Tracking a band of sheep grazing on public lands (present-day Utah)

Story setting: Utah, 2012, late April/early May

Scenario: I have a protagonist who wants to track down and intercept an individual sheep herder--who, in this case, is not a hired hand but a (very) small individual owner of his own small flock--actively grazing on public lands. This herdsman keeps a low profile and has minimal ties to the world at large, no online presence, etc. The protagonist has the legal name of the herder, but arrives at his permanent base address to find that he is out grazing for the season.

How do you track down a flock of grazing sheep?Collapse )
