thank you so very much for the video, I have not seen it before but have heard of the two trackers Teddy and George before.
I would agree with the SES guy even knowing 10% of knowledge of an Experienced Tracker would de incredible, in fact knowing 10% of aboriginal knowledge of Nature would be overwhelming .

My oath it Mozzie
The knowledge that aboriginals have and willing to share is unbelievable , and to see and hear such genuine respect and appreciation from others is great.

I'm speechless at the skill these trackers have. It's at a level beyond attention to detail...

Its almost like rather than just only look at this and look at that hoping to see a marker, instead they are so familiar with the untouched bush that these out of place details stand out. Amazing and so humble!
