To be held at Howell Woods Environmental Center, east of Benson, the workshop is designed for all skill levels and is part of the Becoming an Outdoors-Woman program. Archery equipment will be provided.
Workshop participants will learn how to make a hunt plan, put together a survival kit, and organize a safe, successful hunt. Instructors will cover first aid, tree stand safety, how to use elevated stands and blinds, how to choose scents, lures and game calls, and how to select equipment.
There will be a session for developing shot strategies, as well as plenty of target practice using 3-D targets. Because successful hunters must be prepared to recover game, the workshop will offer instruction in proper trailing techniques, as well as field dressing and moving big game.
Overnight accommodations are onsite in air-conditioned group cabins; participants should bring bedding and linens. Meals include breakfast and lunch on Saturday and snacks.
