Packing animals for transport of cargo is a fascinating, but dying art. I first realized this when I began searching for help in preparing this program. After following several cold trails, I came in contact with Del Cameron of The Del Cameron School for Guides at Victor, Montana. It quickly became apparent that the dying art was in fact alive and "kicking" in the heart of the Northern Rockies. I would like to thank Del for his aggressive interest and technical assistance in the preparation of this part of our unconventional warfare training program and the solid foundation and frame of reference from which to initiate it.
