- Great tracking story Ken. I'll share mine. Hiking
in the backcountry there is a bed of clay, silt that
is almost always wet. I check there often because
the tracks take a long time to deteriorate and make
great casts, and of course it seems to attract a lot of
wildlife because its by a river bed. I've taken wonderful
wolf tracks there, but on this day I found the tracks
of 2 grizzly bear and one black bear. One of the
grizzly's walked down to the creek for a drink and his
front paws slid down the slippery clay into the water.
There were also muskrat, deer, elk and coyote. Didn't
have my casting material, so I went back first thing
the next morning to take some casts, which turned out
great. I think every track contains part of the spirit
of the animal and therefore each track is sacred and
a special gift to find.<br>Wesly
- I found some really good mink tracks along the
river yesterday. I don't know how common these are, but
in this area, I have never found them. I have found
them further north of me. But my area seems to be the
territory of river otters. Anyone know how rare mink are?
Are they fairly common nowadays?
