Ancestral Hunting School's mission is to connect students back with the land in an ethical and conscious way that leads them to self sufficiency, ecological understanding and radical accountability. Each session includes an online curriculum that prepares them for an in person experience that will prepare them to hunt, butcher and process on their own. All abilities and ages are welcome, under 18 must be accompanied by a paying adult (unless specified).
Requirements: We will be at almost 9000 feet and a variety of weather. Blazing hot sun and hail are not uncommon. Please be prepared (we will provide a gear list). Sleeping bag, ground mat, headlamp, water bottle, hat, dishes and utensils and warm clothes are a start. If you do not have these we can help source.
Primitive camping (well water, porta potty, no electricity)
The Primitive Rendezvous will offer a full complement of skill building workshops, time in nature and community building activities. Located on private land in the scenic South Park Valley of Colorado with plenty of access to public land, this is the place to learn the essential hunting skills and put them to the test without having the pressure to hunt. After this class students will be fully prepared to hunt on their own and will have the full complement of AHS curriculum and staff to guide them on their journey. You will receive instruction just like the flagship course with monthly zoom calls and instructions on how to apply for tags, how to get your hunter ed card, what rifle to choose etc. This is primitive camping that has well water and porta potty but there is no electricity. All participants will be living in community with one another in tipis. Basic camping gear required. Ages 11 and up (all children under 18 must accompanied by a paying adult)
