Come and join us in the woods to celebrate your Stag party with a day of time-honoured manliness:
Based on the South Downs near Brighton, expect a day of great banter and hands on outdoor action. The stag will receive a special gift from the HGC team as a ‘Stagmento’ from his time in the woods.
Itinerary – AM
Arriving At HGC HQ at 10am for a run through the order of play: The day is designed for your group to learn the basics of self-sufficiency and put them to the test!
We begin at HQ where you will learn how to skin and butcher an entire deer for your lunch, then get mincing to make burgers and skewer up the meat to cook over the fire with a selection of HGC marinades and wild taster dishes.
Once the knife work is out of the way, you’ll be able to sit back and have a few pints (we provide 5 gallons of cider or Ale for the day). After eating as much venison as you can, it’s off into the wild to identify & taste some of Mother Nature’s bounty from the hedgerows.
Itinerary – PM
After walking off the deer, you will embark on a tutorial of basic fire lighting, from fire by friction through to doing the old Ray Mears and blowing a tinder bundle into flames.
Then it is time for the HGC challenge, which only the best man (or men) are allowed to know about…the bush tucker trial where the stag will have to eat his way through insects, squirrel cock, deer testicle and fish bits.
Hunter Gather Cook will unleash the hunter-gatherer within and ensure you learn pick up plenty of tips for your next adventure into the wild!
