    Win a Hunter Gatherer course place

    A special chance for bushcraft UK members to win a place on the Wilderness Survival Skills 10 day Hunter Gatherer Course this August 7th to the 17th

    You can see more about the course here and for your competition entry you need to answer just 3 questions.

    1. What would you be making out of buckskin and rawhide?
    2. What's the name of the female instructor on the Wilderness Survival Skills website?
    3. What will you make sharp tools out of?

    As part of the agreement you'll need to write a review of the course for the site

    You obviously need to be available between the course dates and able to get to the course location/meeting point.

    Entries should be made to competition@bushcraftuk.com and have Hunter Gatherer Course competition in the Subject.

    Please include your full name, forum name, address and phone number.

    Good luck to you all and happy competing

    Absolutely gutted - looks a fantastic course but can't even enter as committed to something at work
    One day I might grow up - but I hope not

    Nonsense! They won't make you run 10 miles a day! So long as you can do a bimble paced couple of miles, and it will be a leisurely pace I'm sure, then you'll do just fine. I did a course with WSS just a few weeks back and it was fantastic, and they have an opt out clause if you don't feel you can do something. There is no pressure to do anything you don't want to do, if you have doubts then send Joe an email, he'll put your mind at ease.

    I'll put my review of their Wilderness Awakening course up soon, it'll give you an idea of how pleasurable their courses are. You'll not regret having a go, I promise you.

    I won't enter, although you don't have a clue how hard it is not to! The course I did with WSS is one of the best weeks of my life, I've never been so stress free and I learnt quite a deal. I'll put a review up in the correct place so that people can get a taste of how the courses are run by Joe and his instructors. The Hunter Gatherer course will be very different to the Wilderness Awakening course, but you are guaranteed top notch instruction. If you have any concerns as to your suitability for attending any of WSS courses, send an email as Joe is a very approachable fellow and will put your mind at ease.

    You're gonna have so much fun TeeDee. If you have any worries about kit, etc. then give Joe a call as he is really helpful. And enjoy yourself, although I'm sure you don't need us to tell you that!

    I don't think its jammy at all.

    I think it must be Gods way for making amends for all the times she managed to drop me right in the brown sticky stuff.!!




























    Seriously , If God exists, there is NO-WAY its going to be a guy , just think of all the multi-tasking and remembering peoples birthdays and important dates.


    Besides , I've got a thing for chicks with power.....





    Ok.Ok!! I admit it ., Its jammy!!!
