Austere Bushcraft Cooking 2023 – CO

July 6, 2023 - July 9, 2023


This course focuses on solving the problem of meeting nutritional needs and avoiding foodborne illnesses in austere environments, meaning locations without safe food handling facilities or procedures. This course is designed to teach students the best practices in animal inspection, harvesting, field dressing, butchering and cooking, utilizing little to no modern equipment other than knives and saws. Successful completion of this course will enable students to be more nutritionally self-sustaining in austere locations and rely less on store bought supplies. They will also have a better understanding of safe food handling and storage practices in austere environments.

We will be humanely dispatching, field dressing, processing and cooking a domestic farm animal such as a goat or sheep. You will learn to properly butcher and prepare the animal from a highly qualified and certified butcher. This is a hands-on course, and we fully understand that the act of dispatching a living animal can seem daunting, and affects everyone differently. With that in mind, we do our best to provide a supportive teaching environment for everyone involved.
