Last month on October 15, Chris Murray led a man-tracking training. Seven members and prospective members participated in this training. The training began with a presentation by Chris on the types of sign left by people when they move through an area. After the presentation, participants practiced techniques for recognizing sign at a trailhead in the east mountains.
The regularly-scheduled training for November will be a joint training with Sandia Search Dogs on November 11 at the Strip Mine Trailhead, near Placitas. The purpose of this training is to raise awareness in our members on how to work as part of a dog team when requested to do so. Participants will also get some additional practice in litter packaging and hauling. Bring your full SAR pack, as always, and be prepared to do some searching and litter hauling.
