Registration opens January 6 for the 2014 Becoming an Outdoors-Woman (BOW) Winter Workshop, a one-day program where women can learn outdoor skills to enjoy during the winter months. The workshop will be held on Saturday, February 15, 2014 (snow date Sunday, February 16), at the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department’s Owl Brook Hunter Education Center in Holderness, N.H. A fee of $55 covers the workshop, lunch and most equipment use. Participants must be at least 18 years old. A brochure describing the workshop is currently available at http://www.nhbow.com.
If you are interested in attending Winter BOW, check the website a few days before registration opens on January 6, 2014, and print out the registration form and mail it in right away. This program fills up quickly.
Winter BOW participants choose a single activity to explore during the daylong workshop. Learn how to ice-fish, explore winter outdoor survival skills, track wildlife on snowshoes, try snowmobiling (beginners only) or experience the popular ’Shoe and Shoot class (woodland target shooting on snowshoes).
New Hampshire BOW programs are co-sponsored by the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department and the New Hampshire Wildlife Federation, a nonprofit group that advocates for the promotion and protection of hunting, fishing and trapping, as well as the conservation of fish and wildlife habitat.
