Women interested in learning more about shooting a bow and arrow are invited to attend a one-day clinic on Saturday, August 18, at the Teller Wildlife Refuge south of Missoula. Participants will also learn the art of Dutch oven cooking as they help prepare lunch.
At the clinic, participants will learn how to string a bow, fletch an arrow, practice stationary and aerial shooting, and learn archery games. Participants may bring their own bow, arrows and arm guards or the equipment will be provided.
Everyone will learn the art of Dutch oven cooking as they help prepare lunch. "You'll get worn out shooting a bow all day," says event coordinator Cherrie Angel-Kieninger, "so we'll take a break mid-day and help make lunch using Dutch ovens."
This clinic is an extension of the popular "Becoming an Outdoors-Woman" (BOW) workshops sponsored by Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks, and is co-hosted by the Montana Bowhunters Association. The BOW workshops are geared toward beginners and stress hands-on learning experiences. The workshops are designed for women but are open to anyone 18 years of age and over with a desire to learn new skills.
Registration deadline is August 1st and space is limited. The fee for the clinic is $50, including lunch and other materials. For registration information, contact Lorraine Karwaski at FWP, P.O. Box 200701, Helena, MT 59620, phone 406-444-3188, or by email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
