    I would like to do a tracking course, but I don't know which provider to choose. Can anyone recommend me a good course?

    Ideally, I need it to be in Southern / South West England and not to cost me an arm and a leg!

    I did the basic and intermeadiate few years ago with Jonny Crocket and Ian Maxwell at Survival School and very good they were too!
    I think Jonny does a tracking course near Exeter if that's any good for you.

    I did a tracking course with Bushcraft Expeditions organised through the forum a few years ago, it was only a taster but Andy and his crew really knew their stuff. I probably took more away from that course than any of the others I've done.

    Worth a look

    I have two very good friends who run Woodlife Trails at www.woodlife.co.uk/, Brilliant courses and they are based in the southeast.

    I've been interested in doing this myself but am based in the North West. Does anyone have any recommendations for courses up here as well.

    Shadow Hawk Tracking is run by Max and is based down in the South West England , I did the Fundamental and Intermediate courses with him just outside of Exeter and found it to be a very useful and eye opening experience. The teaching is conducted by a team of trackers and student to tutor ratio was good when I did the course ( a few years ago now , could do with a refresher..).

    I think Survival School do a course in Staffordshire, not quite the North West but closer than the South West :)

    Yes Max was also running the course I did, he certainly seems to know his stuff.
