The truth is, you will never completely learn to enjoy the outdoors, if like so many others you have a fear of being lost. Who wouldn’t love the adventure of hiking off of a beaten trail? Have you ever wanted to go completely cross country to get away from a busy road and into more remote, wildlife abundant and less populated locations? Thousands of people will never get to experience these adventures because they lack the necessary Navigation Skills.  Hundreds of other people will become lost each year and many will die because they attempted these adventures and found themselves lost, scared and alone without  proper Compass or Map Reading Skills necessary to reach safety. Many people rely on GPS navigation with their lives but GPS Training and Navigation only works if the gps works. But they are electronic and it's possible that they will break and they fail.
For those who love the outdoors or want to learn how to hunt, it is nearly impossible to become a successful outdoors person, or hunter, if you are always going into the wilderness with a fear of being lost. This means you go in after daylight and leave before dark because you are afraid of being lost in the wilderness. Simply put, you just spent most of your time and money hunting when and where you won’t find many animals. You need to go where the animals go which is often far from any road access. And you need to be on the animals time schedule which often means you need to be far away from your car when the sun comes up and when it goes down. The only way to do this comfortably is to have proper Navigation Skills through the wilderness both in the daylight and the dark.

Importance of Wilderness Survival Skills

Each and every year hikers, berry pickers, hunters and outdoor enthusiasts of all kinds venture into the wilderness with total disregard to safety and no more that the clothes they are wearing. Although this is a poor decision, for many this has never been a problem. For many others a normal day's hike becomes their worst nightmare and often leads to a miserable death. There is absolutely no reason that a person should walk into the wilderness or even go on a simple family hike without first being prepared with the modern essentials needed for an emergency. An injury, bad weather, getting turned around or lost. I could share dozens of stories of how I have saved lost hikers and hunters and how I have personally needed and used Outdoor Survival Skills  to survive in the wilderness when it matters most. If you are new to the outdoors, or lack the proper training, then our modern day Wilderness Survival Skills Training Course is just what you need. 

Do you love nature, but not enough to be alone in it? Is your significant other a weekend warrior or even a die-hard hunter and is asking you to come along? Or best of all, have you ever just wanted to go for a walk in the peacefulness of the woods but are not sure how to take care of yourself if you were to get turned around or separated from others? Well don’t panic (first rule of the outdoors), we have the class for you. In this all female class, you will learn Compass and Map Reading Skills, How To Start a Fire, How to Build a Survival Shelter and much more. We will give you the Basic Survival Skills for Surviving in The Wilderness  overnight.
