I've just got in from the beach. Would love to join you. I've just been to your site. Your normal coastal hunter course is for a weekend, is this on for a week? I can't commit to a week although I'd love to, i can do weekends. This is exactly what I want so I will be in touch. Thanks for the post.

Hello All,

I am thinking of combining the all ready popular Coastal Hunter Gatherer (modern day) survival course with the new Primitive Coastal Hunter Gatherer bushcraft course and think this would require 5/6 days, although it could be split into 2 2/3 day session (modern first, primitive second etc) I will put the exact course details on the web site asap, and post the page link, thank you for the initial responses, most encouraging :)

Indeed, I would probably be up for the week course. I have been itching to get up to Scotland and do some wild camping/foraging for a long while so this would a great course to do before I venture out :)

I think I mentioned that I would, if anyone wanted split the cost and course, for any one that could not make the 6 days? The logistic, ratio of 1 instructor to 3 students, shear scope of activities/skills and materials, unfortunately contribute to courses fee's, I am so confident about the course and my team, and going off past clients feedback that include instructors from leading UK bushcraft and survival schools, MOD survival instructors and thoughs that like most of been on many courses with a number of schools and teachers, say thats if you can find a similar course cheaper, I would personally pay the difference! Money is not our focus, and I would never normally turn any one away, or ever have done, for not being able to meet all the course fee, but unfortunately due to the exclusive private coastal access spot and resources we will be using for the 6 days, spaces are restricted to just 12 clients and 4 instructors and I am already taking deposits, please PM me if you would like to be considered for last minute reduced cost booking in the event one may be available?

Right my man on the south coast of Cornwall is on the case to get confirmation of the use of a private coastal woodland with fresh waterfalls, leading onto sand dunes and a secluded rocky reefed cove! Im proposing a 3 or 6 day Spring tide full moon course around the weekend in March from the 14th/19th - Coastal Hunter Gatherer - Fishing and Foraging. This way theres a course in the South and one in Scotland making it accessible for all, both in stunning locations and rich and diverse in resources.
