On Saturday, March 19th MassWildlife staff will host a Becoming an Outdoors Woman (BOW) workshop called Hunting 101. This is a session for women who would like to plan a hunt – either with gun or camera — but don’t know where to begin. It is for novice hunters who have always wondered how the expert hunters locate hotspots. It’s easy. With a solid knowledge of the target species and a set of topographic maps, anyone can learn to identify promising locations.

The workshop attendees will get this training, then check their findings with staff to confirm whether they had selected good areas. The last time this workshop was offered, participants walked into unfamiliar territory and were able to select areas right away where the group found an abundance of tracks and wildlife signs. Preregistration is required and a few spots remain. If you want notification about future BOW events, sign onto the program’s email notification list.
