The Primitive Standard course is the prerequisite course for all other VaraVild courses (except for the eCourses). I believe true survival (earth living) can not be learned as just a set of lifeless physical skills. This course gives you a very rich base in earth living skills and ties it all together in a single philosophy: Awareness and tracking are at the foundation of living with Earth Mother.
Awareness: Nature observation, connecting with nature, fine tuning the senses, intuitive consciousness and perception etc. Tracking: Identification, aging, analysis, pressure releases, tracking process, tracker philosophy, etc. Fundamental earth living skills: Shelter craft, fire craft (primitive and modern), water and purification, cutting tools. Survival: Survival techniques, mentality, gear, bushcraft survival, preparation, EDC, STOP etc. To view this site as it was intended, please consider upgrading to a modern browser.In your current browser, some pages may not function or display correctly. Winter can be tough for mammals and birds that do not hibernate or migrate to warmer climes.
In towns and cities, starlings and other species roost close to heat sources – Christmas lighting is ideal.
Red deer stay on slopes where the snow is thinnest, thereby reducing the depth to which they sink when walking and making it easier to forage. Wind poses problems by accelerating heat loss, so most birds and mammals seek shelter during windy conditions. Red deer, mountain hares and ptarmigan seek slopes that are sheltered from strong winds, thereby reducing the energetic costs of thermoregulation. Foxes and other carnivores are nervous in the wind, since they cannot rely on their hearing. Small mammals and birds have high energy demands that increase in winter to help keep them warm. On a cold night, small birds can lose up to 10 per cent of their bodyweight trying to keep warm. For many mammals, rain poses a bigger problem than cold, since wet fur loses its heat insulation. In the wetter west, brown hares are smaller and breed less successfully than in the east, because they expend more energy on staying dry and warm in  the rain.

Kelly Galloup demonstrates why it is a great idea to hire, or at least consult an expert or guide at a fly shop when fishing a new area. This means you need to be aware of the natural dynamics of your surroundings and the impact you have on it. You will discover the skills and knowledge to find and use water, start and manage fires, find food, create shelters and take care of yourself. Physical skills are very important but body, mind and spirit all need to be on the job together. The course will give you a solid foundation in each of our four main course tracks: awareness, tracking, earth living and survival. For example, in order to eat you need to be able to trap and in order to trap you need to be able to track in order to track you need to be aware. Here are some of the strategies that they use to cope with cold, wind, rain and lack of food. Its effectiveness as an insulator increases with the length of the fur, which serves to hold a layer of inert air close to the skin.
In fact, the problem faced by foxes is not staying warm but overheating when they are active. Voles tend to stay under snow, which provides an insulating blanket; wood mice tend to run around on the snow surface. Since small birds and mammals cannot reduce their food intake, a prolonged spell of bad weather can lead to high levels of mortality. During winter they avoid rain by living at ground level  (rather than climbing in the grass stalks as they do in summer) and seek sheltered dry banks and hay ricks to overwinter.

He covers everything from keeping your hands warm to presentation to get on the trout in winter conditions.Those are some handy tips from a Montana expert on keeping comfortable and getting the most out of your winter midge fly fishing.
More importantly, you will find these are based in your unconditional connection to Nature and your natural awareness. You will learn how and why they are all equally important for true survival (Earth Living). There are many more such examples that demonstrate that our four main tracks can never be separated. After this course you can immerse yourself in specific topics and still take with you the understanding how all Old Way living skills are all one and the same thing: true survival or Earth Living.

During the summer season you will sleep in a hammock-tarp sleeping system or light weight tent. Drifting midges with the rod tip high is a great way to get down in front of those trout that are resting and a little more selective on what they are going to take as they are preserving precious energy in the colder water temperatures. Knock snow off before entering shelter, or leave outer clothing at the entrance to avoid melting snow which wet gear and clothing. This course makes sure that you will understand the overall philosophy and terminology we use in all of our advanced courses. During the winter we can help to arrange simple and cheap group accommodations but you are free to arrange your own.
Instead of accomplishing tasks by following procedures you will start to track the desired outcomes! Emergency Snowshoes(to get to safety without exhaustion in knee deep snows) Cut two stocky branches about 3 feet long Fir tree with plenty of small green branches Tie one branch to each foot at the front end of the branch. Emergency Fire in Snow(to keep warm, boil water, cook meal, and for signaling) Hanging firewood fire for warmth.
Candle Light Animal Fat oil Water Purification Techniques(for drinking and food preparation) Boil water for 3~5 minutes plus additional one minutes per every 1000 feet of elevation. While waiting for the snow to harden, remain active in order to stay warm, prepare a meal, collect some boughs, get a fire going. Keep Boots: If it's freezing cold, wrap your boots and water bottle in a plastic bag and take them into your sleeping bag (if you have one). Construction a€“burrow a small entrance tunnel then dig a chamber right angles up the entrance. Snow Pit Trench Shelter(for open area with sufficient snows depth) Location a€“Flat area away from trees and big rocks.
Emergency Signaling(Most air searches are done from 200 to 500 feet.) Needs to be visible from 200~500 feet.
Post flags and make markings to get rescuers attention and lead them to your shelter entrance.
