Wolf and cougar ecology & track training courses

Volunteer trackers are asked to complete a wolf ecology course first, then a track training course before signing up for the Wisconsin Volunteer Carnivore Tracking program. We strongly encourage trackers to take the thorough James Halfpenney track training course at some point.
