Tracking techniques is an ancient skill. Tracking involves looking for deviation in the way things are supposed to look. If you see something that looks out of place, stop and examine it further. Try to determine what occurred.
There are two basic kinds of spoor.
1. Ground spoor is any sign found on the ground - footprints, vehicle tracks, overturned rocks, blood stains, burn marks, etc.
2. Aerial spoor is all above ground sign – trampled vegetation, broken cobwebs, broken brush, and bloodstains above the ground are examples.
