Do you want to rely on someone else to make life and death decisions for you?
Wilderness Survival in Texas
We provide the knowledge and hands-on training to give the edge during any crisis.
You learn what is useful in nature. How to use it, prepare it, to supply the most basic survival needs. Consider plants. Some are edible, medicinal, and utilitarian. A common flower that slows or stops bleeding.
A root to numb a toothache. Tree bark that smells and tastes like root beer. And plant fiber so strong it make a strong bowstring. You will never view a flower, leaf, stalk, bush, stick, or a tree the same way again.
~Texas Survival Training Reviews
“Mark and his team are extremely knowledgeable and passionate about bushcraft and the outdoors. It is very apparent by the way they speak and teach their skills. I had a so much fun and learned so much. My experience with Mark far surpassed my expectations. I have spent years studying and researching these skills online and it doesn’t even compare to the few days I spent with Mark and his crew. I highly highly recommend you take this course. Marks program is great way to introduce and hone your outdoor skills.” ~Christopher Baron
“Mark. Just touching base with you again to let you know how great the experience was at the Texas camp. I learned a ton and gained an excellent foundation from which to build. I definitely take a different approach in the woods now and am much more a “part of the woods” as opposed to just being out there in the woods.” ~Jeff H.
“Dear Mark, I wanted to thank you again for a wonderful week, it was very enlightening, humbling and so interesting to get a small glimpse into your wealth of knowledge. I really walked away with more than I thought I would and it has really put a new perspective on things. I look forward to my next adventure with Lifesong!” ~Chris Watters.
Hi, Mark. This is Qiong. I attended the Texas survival camp last year and had a wonderful time. When people asked me about my best time in America, I always mentioned my experience during the camp. That was probably my most exciting and memorable adventure I have ever done. ~Qiong W.
