When pursuing the real life outlaws Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid in the late 1890s, Pinkerton National Detective Agency employees Charlie Siringo and Joe Lefors contracted the advanced tracking skills of native American experts to hunt down the infamous "Hole in the Wall" gang.
Lefor’s trackers could follow man or horse over slick rock and through water, both day and night. Tracking was a way of life, a deep seated skill set honed from childhood that enabled indigenous tribes to not only feed their families by tracking game in harsh environments, but also wage extended guerilla operations against opposition by reading and following enemy movements over any terrain and in any condition.
Melting into the wilderness as urban society collapses, surviving for an extended period of time in a hostile area when cut off from support, or simply understanding our ancestors’ way of life and their immediate connection to the earth – these are all reasons to take onPoint Tactical’s Wilderness Survival and Primitive Living courses.
