    Default Becoming an Outdoors Woman Group??

    I know that a group of Becoming an Outdoors Woman exists as the News Miner posted a full article on the group within this past month.

    I want to know if any wives on the board have participated in such events?
    Are they successful?
    Are they enjoyable?
    Would you suggest it to someone?
    And...
    If you didn't like it, what specifically about it was there that you didn't like?

    I see that in the Fairbanks area, they did some kind of moose hunt during the month of September, but I didn't catch the whole article.

    Can anyone elaborate?
    Thanks in advanced!

    Yikes! A weekend seminar in June!? I don't know about you, but I am kind of selfish with my Alaskan summers. Kudos to your wife for at least trying to stay for it! I definitely don't blame her in leaving, though. I would have done the same!!!

    Default Yes!

    I attended one in New Mexico and it was great, everything from cleaning game, shooting (defensive, rifle, pistol, beginner, advanced) cooking, tracking, car maintenence?????, I guess anything you could think of. The gathering of like women was inspirational as well. I think whoever is in charge puts the different classes together. Ours was held at the NRA center in Raton. At first I thought it would be too beginner but found it just the opposite. The one in NM was only two days so didn't interfere with hunting and fishing. Good luck!

    This is great. Had I had known that there was a group like this when I lived in Colorado, I would have done something about it.. instead I was trying to summit all the 55 (with 3 unrated) 14,000ft mountains.

    Thanks for letting me know if your experience. I really appreciate you taking the time to post!

    Yes yes... of course you got me again. I don't blush that often, but on this one I did...
    Blah.
    Well, the husband knows... and that's all that could be said about that.

    Give a call to Cathie Harms at Fish and Game in Fairbanks. She can give you more information on such groups.
