No doubt going away from the traditional environments for combat tracking. What are your thoughts?

TRACKING TERMS- 27 July 2013

By John Hurth
President of TÝR Group LLC and author of "Combat Tracking Guide" published by Stackpole Books.

INCIDENT SITE: The particular site where an event or action occurred, which is linked to the quarry.

CUTTING FOR SIGN: Searching for sign in order to establish a starting point from which to begin tracking.

ENTRY AND EXIT POINTS: The points where the quarry entered in or out of a particular incident site.

INITIAL START POINT (ISP): The point on the ground where a tracker element begins following sign from the quarry. The start point may or may not always be at the incident site and could be at another point somewhere outside of the incident area.

HOT TRACK: A track which is no more than two hours old.

WARM TRACK: A track which is more than two hours old but no more than one day old.

COLD TRACK: A track which is more than one day old.

BACKTRACK: To track back to the area from which the quarry came from.

TIME and DISTANCE GAP: The “theoretical time and distance” the quarry is in front of the tracking element. Time and distance is based upon certain theoretical conditions such as; age of the sign, the time from when a particular incident took place, and the speculative amount of time it takes for the quarry to cover distance over a particular type of terrain.

PURSUE: To establish or re-establish contact with the quarry in order to capture or kill them.

TRAIL: To follow the quarry but stay out of sight from them; usually, this is used when attempting to gather information about the quarry or his movements.

TRACK TRAP: A natural or manmade area which captures impression evidence from the quarry’s passage.

CONTAMINATION: This occurs when a track line enters an area where numerous other tracks exist. Contamination may occur from other tracks not associated with the quarry such as other human beings, animals, or vehicles that enter the same area.
