Survival Trapping & Field Butchery

This is a very unique and exciting experience. Primitive trapping techniques were utilized by indigenous hunter-gatherers the world over as a means to procure food sustainably. Wild game is often the primary source of nutrients in a wilderness survival situation, especially in winter.

Our expert Bushman Rob will teach you modern trapping techniques, you will learn all the do’s and don'ts of trapping and the important field safety information.

The fun begins when you head into the woods to forage materials to build traps. Rob will give you practical hands-on advice on making primitive traps from carved sticks and natural plant fiber cordage. You will learn various knife and cordage techniques and the best way to make a natural survival trap.

After returning to camp, you will join Wild Chef Dan and cook some wild game over the fire. It will be something seasonal & delicious like rabbit, pigeon, pheasant or squirrel. Rob & Dan will teach you basic field butchery skills and give you the opportunity to skin or pluck your catch.

This experience is suitable for those aged 14+. All children must be accompanied by a participating adult.
