Fall 2021 Wilderness Bushcraft Semester Comes To A Close

We finished up the fall, 2021 Wilderness Bushcraft Semester yesterday. Now Moose Vegas is empty and the moose have the run of the place again – there was a big cow on the road this morning. It was our 53rd long term program, and we had a student on the course who wasn’t alive when we ran our first semester. Time flies.

I’ve got a week to clean up camp and track down some mulch hay before the weeklong Autumn Woodsman course starts, which will wrap up our year of field school programs.

Christopher took this picture of me while we were out on solos. It was a stunning sunrise, the kind that stays with you in your mind long after the actual event has passed. I’m grateful for it, and like many things in my life, feel fortunate to have experienced it. As we get close to wrapping up another year of programs, I’m grateful to our audience for seeing the value in what we do. Whether you were a student at the field school or an occasional reader of this blog, thank you.

    I have been doing these things way before I saw it on internet thanks to my daughter. I hunt ,fish, trap, trap for NH Fish and Game, NUISANCE ANIMALS.
    But I heard of your school and really want to attend the Maine Guide Course, as an old friend has a Hunting Guide and Camp Service in Maine, Ralph Merchant, Merchant Guide, bear hunts,been there for years, wondering is the class a constant 9 weeks or breaks in between, either way I’m saving up for class, I live for primitive skills ,and the outdoors, and am 47 years old now, and want to finish up my years outside.

  • Our semester courses are 9 straight weeks, but we take weekends off. Merchants camps are just down the road, small world.

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.
