You've learned how to run your carbine, and to do it effectively as a part of a team during combative situations.   Here we bring it all together in practical application.  Any activity you undertake that requires tactical or security considerations can be considered a "patrol".  Patrolling will add to your skill set the ability to conduct any group activity in a tactically proficient manner, and regain or retain the initiative.

Length: 2 Days including 1 overnight

  • Organization

  • Understanding Planning and Briefs

  • Patrol Types

  • Communication

  • Movement Formations

Patrol Pack: Your patrol pack should at minimum sustain you for several days and provide 4 key needs.  Food, water, shelter and hygiene.  For this course pack 2 days worth of food and water, and include shelter and clothing appropriate for the season.   Food should not need cooking and require minimal preparation.  A small travel kit of toiletries will be sufficient for "field" hygiene.  A large part of this course is learning to "live" in the field and conduct personal maintenance in a tactical environment.  Contact the Bull Creek Strategic Cadre with questions or suggestions on equipping yourself for the patrol course
