Trackards for North American Mammals
The Companion Guide to Trackards for North American

Summer is the subtle season for the
tracker, a time to test his skills. No
longer do tracks stand out as dark
spots against a field of white. Now they
and other sign hide in a confusing
background of anomalies. Much closer
attention must be paid just to find sign,
not to mention identify and interpret it.
Such is the case in the turmoil of
random marks in muddy sand at left.
Studying the photo closely may reveal
the obscure trail of a bear with paired
front and hind prints showing a gait
called a "wiggle walk."
