INTRODUCTION TO HUNTING
PLEASE NOTE: If you do not see your confirmation email immediately after enrollment please check your spam folder. This email will contain class details.
Hunting is an ancient skill that binds us together as humans through thousands of years of common ancestral heritage. Tapping into the ancient skills of stalking, pursuit, connection, and quietness of mind, stirs something inside of us that is quite profound.
Hunting is challenging and requires dedication and mentoring that has traditionally been passed on through family members. Unfortunately, if you didn’t grow up in a hunting family or don’t have a close relative to teach you, it can be intimidating to try to figure all this out on your own. But don’t fret, we’re here to help!
While you won’t leave this class a master hunter by any means, as that pursuit takes years of practice, we will teach you everything you need to know to get started and set you up for success.
