Successful Beyond Bow: Bowhunting 101 Workshop

Becoming an Outdoors-Woman (BOW) programs teach women a wide range of outdoor skills and foster community at each of the workshops. We hosted a successful Beyond BOW, Bowhunting 101 workshop May 13-15 at Camp Amahami in the Catskills. Twenty-six women (ages 22-73) traveled to join us for hands-on classes to learn bow shooting skills, including learning to shoot instinctively, shooting compound bows with sites and releases, shooting crossbows, safely using tree stands and shooting from them, and participating in a 3-D shoot in the woods, in addition to learning tracking and blood trailing. Nineteen of the participants earned their NYS Bowhunter Education Certification during the workshop. All participants were able to try something new and discover many ways to have outdoor fun.
