Wyoming’s inaugural Women’s One Shot Antelope Hunt, held Oct. 3-6, 2013, will celebrate women hunters and raise money for the Wyoming Women’s Foundation.
Hosted and organized by the Wyoming Women’s Foundation, the event will provide a guided antelope hunt for 50 women. The weekend hunt will be held at the historic Ucross Ranch in Ucross, Wyo.
“Wyoming was the first state to recognize women’s right to vote. And now we’re leading the way by hosting the Women’s One Shot Antelope hunt,” said Marilyn Kite, Wyoming Supreme Court Chief Justice and event co-chairwoman. “The event is ideal whether you’re a first-time hunter or a seasoned pro. Our emphasis will be on safe and responsible hunting.”
Monies raised at this event will support the mission of the Wyoming Women’s Foundation, which is to invest in the economic, self-sufficiency of women and the future of girls. The goals of the One Shot Antelope Hunt are to:
- Provide opportunities for women hunters to mentor and be mentored,
- Allow participants to network with other like-minded women,
- Enjoy Wyoming’s great outdoors and
- Support efforts to improve access to education and jobs for Wyoming women.
Event participants will hunt on scenic private lands in northeastern Wyoming with experienced guides. In addition, women who attend this event will have ample time for networking, taking part in some friendly competitions, and raising funds for an important cause.
To ensure the success of the event, the Wyoming Women’s Foundation is seeking event sponsors. Each sponsor, based on the level of their contribution, will have the opportunity to invite women to attend this event. For more information about the event, visit www.womensoneshot.com.
