If you already have some instructor skills, or if you just want some flat out awesome wilderness survival training, this program is for you.
We start off with a thorough survival training overview, combined with nature awareness and earth skills crafts like quick bows, traps, bone tools and earth philosophy.
We then jump into building survival shelters, to prepare for our survival trek. We'll spend two days and nights out in the woods of Hawk Circle, putting the skills we've learned to the test, in the field.
Campfire cooking skills, gathering, tracking, tree identification, carving and more will be experienced and covered, so you will have real field experience there also.
Here is a list of skills we'll be covering in this program:
Priorities of Survival
Debris Survival Shelters
Grass Mats and Insulation
Flint & Steel Fire Making
Bow & Drill Fire Making
Making Jerky and Energy Bars
Developing a Spring for Water
