“It was Chris’s passion for what he speaks about that pulled me in and kept me coming back. His personal stories of hunting, foraging, and survivalist adventures, were woven seamlessly into his teachings in ways that made everything seem possible. His questioning style brought me to my own conclusions and taught me to look for answers in nature…” – Anna Kiiskinen
