Last year Patrick McGlinchey (Backwoods Survival School) and I ran a survival course in my home valley in Telemark, Norway. We arrange one this year too in the end of September.
A list of some of what was covered last year:
- Bowdrill fire with natural cordage
- Trout fishing with bare hands
- Skinning and butchering, small game and moose
- Fish spears and spearing
- Making nets
- Moose ear pouches
- Basic flintknapping
- Skin boat (coracle)
- Seine netting
I can not guarantee that the exact same subjects will be taught this year. BUT I would go as far as saying that I guarantee that we catch trout and if it turns out like last year, we’ll catch loads of them! I think we caught about 500 brown trout then.
Photos by a participant last year can be found here.
If you think this sounds exciting, feel free to contact Patrick through this link.Regards
