    Couldn't find this anywhere else but as usual, if it's a duplicate mods please delete!

    Spent some time trying to strengthen my search-foo and went through the TRACKER ACTION PICS THREAD trying to build a list of all the challenges that have been put together there.
    I know I've missed a few and will update the links as they're found.

    So my OCD is to your benefit! DO NOT use this to short cut your way through the TAP thread! That will just show how weak you are in the Go and Do! There is a lot of knowledge and experience there!

    Thanks Judge and of course Mr. Black. I am going to get started on these.

    Don't forget the crossbow. I was amazed by all those posts. Not sure if that was a Tracker challenge or not.

    I do wish anyone else would find a challenge or 2 and post it. Im not sure why this thread isn't considered as important as it is. I mean these are the CHALLENGES. The thread should be full of fresh action and not bloody curly sue pics.

    I'm with @field-expedient This a lofty undertaking and I'll definitely be using it as a framework when I receive a tracker I'm waiting on. The Tracker Action thread is great, but this condenses down some good exercises.

    If the stars align I should have my custom in time for a trip at the end of next month. I plan to do some national forest camping with some fishing and hunting mixed in. I'll be sure to scratch down a list of projects if that ends up being the inaugural trip for that blade.

    Holy crap, leave it to The Pack to keep things going when you're not paying attention!

    Thank You @Medicine maker for everything you've tracked down!
