Primitive Craft/Survival Skills Seminar

Primitive Craft/Survival Skills Seminar


 Join author, outdoorsman and naturalist L. Woodrow Ross for an unforgettable day of hands-on exposure to primitive survival skills and crafts that will prepare you to be a better woodsman. Learn how to flint knap, make primitive arrows, utilize deer sinew to haft projectile points, and start a fire with flint and steel and with a bow drill.

You will depart better prepared to adapt to the natural environment and utilize primitive skills to enjoy the wilderness rather than feel threatened by it. Learn to make cordage from natural fibers and sinew. Try your hand at using an atlatl and learn to make one easily for your own use. Use a rabbit stick and see how the primitive cultures took small game. Experience using a Cherokee blow gun for the first time.  In addition, other useful topics will be covered.

We are offering one day seminars at this time for an introductory price of $85.00. The session will begin at 8:30 a.m. and end at 5:00 p.m. A lunch of burger or hot dog, fries and drink, this will be available for $7.00. We will need to know in advance how many would like to purchase lunch so that preparations can be made. Snacks and drinks will be available, but you are welcome to bring your own. The class size is limited to 15 so that each person may experience a quality, hands-on experience.

  1. Unique Outdoor Survival Skills

    Don't you find it ironic that even with all this scandalously expensive education, people today know so little?

    If they can't even fix their car, how are they supposed to handle a - let's say - long term food shortage?

    You can't possibly hope they'd know how to garden and produce their own food, save seeds for next year, and use leaves plowed under to fertilize the soil.

    Not to mention trapping, catching, skinning and cooking a rabbit...

    These may seem advanced outdoor survival skills now, but back in the days, they were merely called "Living".

    Watch this short video now and discover a set of unique and fantastic survival skills used and perfected by our ancestors.

    Don't wait for the next crisis to hit and live to regret you had the chance to learn these skills but didn't.

    Thanks again.
