'Hi Joe,

Yet another great weekend with you guys, my hands were sore on the Sunday from all the weavin and whittlin. I left the weekend having carved a maul, spatula, spoon, pot hanger, weaved a willow basket and a whole lot of knowledge. You and Glenn both know your stuff and can carve beautiful spoons too, I'm so jealous. A great value for money course. I would definitely recommend your courses to others.

Thanks again'

'I had a fantastic time over the weekend, still tired mentally and physically.  My (was) non-existent plant knowledge has now gone up 1000%.  Your three new instructors were great by the way, informative friendly and enthusiastic.

Could write tons more about - just superb value. Thanks again!'

'Just to let you know I had a really, really great weekend.  I learnt so much my brain aches (in a good way).  Glenn & Greg did a top job.'

'Hi Joe

- the Bushcraft Weekend was amazing! I was looking forward to the weekend but had no idea how much I'd enjoy it.  It was impressive that the team managed to fit so many activities into the short time whilst giving a good insight into each subject.

Big thankyou to Glenn, Greg, Zoe & Matt - their passion for bushcraft was obvious and very inspiring.'

'Hi Joe

Just a quick line to thank you and Glenn for the fantastic weekend. I know

everyone present enjoyed every minute, even the gory bits!

The talk so far is not if but when we will do the next course.

So until then thanks again to you both.'

'Hi Joe & Glenn,

Just a quick note to say thanks so much for the weekend. I had a great time and I'm sure that the birthday boy did too! I felt we achieved
and learnt so much over the weekend that it seemed more like several days than 48 hours.

I ate food that I'd not tried before, and when it was cooked outside it tasted just so much better. We ate like kings!

Many, many thanks for a fantastic weekend, I'm sure that you'll see me and the others back some time, just let me get the smell of fire
out of all my pores and get some rest first....'

'Hi Joe,

We had a fabulous weekend with Deer in a day and foraging, really really good and Glenn and Antony were excellent, so much knowledge between them!

I spent yesterday boning out two deer and trying to squeeze it all in the freezer, stock too from the bones – should keep us going for a while!

Thanks for everything.'

Patricia, Deer In a Day & Wild Food Forage

'Hi Joe, Glenn & Antony were fantastic, instantly likeable, worked very well together and were overflowing with information, enthusiasm and patience.  Their method of delivery was like no other course I've ever attended, it flowed perfectly and there was no rush to end.  I would thoroughly recommend this course to anyone wanting to learn how to butcher a large animal in the field.  It is excellent value, especially as each participant gets to bring home some real food from a trip to the woods.  Just as it used to be.'

Tim, Deer In a Day

'The skills we covered have now sunk in and I feel much more confident with them.  I still maintain that the way you guys run the courses is about the best I have experienced.  True you experience tiredness and fatigue and sometimes need to be pushed a little at times but this is all within a safe and supportive environment.  What some might consider to be few topic areas,  I feel to be the best balance of dedicating sufficient time to master each of the skills and cover the skills that would ACTUALLY give you a fair chance of 'survival in the wild' , if ever one were to find their self in such a position.'

'Dear Joe, Glenn & Zoe

Thank you so much for EVERYTHING!

It was a real pleasure to meet such nice people as yourselves and the other folks on the course and to be allowed to learn about the woods in such a beautiful place.  The trip back was exhausting but we still had a smile on our faces from all the positive energy of the weekend.  It was a real pleasure to learn so much from people who are so passionate about what they do.  My mind is still reeling from all the information of the weekend and I am walking around looking at every plant I see to see if I recognise any.'

'Hi Joe and Glenn,

Just wanted to drop you guys a quick line to say thanks for a brilliant weekend! I've been keeping my eyes peeled for pheasants around London just in case I can wing one, and then barbecue it in the kitchen at work, but no luck so far...I think everyone had a really good time, and it was a really enjoyable mix of activities, some of which I'm hoping to be able to remember next time I'm off camping somewhere. I've already had one colleague ask for more info about it, so I hope you'll be getting some more business soon!

Again, thanks for a fun and educational weekend - next time we'll have to get you guys out in Salisbury the night before as well!'

'Hi Joe,

I will second Tom's email of thanks. I had an absolutely fantastic weekend and would thoroughly recommend it to others - you made it especially good for a social style of weekend with the varied activities and the "optional" level of involvement. (especially apt for the few hours where I was flagging!)  Can't wait to see some of the photos and to put to use some of the good skills - Tom - some wild camping this summer eh?

Thanks again,

Nige - 24 hour bushcraft stag do

p.s. And thanks to you Tom for finding Joe and Glenn!'

'Dear Joe and Zoe

Just a brief and huge thank you for the weekend.
It was truly wonderful-we learned so much from you and loved being
outside in the beautiful forest.

You are both great teachers - quietly imparting some of the treasure
trove of your knowledge in such a communicative and generous way.
I'm already looking forward to the next courses.

Until the next time'

'Hello Joe, many many thanks to you and Glenn for a really great day last Saturday.

I was very much looking forward to the day and it well exceeded my hopes/expectations. You and Glenn both teach through what I will call 'the absorption method' ie we all enjoyed taking on what we were being shown. You run the course very well and I do have a pretty good idea of how much logistical preparation goes into an event like this. Quite aside from the fact that we both love venison this was a skill learned that I hope to put to future use.'

'Absolutely fantastic weekend, so thoroughly enjoyed myself and learned so much.  A great, great experience, thankyou.'

'Hi Joe

I’m sure Tim thanked you on Sunday but I just wanted to thank you myself for the brilliant weekend Tim’s just spent with you and Glenn.  From everything he’s told me it sounds like he had a fantastic and fascinating time.  With everything you packed in, the weekend was excellent value for money and it didn’t escape Tim’s notice just how hard you and Glenn had to work in the background to make sure the weekend was a success for everyone.

Thank you again, and wishing you both every continued success with your business.'

'Joe,

Many thanks for a wonderful weekend, both to you and the team, I thought the cooking was wonderful, particularly on Saturday night!

Thanks again.'
