Reading books and watching videos on survival can be beneficial, but an outdoor survival lifestyle requires a hands-on approach. Complex skills also require instruction and dedicated practice. Outdoor Life has compiled a list of some of the best hunting and survival schools you can attend. Mountain Shepherd Adventure School took the number one slot, located in Virginia. This school offers a wide variety of courses, and offers women-only classes and summer camps for girls. A veteran’s class, Byron Kerns Survival, also made the list as he hosts courses that focus on escape and evasion. Other schools to make the list are Pathfinder, Ancient Pathways, and Jack Mountain Bushcraft School.
