Hunting and Fishing
Hunting classes include instruction in the use of hunting tools such as archery, and knife and tomahawk throwing. We also offer classes where you can learn to make hunting tools like fishnet tying, flintknapping arrowheads, bamboo blowguns, and rivercane arrows, among others. In addition we offer classes in hunting techniques such as tracking, stalking, and solo bow hunting.
We always have at least a few classes on trapping. Examples include Bamboo Springtrap for Small Rodents; Figure-Four and Paiute Deadfall Traps; and more generalized classes on locating and setting simple traps and snares.
Traditional Living Skills
This is probably our broadest category, with the largest list of classes. Examples include Southeastern-style Moccasins, Blacksmithing, fire by friction classes such as Bowdrill 101, Practical Hide Tanning, Tumplines and Bedrolls, Stone Tool Production, Edge Tools Sharpening and Care, and many, many more!
Firefly has classes for everyone and for a vast array of interests.
