WHAT WILL YOU LEARN?

BUSH SURVIVAL:
Bushcraft skills: starting fire with steel strikers (work wet or dry and one can substitute for local materials like chipped quartz and churt), creating shelter, warm bedding, navigating by sun, landmark and compass, what to do when lost, rigging shelter (lean-to or similar), coping with bleeding and natural medicine.

ANIMAL TRACKING:
Many animals will be on the move at this time as it’s a major feeding season, so it’s a good time for tracking. Spring ground is “springy”, making actual prints uncertain, but there are many other ways to tell what wildlife is in your area, what it’s doing and what it’s eating, Learn to analyze droppings, scrapes and other spoor to interpret wildlife activity.

CO-EXISTING WITH WILDLIFE:
Cliff is one of the few people on Earth who has been charged multiple times by grizzly and moose and been able to avoid using lethal force in each incident. At their homestead, Twa Corbies Hollow, Cliff and Daphne live successfully with mature coyote packs and black bears. We will study realistic co-existence strategies to live with wildlife, from how to manage encounters with potentially aggressive wildlife to how to deter wildlife from entering inhabited areas.

FOOD IDENTICATION:
Combine a day hike with tracking and foraging, getting stuff along the way.

OPTION OF OVERNIGHT!
