Sign Up for “Becoming an Outdoors-Woman” Waterfowl Hunting Weekend

CONCORD, N.H. -- Women who are interested in learning how to hunt waterfowl can now sign up for a new Becoming an Outdoors-Woman (BOW) weekend workshop set for  August 12-14, 2011, at Barry Conservation Camp in Berlin, N.H. The cost for the weekend is $175.

This event is for women who are interested in learning the basics of waterfowl hunting. No previous experience is necessary. All equipment will be provided. As part of the workshop, participants will learn about firearm safety, and there will be live firing opportunities with shotguns. The workshop covers waterfowl identification, waterfowl management, necessary equipment and a variety of hunting techniques. You'll also get to plan and participate in a “mock” waterfowl hunt. Participants must be 18 years or older.

To register, visit www.nhbow.com and download the Beyond Becoming an Outdoors-Woman Waterfowl Weekend workshop brochure and mail-in registration form. For questions or to get a registration form by mail or email, call 603-271-3212 or email aquatic-ed@wildlife.nh.gov. Applications are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis, by mail or in person at the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department, 11 Hazen Drive, in Concord, N.H. 03301.  BOW events fill up fast, so sign up soon if you are interested. Upon being registered, you will be sent a written confirmation and an information packet.

The goal of this course is to introduce participants to the skills necessary to hunt waterfowl and feel confident enough to try it on their own. Fifteen women will join BOW staff, N.H. Fish Game Department waterfowl biologists and seasoned waterfowl hunters from Ducks Unlimited, for this fun, hands-on, educational weekend. A hunting license is not required for this event.

The course fee of $175 includes lodging, instruction, program materials, use of demonstration equipment, Friday evening welcome/check-in (does not include Friday dinner), all meals on Saturday, breakfast and lunch on Sunday.

Barry Conservation Camp is located on the grounds of the Berlin Fish Hatchery on York Pond Road, off Route 110 in West Milan, N.H., a remote location with beautiful scenery. You'll stay in rustic, newly-renovated cabins.  Each cabin can sleep five people.  Cabins are not heated.  The camp has a modern dining hall and shared bathroom/shower facilities.

B.O.W. is co-sponsored by the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department (www.wildnh.com) and the New Hampshire Wildlife Federation (www.nhwf.org).
