Wilderness Land Navigation (N101)

4 Days - $480

Map & Compass skills are the core of wilderness navigation. Technology may be used to verify location and other navigation data but should not be relied upon wholly. We teach military land navigation which includes using grid systems and plotting waypoints and course lines; this is much more advanced and involved than orienteering, which is using the map mostly for terrrain association (orienteering is essentially a subset of land navigation.) This skill set is critical to everyone who ventures into the wilderness or even the "occupied outdoors." Why? Because medical injury and becoming lost are two of the most common ways individuals find themselves in a survival situation. This course also includes the use of electronic devices to verify map and compass work. Come to Fox Kits Wilderness & Tactical Survival School's Wilderness Land Navigation Course. Stay found!
