Hunting Skills Course

Bow hunting:

Hunting with a bow requires incredible amounts of skill, patience and presence. It brings together naturalist knowledge, movement, camouflage, heightened senses and awareness. It pushes us to grow in many ways and offers an opportunity for us to deepen our relationship with life, death and the responsibilities of taking the life of a wild creature.

Some of the topics covered:

As this program is not during hunting season, there will be no actual hunting during the course. You will learn some fundamental skills of hunting deer with a bow and arrow:

  • Hiking the land
  • Discussing tracks and signs
  • Set up
  • Strategy
  • Ecology
  • Safety
Camping conditions will be rustic:
This course is for people who have experience in camping. Be prepared to be autonomous for sleeping and eating outdoors. The facilities include a rustic campground in the woods- composting toilets, a few fire pits for cooking, and several large tarps set up in case of rain. We will be 150 meters from the parking area so be prepared to hike your camping gear in, and we’ll never be too far from the cars if you need to go back to get something. Bring plenty of simple food to cook over the fire and water. We can refill our jugs if need be. If you have a cooler, we can stash it in a nearby stream to keep it cool / we will have a few barrels available to help with this.
If you have a bow (self bow, compound or recurve) please bring it, as there will be some time to discuss archery gear and practice shooting.
