Hands (paws, hooves, or otherwise) down, this is the most legitimate multi-use tracking tool.
Accurate identification and interpretation of animal behavior via track and sign is an outdoor skill that has been all but lost by the average person, even to the most experienced outdoors-folks. Learning even the basics of tracking will yield a more enriching awareness in nature as well as a practical tool when your life may depend on it.
We decided to take our incredible Tracking Bandana design and put it on a USA Made neck gaiter. Not only does it contain the most accurate tracks available, shown to scale, The Tracking Neck Gaiter also provides coverage during any season, on any river or trail.
We partnered with tracking experts to help guide us and choose the list of animals based on certain criteria that would allow you to have the most success with this bandana. We requested animals:
- Found across the majority of North America
- Most abundantly found in the wild
- That may indicate water nearby
- That are easy food sources
- Most useful for side-by-side comparison
We also included false eyespots. These are a form of mimicry adapted by various insects, birds, fish, and reptiles, as well as by some human cultures. The gaiter can be worn so the “eyes” face outward and seen on the back of the head or on the front while napping.
