The new Midwest School of Bushcraft

Oct 23, 2006
Yo, guys.
I wanted to let all of you know about a new school that has just opened in the mid-west. (Heads up hardwoodsmen!)
It's the Midwest School of Bushcraft run by Terry Barney, you know him as Iawoodsman.
Terry is a former certified Air Force survival instructor and guide in the boundary waters area.
You can check out his bio here:
Instructor bio
He's the real deal guys. Just so you know I'm not in on this, it's all Terry's show. I posted it here for two reasons.
1. I have learned more from Terry in the past year than I have from my whole life in the woods. Stuff that is invaluable for a woodsman of any kind to know.
2. Dare I say this is a once in a lifetime opportunity to learn from a guy who has forgotten more about wilderness survival and bushcraft than I have known. There are lots of schools up north and out west but we don't have many that are of this caliber of instruction here in the mid-west.
I can guarantee you that if you decide to attend a class you will learn some stuff you've never seen before.

Not only all that but his classes are highly affordable (cheap!) and he's a hell of a nice guy. And he's a stand up guy, if he tells you he's gonna do something then you can take it to the bank.
If you're interested in attending you can check out his web site here:
