An very worth while thing for inexperienced women wanting a less pressured learning experience. A friend of mine is an instructor for BOW.

For other state chapter/programs of BOW, just do a google search :thumbsup:

Some Comments from BOW participants:

" Great Program - opened up an even wider enjoyment and
appreciation of the woods and out-of-doors"
--- C. Baldock

"This was my first BOW and I was certainly impressed with the quality of instruction, the organization of the entire event and the general friendly attitude of everyone. I believe there would be more women beating down a door to get here if they new about the program and how great it is.."
--- C. Sears

In two and a half days I did target shooting with both a rifle and a bow. I went fishing, learned basic orienteering and had a basic course in rifle safety. I learned about wildlife habits and habitats, ate great food, won prizes, met fun people and had a wonderful time. No exaggeration."
--- M. MacDonald

"I had a wonderful time. I will drive everyone I know crazy because I'm not going to stop talking about this weekend for a long, long time. Can't wait until the next one."
--- B.J. Stewart
