A Free Day Course in Traps, Snares & Game Prep


Saturday 12th January 2013 - 9am-3pm
Devon (near Exeter)

Now Full

A wonderful opportunity offered by a new up and coming Bushcraft School "Serious Outdoor Skills" this one day course is kindly being offered free of charge at their Woodland site in Devon (near Exeter).

This day course will cover the importance of trapping in a survival situation, covering several traps and snaring techniques along with some game preparation.


 Do not put your name down for this course unless you are absolutely sure you can make it otherwise you will prevent someone else from using this great opportunity.

This course is now full, there 14 participants going.

Seeing as a few of the Natural Bushcraft crew are attending we will probably report back with photos and a blog-post etc. about the event.

If you're sure you can make it and would like to reserve your place then email  This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it  be sure to let them know you heard of this event on

This course will run regardless of weather conditions unless it is really extreme, then course participants will be notified to inform them.

Hot drinks will be provided but participants will need to bring their own packed lunch.
