About our cover:

Observing wildlife in their natural habitats offers a thrilling experience. However, you're more likely to see the prints they leave behind than the animals themselves. Outdoor Smarts columnist Karen Berger offers a handy field reference guide to identifying the tracks of critters that might cross your path as the chilly weather turns warm. Pair this with your own magnifying glass, and you'll be all set for spring. Cover design by Scott Feaster. Tracks illustration by Martha Mitchell and courtesy of Lynn Levine.
