Advanced Way of the Hunter

Program Description:

This class expands on the Way of the Hunter class, bringing new hunting tools, techniques and strategies to the students.  Though no animals will be hunted during the class, students will get experience using the hunting tools they make on various targets.  Students will also learn new uses for animal parts and how they can aid a hunter.  Woven into this program is an emphasis of care taking, and making the Earth better through our taking.  Students will also make a thrusting/throwing spear with a stone spearhead.
