WINTER WOODLAND SURVIVAL COURSE-14 DAY
This is a 14 day class set in typically the coldest/wettest time in our area. You will learn woodland survival methods that will keep you alive with almost NO gear. You will be allowed the clothes on your back, a water bottle and one knife. One legal trap and/or small caliber weapon will be provided at random times to the class for use at attempts of food procurement which will be decided by an instructor. An instructor will be on site 24/7 and completing the course along with you. You will shelter in primitive shelters that you build, procure water and fire from nature, scavenge and hunt for food and learn hunting and land navigation methods that are second to none. You will experience forced loss of finger dexterity and fine motor skills as well as have stressed and timed objectives. You will need a Tennessee small game hunting license, one stainless steel water bottle and one knife in addition to your personally chosen clothing. This course is recommended for those who have completed training elsewhere and wish to test themselves. This class will test your prior training schools teachings. This class does not allow for outside subsistence. There will be no cellphones, no trips to town, no outside contact whatsoever. This isn’t a camp. This isn’t a group primitive skills arts and crafts session. This class will take what you have learned elsewhere and push it beyond its limits and see just how self reliant you have been trained to be or actually are. You will learn realities of modern subsistence living as well as resource density levels and the practicality of living with the land in this modern age. If you have no prior training you will be paired with an instructor for the duration of the course in order to bring you up to the formally trained individuals levels.
