Ladies, have you ever considered becoming a turkey hunter but did not have someone in your life to help you learn or just do not know where to start, then listen up.
The Witt Stephens Jr., Central Arkansas Nature Center in downtown Little Rock is hosting a free Discover Turkey Hunting workshop on Tuesday, March 26. Topics to be covered in the workshop are turkey seasons, regulations, habitat, scouting, hunting techniques, equipment and how to use a turkey call.
The workshop will be from 6 to 9 p.m. and is a part of the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission’s popular Becoming an Outdoors Woman (BOW) program. The number of women choosing to take up the sport of hunting is on a steady increase, however opportunities for them to obtain new hunting skills are often hard to find. The goal of the Becoming an Outdoors-Woman program is provide a non-threatening atmosphere where women can have fun learning skills that will enhance their enjoyment of Arkansas’ outdoors. This BOW basics class is a great way to learn about turkey hunting and get more information on the weekend-long event coming up in September.
Seating is limited for the workshop, and advance registration is needed by phoning 501-907-0636. Bring a friend if you want, but don’t worry about coming alone. You’ll quickly make some new friends with the same turkey hunting interests you have.
