Horizon Tracking Service LLC   [895 clicks] :: [-> Add to Favorites]
    Tracking bio For Bob Matthews: Horizon Tracking Service LLC Much of my skill base comes from learning from my father who was a member of the Aberdaire Rangers in Kenya during the Mau-Mau war. “This is a group that was behind the enemy lines for four years with out support they lived off the land.” My main focus now is using my other skill base in the field of backcountry skills instruction. With an emphasis on my most well developed as a Tracker. I have instructed many different groups in the art/skill, As a child I spent all the free time I had to learn from some of the traditional Romany Gypsies that lived in our village; about all the ways England’s countryside would provide for good living. My own history has taken me to different areas of the world to learn more, I tracked with Hugaret Bedouine with the Israeli army taking part in border patrols as part of a tracking team. In 1982 during a visit to Morocco I was invited to travel with Nomadic Tuaregs, we traveled about 1/3rd of the length of the Sahara in South Eastern Morocco, It just coincided with the start of a war during which King Hassan II decided to gain land; this resulted in my traveling group being caught between three different armies, it was a very interesting learning curve to be on. I gained a level of knowledge and experience that is difficult to measure. With breathing being the true certification, standard of success. I have held varied high security clearances, ranging from White house background a Secret service approval in the 1980’s Also helping USFW that included an extensive clearance check. Plus Interpol background check; I attended the Conservation Law Enforcement Association conferences held in Prescott and training seminars. I have assisted different Law enforcement agencies in The USA, absolute Confidentiality is a requirement. My wildlife focused interests: I was hired to guide a team from the Philips organization’s CD rom development program, locating various rattle snakes .for which I have credits on the production team. Also been a wrangler with lizards working on a movie production,” Prey and the sequel Prey again”. As the cofounder of a small zoo in Prescott Arizona I have been involved in many rescues of injured wildlife, during which operations tracking was crucial, to safely locate and catch said animals. It was often a matter of tracking several days after the animal’s plight started. During twenty years of living in Prescott I have provided a rattle snake rescue free of charge, I have volunteered with The AZ Game and Fish in a number of capacities.
