Age of the Track


The age of the track is one of the hardest jobs a tracker has.
Broken sticks, will have tiny fibers at the break that will slowly
curl up and sometimes disappear. At the break you can also notice that
the broken end is white in color and as time goes on, the ends begin to
brown. Try setting up different signs you might see and observe as time begins
it's aging process.
Footprints that were made the day before will have a crust if the night has
been wet with dew, otherwise you must look for other signs like leaves that
have fallen across the track or maybe bugs that have moved across the track.
If another animal print has imprinted itself in the track, and no crust from
night dew is present, then you at least have the same day.
