About BOW

Becoming an Outdoors-Woman is a program focused on creating opportunities for women to learn outdoor skills - skills usually associated with hunting and fishing, but useful for many outdoor pursuits.


Designed primarily for women, the program is open to those 18 years of age or older. It's for you if: you have never tried these activities and want the chance to learn; you are a beginner looking to improve your skills; you are familiar with some outdoor activities, but would like to try your hand at new challenges; or you are looking for friends to share outdoor experiences.
