[h=2]Inland Hunter Course[/h]Tracking - Trapping – Animal Behaviour – Game Cookery – Preserving

Our early coastal ancestors would have taken advantage of the woodland found along the coastline as do we, previously lightly covered on our highly acclaimed Coast Hunter course, we have been asked by past clients to develop this course allowing for total immersion in the ways of the inland hunter.
Tracking is one element of following animals, along with dowsing for locating wildlife in the field. understanding the varying habits throughout the changing seasons is the key, understanding the animal and knowing where to find them, together with the feeding and breeding habits and you can start to build a clear picture of the possible movements, the final factor is the weather, both previous and immediate.
Whether in a survival situation or a long term off grid one, the skills acquired on this course will give you a full and comprehensive range of knowledge to take away with you, learnt practically in situation, in real time in the field and woods. Instructors on this course are professional practitioners in their field of expertise – Learn more than just basics from proven consultants.
After full grasping the mindsets of the animals and there behaviour we will only be shooting and catching them with trail cam’s, situated around the wild woodland that surounds our base camp in West Dorset - Trail cam – buck deer video clip at night.
Once we have established the best shooting/trapping spots and set the trail cams, (to be be collect the next day, then we can upload the footage on to the computer for instant viewing) its back to base camp to build your own simple combinations of traps using to hand resources from the woodland, understanding the benefits and differences between modern and natural improvised materials.
Game is provided for preparation and cooking and varies depending on availability and seasons. Learn how to skin, gut and prepare the meat for a combination of spit roasting, smoking and cooking in the wood fired ground ovens along with utilising different parts of the animal including hide preparation.
Accommodation is camping off grid in the wild woodland base camp, fully catered with combinations of game provided – feather and fur.
If you have previously experienced courses of this nature, our past clients feedback leads us to believe you will benefit from coming on this course, where a lifetimes worth of professional combined knowledge and practical proven experience is generously shared in an honest down to earth manner.
