      Someone mentioned a book about tracking on one of the threads and I’m not locating it right off. I though I had wrote down the book but can’t find that either. So I’ll ask as a general question do you have any favorite books or videos on the subject of tracking game? Thank you

      Shane, this is a good question and I’m eager to see recommendations from folks too. I’ve done a bit with the army but have never read a book on the subject.

      “Tom Brown’s Field Guide to Nature Observation and Tracking” offers lots of good info.

      Thanks Smithhammer. That’s the one I think was mentioned.

      But other suggestions are always welcomed too if you have a good one to recommend on the subject.

      I no longer rifle hunt, but still enjoy a few of the Benoit Brothers books. For northwoods whitetails enthusiasts, there’s good woodsmandhip and tracking info. for any hunter.

      Shane,

      Since you live in Oregon and have similar fauna, you should check out “California Natural History Guide to Animal Tracks and Scat” by Elbroch, Evans, & Kresky. This is the most recent tracking guide and has some awesome track plates and a great introduction section. Or “Wildlife of the pacific Northwest” by Moskowitz. For the rest of the country “Mammal Tracks & Sign” by Elbroch, this guide covers everything from tracks, dens, feeding sign, scat, beds, kill sites, most everything you could want in a book.

      I love Animal Tracks and Signs by Bang and Dahlstrom, always keep it in my rucksack so I have it in the field.

      Wexbow, You’re right that is a great guide for European folks.

      Anything by Tom Brown, Paul Rezendes’ book, the art of tracking and seeing,

      Jim Lowry if you are in the west.

      Browns book is great, gets you into the super technical aspects of tracking. Tracks are line drawings though which leaves a lot for speculation.

      Rezendes gets into more animal bx and has great photos.

      Get ’em both.
