Gone Feral

"Primitive means 'first', not 'worst'."
                                                       -- Scott Silsby

We all have an indigenous past.  So to study indigenous skills is to remember, to relearn, or wake them once again.

To know the natural world in a primitive, indigenous way is as close to wild as the domesticated human animal can become.  And this world will never be the same once you've gone feral.

At Gone Feral, we practice and teach primitive technology, self-reliance, disaster preparedness, and survival skills in Boulder, Colorado.  We differentiate primitive living, Stone Age ways from 'survival' skills by placing them in context:  what we know of natural history, culture, and the human condition throughout time.  A time when daily life was survival.


Our greatest passion is teaching, tempered and honed by a severe love of the natural world.  Our workshops get your hands dirty, your brow sweaty, and your mind racing.

Serving Boulder and Beyond

Gone Feral is based in the Boulder Valley area of Colorado.  We serve the city of Boulder, Boulder County, and Beyond!  Our workshops and video production services will travel to you:  from Atlantic to Pacific, from Seattle to the Serengeti.




Learn how to apply primitive living skills to your modern day life!
