INTRODUCTION TO AND ADVANCED PRIMITIVE SKILLS
This class will take you from a complete novice and transform you into a skilled primitive skills enthusiast with widely varied skills training. From the art of primitive skills to the hands on work of subsistence living skills and self reliance lifestyles. Most importantly we will discuss and examine legal issues of primitive traps, the reality,or lack thereof, of use of these skills as a part of daily life, wildlife and human population densities, actual wilderness availability as well as dietary issues in attempting subsistence living or “living from the land”.
