The ultimate resource for mammal trackers.
As more people come to value the natural world and venture into wildlife areas, a reference to help identify the animals who call these places home has never been more useful. A Field Guide to Tracking Mammals in the Northeast gives you all the details necessary for following animals large and small―from chipmunks and woodchucks to bobcats and black bears. Meticulously drawn illustrations and informative discussions provide the user with an array of tools for identification unmatched in any other tracking book.
This guide also includes thorough discussions of distinguishing features, illustrations of scat, notes on other signs and habitat, measurements for tracks and gaits, and diagrams of characteristic gaits. Lightweight, portable, and comprehensive, this book is an ideal tool for trackers at all levels.
Over 100 pages of black and white illustrations.
