“Can’t bite ‘em if you can’t find ‘em” This episode is truly mind blowing 🤯 with the Hide and Seek Expert, Mic Bonin; proving that K9 guys really are the Swiss Army knives of LEO 😎🐕! Mic started tracking at the ripe young age of 12 in southeast Texas, joined the Army in 1996, then Tulsa County Sheriff Office in 2005. He was a member of SWAT, and was part of the sniper team for 10 years – and he essentially gave dogs the platform to make K9 tracking a bigger deal. Tune in to hear stories about his longest track done on duty (6 miles long 😱), about one track on armed robbers (and how the money was recovered 💰), bust some myths about tracking in the snow ❄️, and the debate on should handlers be trained as visual trackers 🤔? The guys also delve into tactical tracking vs patrol, and discuss investigative tracking, patrol/SAS tracking, and SAR tracking. Mic is the real tracking deal, and you can learn more through SpearPoint Training Group (@sptraininggroup) www.sptraininggroup.com or www.nalet.org
