Tracking a Tiger
Tracking a Tiger in the wild is better experienced than expressed. One thing often explained by the veterans even during the Shikar days was that usually a Tiger sees you first, before you see him. The hearing and sight of wild animals is far and above to humans, specially of those who depend on these senses for food and self-preservation.
There isn’t a sound more liable to fret one’s nerves than the calling of an unseen Tiger at a close range. The liberal use of the throat salve during the call of a Tiger in search of a mate cannot be described in words but heard in the jungles to be appreciated. Not easy, but only when you attune your senses to the Tiger’s you start to experience him even before seeing him.
There are occasions that you will return from a safari without seeing the elusive but trust me he would have seen you.
