Links - Tracker Students; Tracker School; Tom Brown Jr.

We were introduced to the concepts and philosophy of the "eye of the tracker" through two simple questions: "What happened here?" and "What is this telling me?" Grandfather used these questions to begin our journey into the profound state of awareness that was the hallmark of the "eye of the tracker." Wherever we explored, wherever we went, we were to hold these questions foremost in our minds. It was not limited to the tracks printed on the ground but extended far beyond into the grand world of creation. In fact, the tracks that we found on the ground were just a small part of the answers.

Tracker School

  • The Tracker School website
  • Children of the Earth Foundation: The Children of the Earth Foundation is a non-profit organization founded by Tom and Debbie Brown. Through our Coyote Tracks Programs, our organization teaches wilderness survival, nature awareness, tracking, and outdoor environmental education to youth ages 7-17. These programs began in 1999 and operated under The Tracker, Inc. until the summer of 2001 when The Children of the Earth Foundation began housing them. Currently, the mainstay of our programs operates during the summer months. We are working to expand our programming to be full-time, year-round programs for school age children and teens. We are also working to bring these programs to youth who are at risk, and to children who have serious illnesses.

Tracker School instructor's sites (current & former)

  • On Point Tactical Tracking School - Kevin Reeve - former director of the Tracker School.
    "There are few pure trackers left in our society, someone who can follow footprints and sign across any terrain, tracking an individual or party until they are found or captured. There are fewer still that can teach such skills.  In a world where terrorism and insurgency are new reality, where security is a major issue, the use of trackers becomes an extremely effective tool for pursuit and capture of those who would attempt to harm our society.  We have a uniquely qualified group of trackers, who have many years of experience in each of these areas. In addition, we have a very effective training methodology for passing these skills on to others.  We typically train only SAR team members, commissioned law enforcement officers, and members of the US Military and Allied forces."

You, as a member of a greater community, will be guaranteed to learn a lot more about tracking than you would on your own. Tracking takes more than a lifetime to learn. People never learn to become master trackers by accident.
