The theme of the days training was Wild Meat and it's preparation. To coin a phrase from Respected Bushcraft Instructor, Patrick McGlinchey, we wanted to provide "Something from the Land, the Air and the Water". To this end, we had Rabbit, Pheasant and Trout for the students to work with. After getting a long log fire going, we proceeded with a talk about the importance of meat in the survival diet and then got stuck into the preparation of the wild meat.

Unfortunately, at the moment, I am having a few problems uploading additional pictures. When the problem is resolved, I'll add some more images from what was a really enjoyable day.
