAL TRACKER ARCHIVE

This site is an on-line source dedicated to providing military operators and law enforcement with man-tracking information, for use in the tactical/combat tracking role. This site maintains historical information as well as “How-to” instruction in this art and science. This is in no way a replacement to receiving formal training in tracking from a reputable source; the bottom line is you still need to get quality “Dirt Time” to be a proficient tactical tracker.

What is Tracking?

 

     Tracking refers to the art and science of detecting, interpreting, following, and preserving the evidence of the presence or passage of any animal or thing. Virtually anything can be tracked via the physical evidence its presence or passage leaves behind; animals, humans, vehicles, weather, etc. By the same token, it is virtually imposable to move across any natural terrain or ground cover, and any man-made "ground covers" as well, without leaving physical evidence. Trackers are trained to detect this evidence. Mantracking refers specifically to the tracking of human beings and, by extension, their devices, such as vehicles. Though the basic skills of detecting, interpreting, following and preserving evidence are the same whether one is tracking a man or an animal, the fact that humans are psychologically complex beings gives mantracking its own additional set of skills and "rules of the game."
