Abstract:

The Combat Hunter training program was first conceived in 2007 to meet a training gap in small unit close combat warfighting. This US Marine Corps USMC program of instruction POI trains the fundamentals of combat profiling, tracking, and optics-based observation, helping students become successful combat hunters in an irregular warfare battlespace. This report describes the Border Hunter training event, which took place in April 2010. Border Hunter may be best characterized as a one-off, graduate level version of the Marine Corps Combat Hunter course. The authors attended the Border Hunter course in order to 1 capture the course content and package it for greater deployability, 2 assess the instructional outcomes of the course, and 3 explicitly articulate the linkages between the course content and underlying scientific principles. This report details the results of these endeavors.
