Hunting: it is a part of us as human beings, and sadly, it is a dying art. The culmination of that timeless dance between predator and prey, the release of the arrow, and the taking of life, is but the final chapter in a long journey that one must take in order to be successful at traditional hunting. While modern weaponry may provide a shortcut, hunting with all handmade and/or primitive equipment requires skill, practice, dedication, and most of all: preparation.
1-Day Workshop: $150
This 1-day class will focus on the preparation needed for bow-hunting including:
*Understanding your quarry: track and trail reading
*Invisibility: Camouflage (both modern & natural), sound, and scent masking
*Where to hunt: spot setup & blinds
*Shot considerations & common pitfalls
The purpose of this course is to help the truly dedicated student with what can be a very daunting journey. Hunting in an ancient manner can be one of the most difficult, yet spiritually enlivening experiences in one’s life. This class will be taught with strong values regarding the purpose of hunting & understanding of the animal’s sacrifice. Please be aware that “macho” attitudes and lack of respect for wildlife will not be tolerated in this class.
