TESTIMONIALS

I became acquainted with Kyt several years ago and in all my tracking experience I have never met anyone as passionate and enthusiastic as she has demonstrated.  Kyt’s research and personal commitment is admirable.  I was fortunate enough to have Kyt join me in a week-long class. […] I have officially made Kyt a representative and instructor of “Hull’s Tracking School“. She has demonstrated interest, skills, and integrity that are most inspiring for a tracking practitioner.” David Michael Hull, Virginia, U.S.

“Always intrigued by this discipline, I decided to attend the Tracking Level 1 course held by Kyt Lyn Walken. I found it wonderful, informative and very interesting; Kyt is truly an instructor capable of transmitting notions and all the passion he has for this discipline. I have already advised colleagues and acquaintances to participate in one of her courses” M.S. OR-4 11°rgt Bersaglieri Esercito Italiano

“The course is a set of knowledge that can be very useful both in the outdoor and urban fields. All notions are explained in a simple, complete and exhaustive way, accompanied by practical examples and effective and appropriate demonstrations. The level of difficulty is progressive and with the right commitment all notions can be assimilated. Having this knowledge can be useful in many cases and in totally different environments. I recommend it to everybody” L.C.  28esimo Rgt. “Pavia”, Comunicazioni Operative – Comparto Special Operations Forces

After viewing thewayoftracking.com website and reading all of its qualifications, my expectations for the course were very high. I must say that he paid off in full with his humility and professionalism”

Tracking Series 08 – Brian McConnell: Hunting and Trailing Wildlife and CyberTracker Trailing Evaluations The Wilderness and Wellness Podcast

In this eighth episode of my tracking series I had the fortune to catch up with avid hunter, tracker, and CyberTracker evaluator Brian McConnell. In our discussion we cover a lot of ground (pun intended). Brian fills us in on his background as a young man being taught by his dad how to hunt in the Arkansas woods, then learning intuitively to trail deer, and finally, later in life, connecting with a class offering formal training in tracking techniques which helped him refine his craft to the point of earning a specialist level on his second ever trailing evaluation, then becoming an evaluator shortly after. Brian shares his knowledge on:·      How a trailing evaluation unfolds and what the evaluator is scoring the tracker on·      How he uses tracking to inform and support his hunting activities, especially for deer and elk·      Tells us some hunting stories, showcasing how 90% of the elk he takes are done so by trailing right to the animal·      Gives us some practical tips on how to begin learning the art of trailing, especially for hunting purposesConnect with Brianhttps://trackercertification.com/evaluators/Book RecommendationsDersu the Trapper, by: V.K.

PROJECTS:

Natural Empowerment for Girls – with Matt Casey (United Kingdom)

“The Natural Empowerment for Girls initiative aims to help build confidence, self-esteem and resilience in girls and young women. Through learning and developing outdoor skills, the programme and the setting provides opportunities for them to address the issues and pressures that impact on them the most, and share their experiences collectively. They gain a number of practical skills such as shelter building, safe fire management, tool use, and undertake creative tasks, helping to create a sense of achievement. This leads to them running all aspects of the camp by themselves, providing ownership of the sessions. Moreover, the workshops provide moments for discussion and reflection, which will cover a range of topics relevant to the issues they face as young women. Skilled staff will lead with this, and guest speakers will provide real life experience to help inspire and motivate. The forest setting provides a calm and peaceful environment. Nature creates the ambience. The elements help build the resilience, no matter what the weather.The programme will launch with a pilot scheme over the next couple of months.”
