LDWF, LAWFF to Hold Next Mini Becoming An Outdoors Woman Workshop – Louisiana Style!

Published 9:00 am Sunday, December 5, 2021

The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries (LDWF) and Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries Foundation (LAWFF) will hold the next Mini Becoming an Outdoor Woman (BOW) workshop, Falconry, on Jan. 22, 2022, at the Loggy Bayou Plantation in Ringgold.

Master Falconer Rusty Scarborough will use his trained bird of prey to demonstrate falconry hunting techniques. Participants should be prepared to be outdoors and able to hike off trail and through uneven terrain. Falconry is a hunting sport dating back more than 3,000 years, using trained birds of prey such as hawks, falcons, eagles and owls to catch small game.

The workshop, for women 18 and older, is from 2 p.m. to dusk and is $35. All equipment and supper will be provided. Registration for this event is limited.

Mini BOW is a program designed to introduce women 18 or older to outdoor activities. A branch from the highly popular “Becoming an Outdoors-Woman workshop”, the Mini BOW provides the same introductory level hands-on outdoor educational courses but on a smaller scale.

Come prepared for the workshops rain or shine. All Mini BOW workshops are limited and on a first-come, first-serve basis.

A special thanks to Loggy Bayou Plantation for allowing LDWF to use their facility as well as providing supper for this course.
