Donny Dust

Donny started in wilderness survival and primitive skills at an early age. Donny grew up fishing, hiking, exploring the unique environments he found himself living in. Because of a natural curiosity of the real world around him, Donny spent all his time in the wild spaces that surrounded him. He was constantly building shelters, gathering, crafting primitive weaponry and just experimenting with his natural surroundings. There wasn’t a time where Donny was not curious about how to live in the wilds.

Donny owns and operates Paleo Tracks Survival, Colorado’s premier survival and wilderness self-reliance school. Donny is a true practioniner of primitive technologies, bushcraft and survival. Donny has nearly two decades worth of outdoor survival skills and primitive living skills experience. His primitive living and survival experiences extend into all geographies of the world; specifically, the remote jungles of Southeast Asia, the deserts of the Middle East and the snowcapped mountains of North America. Donny can be found living in many of the remote regions of the Rocky Mountains when he is not teaching.

Donny is a published author providing his insights through publications in many mainstream survival and wilderness living magazines; also providing his insights into the survival and primitive living communities as a guest lecturer at major outdoor events, Podcasts and through radio appearances.

Donny is an expert flintknapper and primitive technologist; as his skills and knowledge are often sought out to teach professional hunters, survival instructors, wilderness guides and military personnel. As a modern day primitive hunter, gatherer and scavenger Donny employs all that he knows to hunt with the simplest of tools imaginable and truly thrive in any environment. When it comes to knowing more and carrying less, living of the land and harnessing all the natural world offers…Donny Dust is truly a master of his craft.

Donny works within the tv/film industry as a technical consultant for all things related to survival and primitive survival. Donny has appeared on History Channels hit show Alone Season 6 and Alone The Beast Season 1. Donny also played a character model after himself in the feature film The Big Bend produced in 2019.
