Very well done, and welcome to the forum. You are not alone here, there are several woman hunters here of note.
Hunting is a tradition in many families, Mine included, and I share that love of family heritage.
Enjoy the forum. And if you need any assistance, just ask. People here are helpful and friendly as well as knowledgeable. Great story
The only real difference between a good tracker and a bad tracker is observation. All the same data is present for both. The rest is understanding what you are seeing.
