Dave Canterbury    

Wilderness Survival Teacher, NYT Best-Selling Author of "Bushcraft 101" & Global Ambassador for Morakniv

Dave Canterbury has more than 20 years of combined military and civilian survival experience. He joined the U.S. Army at age 17, eventually becoming a Special Reaction Team (SRT) instructor and sniper. He trained soldiers in the U.S., Central America and Korea in unarmed combat and close-quarter techniques.

After leaving the Army, Canterbury worked on a reptile farm and as a commercial fisherman and diver in the Florida saltwater marshes. He put his background, skills and training to work for the next phase of his career — learning and now teaching wilderness survival at his Pathfinder Training School in Southeast Ohio.

Canterbury, a professional hunting guide and tracker, has posted over 300 survival-themed instructional videos on the web. He is also the author of The Pathfinder System: A Common Man's Survival Guide, that has been hailed as one of the best "no nonsense, common sense" handbooks.
