High level course outline:
This class will cover the following topics:
Attendees will be given the opportunity to practice all of the newly learned skills including the taking and processing of small game for one of their meals. We ask that you do not bring a tent as we will be utilizing unconventional shelter techniques. Bringing a bivy sack or bug netting is advised. In the colder months take into account weather conditions and packing appropriate clothing and sleeping equipment.
Bring any additional equipment or tools which you would like to experiment with during the course. Bring food to support 2 days worth of meals. Mountain House or MRE type meals work good as they pack nicely. Ultralight camp stoves are allowed. Stainless steel “canteen cup” or “camp cup” work well for warming / boiling water over a wood fire. Bring water- at a minimum 100 oz, a water bladder works well but also have a wide mouth water bottle of some kind. We will have access to water onsite for refilling your reservoirs.
This class will not be a tactical survival class, utilization of white light flashlights is allowed, it would be preferred that you use a filter such as a red or green lens over the light in order to preserve natural night vision in our eyes. Head lamps are very handy as you will be needing to work with both hands often.
Any gear you want to try out. Feel free to bring along any other equipment which you would like to utilize during the course. Keep in mind you will be carrying everything on your back. Don’t go crazy and throw everything including the kitchen sink in there.
Items such as water purification systems, tablets or other products are a good example of something you may want to try out in field conditions. You will not be returning to your vehicles until course completion. Class size is limited to 20 people. Reserve your spot with full payment or a deposit.
