A Wilderness First Responder, he has been “practicing primitive” skills and taking lessons from several well-known Master Woodsmen throughout North America since the late 1990’s. The founder of Master Woodsman and happily married, he enjoys passing what he learns to others, especially his 2 children, Emerson and Duncan.

Wilson BioWilson is the brains of this operation and has been a part of WCC since the beginning. We’d be lost without him! A favorite in both our kid and adult classes, he is not only a lot of fun, but a great memory trigger for numerous lessons. Interestingly, the real Wilson from the movie CastAway was the brainchild of Steve Watts, a technical advisor to the movie and one of our mentors.


As we don’t know it all, we do bring in additional instructors as needed. As such, we will notify accordingly for your event, training, or trip.
