Hunter Field Skills Workshop
EatWild invites you to participate in a three-day field skills development workshop at the Singing Lands Ranch in the heart of BC’s grassland country. Participants will have the opportunity to learn and practice the field skills needed to become confident and successful hunters. The Singing Lands Ranch offers an amazing place to learn about wildlife and the habitat that they live in. Participants will build a hunting camp, learn to get around in wilderness, and sneak up on wildlife. Meals will feature wild meat cooked by our instructor, Dylan Eyers.
“The Eatwild Hunter Training Skills workshop with Dylan was an invaluable learning experience which has given me the practical skills and confidence to begin hunting for my own food. I would recommend it to everyone who is interested in taking their food into their own hands.”
“EatWild provided me with increased confidence and skills in both being an outdoorswoman and potentially hunting my own food. The facilitation, setting, food and company was amazing, the weekend couldn’t have gone better.”

Orienteering is an essential skill to competently find your way around when foraging, hunting, hiking and exploring in the woods of British Columbia. The EatWild orienteering workshop will help you build the confidence and skills you need to wander around in wilderness, navigate terrain, explore habitat, and confidently make it back to camp safely.
Hide Tanning Workshop
This work shop will take place over three days. On the first day we will start the process, using hides that you will have begun soaking a week in advance, scraping the hair layer off the hide, wringing the hides through a tanning solution and beginning to stretch them out. The second day will be full-on hide stretching- keeping the hides supple as they dry to ensure a nice finished product. With luck the hides will be completely dry by the end of the day and we will then sew them up into bags so they will be ready to smoke. On the third day we will smoke the hides, finishing the process and leaving you with a finished product that can be made into bags, moccasins or clothing.
Stay tuned for new workshops, and drop us a line if there’s something you’d like to learn about. We will be updating these workshops as “events” on this page, so please “like” us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter so that you don’t miss out.
