- Food – During this phase you will learn more about animal trapping and how to skin various types of animals. You will be expected to not only trap an animal, but also skin, gut and cook the animal.
In addition, we will also teach more enhanced navigational skills, signalling skills, the ABC’s to survival and much more.
