The course focuses on solving the problem of meeting nutritional needs and avoiding foodborne illnesses in austere environments to include unsecured locations without safe food handling regulations and practices in place. The course is designed to teach students the best techniques in animal inspection, harvest, evisceration and cooking utilizing little equipment with both primitive and modern technologies. Successful completion of this course will enable students to be more nutritionally self-sustaining in austere locations and rely less on store supplies. They will also have a better understanding of safe food handling and storage practices in austere environments.
We will be dispatching, field processing and cooking a domestic farm animal (goat or sheep). You will learn to properly butcher and prepare the animal from a highly qualified and certified butcher.
The survival training is very intensive and is almost entirely hands on with very little lecture time. The advanced survival training is not so difficult that family and older children can’t attend though. These are skills that your friends will be impressed with the next time you go camping or hunting and these are skills that tend to stick with you for a lifetime. The skills are taught in a laid back survival camp environment. Self Reliance skills truly give you an empowered feeling because after your training you will be confident to walk into any environment and take care of yourself, your friends, and your family. If you need advanced survival training to increase your bushcraft skills and overall comfort, then this is the perfect course for you!
Water will be provided but you may ring your own food as desired. Other food will either be harvested from natural resources or be obtained during the butchering/cooking/preservation portion of this training class. We recommend quick field expedient meals such as our Camp Ready Meals or MRE’s. They can quickly be made at our primitive camps and won’t slow down the learning process. You can also purchase food locally once you get here. Walmart and several local eateries are within a close drive away.
Bring your gear with you. We do not provide you with gear unless you purchase it from us ahead of time. You don’t need much equipment for our courses, though good equipment does speed the learning process up greatly! You don’t have to buy our gear to attend the course, but you need survival gear of equivalent quality.
Fixed blade knife preferable a bushcraft style knife, outdoor clothing, boots, folding saw, paracord, overnight camping gear, small backpack.
