The BDS Stalkers Survival Course

PLEASE NOTE THIS COURSE IS EXCLUSIVE TO THE BRITISH DEER SOCIETY MEMBERSHIP

Woodland Ways have teamed up with the British Deer Society to offer a 1 day course introducing people to the four main elements of bushcraft and survival; fire, food, shelter and water, with an emphasis on safety whilst Deer Stalking.

This course- unique to the British Deer Society, includes "The stalkers survival kit"... a comprehensive review of survival equipment and harnessing from nature to enable the stalker to remain in a wilderness location comfortably for an overnight or longer stay.

The course is run for one of two specific environments, the hill, and the woodland.

There are 4 Distinct Modules to the course:

  1. Fire lighting- The importance and uses of fire, emergency
    preparedness, chemical, solar, electrical and friction ignition, tinders and fire lays
  2. Shelter- The importance of Shelter to the human species, natural shelter construction and design, emergency carry shelter
  3. Water- how to source and make water safe for human consumption, and why
  4. Food- a look at edible and medicinal plants in your environment (This presumes that a stalker will already be conversant with game preparation!)

Join us for a fun, informative and potentially life saving course. Please qoute your deer society membership number in the notes section of your booking. For more information on The British Deer Society please click here.
