You’ve found yourself stranded in the wilderness, it happens to more than 2,000 people every year. Do you have the skills to survive? Wilderness Survival and Fishing takes you through the four basic necessities of survival: shelter, water, fire and food with an extra emphasis on sustenance fishing and modern fishing techniques. Students will explore multiple fire methods, covering how to make fire at night and in different shelter types. They will also learn water procurement and filtration, as well as becoming familiar with local plant life that can be beneficial for nutrition or medicine.
Students will also learn traditional fishing methods, covering sustenance fishing, providing a new perspective for even some of the most experienced fishermen. While many people know how to work a fishing pole, they haven’t honed a well-rounded set of skills to truly put enough food on the table if ever in a survival situation.
Takeaway: Upon completion students will have the knowledge to provide for your most essential survival needs, think strategically about steps necessary to staying alive and take action to save their lives and those of their party, should they ever become stranded in the wilderness, and have some new and improved fishing skills.
