"PREPARING YOU FOR THE UNEXPECTED BECAUSE THE UNEXPECTED IS ALL AROUND YOU"

– Craig “WG” Avery, Survivalist|Firearms Instructor|Bushcraft Practitioner|Veteran

At WG Bushkraft we practice more than just the skills needed to survive outdoors; we instill a survivalist’s mindset in our students that empowers them to think, plan, and act deliberately in order to thrive in environments most could not endure. We tap into your leadership DNA, push you to awaken your primal instincts, build your outdoor skills, and evolve you into a self-reliant soul.

We are “always practicing” Bushcraft apprentices, committed to refining our acquired skills while constantly creating new ones. “Bushcraft is about thriving in the natural environment, and the acquisition of the skills and knowledge to do so. Bushcraft skills include firecraft, tracking, hunting, fishing, shelter-building, navigation by natural means, the use of tools such as knives and axes, foraging, water sourcing, hand-carving wood, container construction from natural materials, and rope and twine-making, among others.” We recognize that when we stop learning, we start dying, and so we must always keep training.

Survival
Gear

Our core belief is that every person who heads out on the trail should respect “the unexpected”. We make or carry, light and easy to use, well thought out survival gear so that the unexpected isn’t also the unprepared.

Our Story

WG BUSHKRAFT was launched to teach the skills and mindset of self-reliance living, providing a refuge of thought to those who live with the mindset of  “respecting the unexpected”. WG BUSHKRAFT is committed to teaching you how to connect to the outdoors, “embrace your inner animal”, and thrive with little to no modern comforts. While “Bushcraft” is the study of all matter related to living “in the bush”, the word “kraft” is translated to “strength, force, energy”. So, our purposeful use of the “k” in craft is to highlight that when trained, you are a force in the bush, not merely “surviving” in the bush. “K” = knowledge, and knowledge is everything.
