What is the Basic Coastal Hunter Gatherer course?

Modern and primitive Coastal Hunter Gatherer courses combined into one basic 2 day bushcraft course.

There is a lot to take in, so this course is worth doing before going on to complete the 5 day Coastal Hunter Gatherer course – which covers even deeper bushcraft skills, making all your own kit and focussing more on bushcraft tools with skill.
