    Default Anyone know of wilderness survival courses in MA?

    I've been wanting to take a wilderness survival course, but havent found too many offered from searching online. Have any of you taken a course that you could recommend. Preferably in MA or New England. If you have taken a course what sort of things were covered?

    A friend of mine offers such a course. Frank has studied with Tom Brown, and he's top notch.

    Also, give these guys a call:

    I did my Wilderness First Responder course with them many many moons ago. Not a 'survival' course per-se, but very comprehensive wilderness medicine course. Perhaps they have suggestions to do more.
    A clip is not a magazine, a mag is not a clip.
    Neither is a grip a stock, and "stock" does not mean grip.
    A bullet is not a cartridge, nor is the converse true.
    Folks should be more careful when they use the words they do.
    A revolver has a cylinder, but only one you see,
    and cylinders have chambers, five or six most commonly.
    I do not wish to nitpick, but improvement would be seen,
    if we could bring ourselves to say exactly what we mean.

    Thank goofycj7, i'll check that out as well.

    jmjkd- I want to get more into hiking this summer, so I'd like to learn basic survival skills, like building shelter, orienteering, first aid, etc. Information that would be useful for camping/ hiking.
