Autumn Woodsman Course November 4-10 | Cold-Weather Training With No Snow

The Autumn Woodsman is a new field school course this year, designed to provide people with skills for cold weather without deep snow. There’s a heavy emphasis on axe, saw and knife use, appropriate fire skills, shelter construction, using tents and stoves to create warm, comfortable spaces, as well as seasonally-appropriate crafts such as making sturdy, functional saw frames from materials found in the woods.

Participants can expect to become skilled at managing a cooking fire and learn the skills of setting up pot suspension systems for fixed and moving camps. We’ll be cooking over fire every day, whether it be an open fire, a rocket stove, a tent stove or a wood-fired cook stove. We’ll also cover other wilderness skills such as navigation with map and compass, barehand navigation, making field-expedient cordage, and a few small handcrafts.

We’re excited for the course. There are a few spots still open, but they won’t last, so if you’re interested get in touch soon!

Anything that appears to be an error in spelling or grammar is actually the author’s clever use of the vernacular, and as such is not an error, but rather a carefully placed literary device demonstrating prodigious artistic prowess.
