Default Tracking Foundation

This is a kind of broad question on tracking, but how do you begin teaching tracking. How quickly do you progress?
I am curious to see how teaching tracking varies. Success in one method over another?

I started over with the HITT method, and its working very well.

Can you elaborate? I have read a little on the HITT method, but I don't understand how you transition it to footsteps.

Well for me, its unique in that they already know footsteps, but I believe it is based on vegetation and not human scent... thus, taking a step back and working on just the human scent portion
