Food procurement deals with the concept that you will most likely be in the survival situation for an undetermined period of time. Most survivors suffer from the effects of starvation as a result of poor planning and training. In most cases, survivors reported that they wish that they procured food earlier.

Psychology of Survival
One of the most important factors of Survival Training is the Psychology. The mental factors endured in a survival situation can be the difference between life and death. You will hear any expert in survival say that “the will to survive” determines the outcome in a survival situation. At Unik Skills we bring in educated Psychologists to show you the realities of a survival situation. Through statistics and research probabilities, we identify the best methods in preparing you for the unexpected.
Tracking is a very unique skill that has been around for many years. The evolution of society and urban development has diminished the need for primitive skills such as tracking. In today’s society you will find that hunters are of the few to utilize tracking techniques. When hunting an animal, hunters need to understand how to recognize the signs and spoor (tracks) that the animal leaves behind. At Unik Skills we will teach you tricks to save you time and increase your chances of success.
At Unik Skills we have designed a Tracking Program that includes skills in fieldcraft, concealment, observation and memory. With these proven skills, you will improve your Tracking capabilities extremely well.
