I came with vast experience....and it was STILL amazing!
Deer butchery course...
Getting out of my car and walking through the gate, I could see a big Viking looking guy stood by the fire with his dog in the process of making a brew... I was breath taken with the setting and set up and we hadn't even spoke yet!! WHAT A PLACE!!!
Within 5 mins of meeting Jamie I knew we was going to get along just fine! Extremely friendly, laid back and he oozes experience in what he is doing.
I already have a vast back ground of experince in Deer stalking/ Hunting/ Bushcraft and purely wanted to learn more on the butchery side of preparing Venison for the table... after a good few coffees and some story telling between us both Jamie egged us on to get started.
Within 10 mins I was learning new skills and knowledge off Jamie and I was constantly encouraged by him throughout the day. He is a brilliantly laid back but at the same time very charismatic instructor, any age/experience group would have a brilliant time learning any skills from him.
We covered a lot of knife skills and jointing the meat within the morning, in the afternoon we covered choosing best cuts and cooking (best bit).
To sum it up... Sorry telling, laughing, inspiring tales, coffee, scenery, new skills eating and MORE!
Jamie and his family are working/living the DREAM !
Take you friends!!! family!!! For an AMAZING day out!
I'll definitely be going back!
