What is covered in the course? 

The focus of this course is to identify fish and animal habitats and acquire the nutritional resources we need to live. Through modern and primitive trapping and hunting devices and techniques, we will teach the proper way to locate, procure, and prepare food. It is important to note that our curriculum is still as useful today as it has been in the past to many hunters and fishermen. It is also a way of life for our instructors. They use these methods to put food on the table and provide for their families. Because our talented team of instructors use these techniques in more than a course setting, they are prepared to help students troubleshoot, prevail, and find the nutrition they need.

Our students learn how to travel, camp, and forage in the wilderness, exploring the bounties that nature provides. Experience self-sufficiency of a higher caliber. Learn to use your hands for crafting and creating tools, equipment, containers, and hunting weapons while gaining the skills to improvise using the environment. Our students also learn the differences between passive and active hunting and fishing techniques.


Eligibility Requirements: Students must be at least 12 years old. All students younger than 18 must be accompanied by a paid parent or legal guardian.
