A great opportunity for women to learn to do outdoor activities on their own!
Very empowering… Four special Beyond “Becoming an Outdoors-Woman” (BOW) programs are coming this year (see below for dates) that will give women a chance to explore outdoor topics including firearms, deep sea fishing, waterfowl hunting and fly-fishing.
“Beyond BOW” courses expand the offerings of traditional Becoming an Outdoors-Woman fall and winter workshops co-sponsored by NH Fish & Game and NH Wildlife. These in-depth courses are designed to give women the skills to do the outdoor activity on their own; it’s also a chance to network with other like-minded women with whom to share these activities which are listed below.
