Published 3:17 pm Wednesday, December 15, 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, Basic Handguns, on Feb. 19, 2022, at the Woodworth Outdoor Education Center.

This workshop will cover the basics of operating a handgun, which includes how to select a handgun for hunting and recreational shooting. We will practice shooting and cleaning revolvers and semi-automatic handguns. Other topics discussed will be handgun safety, shooting techniques, proper hand placement and grip, caliber selection for game and proper sight alignment. Equipment and firearms will be provided.

The workshop, for women 18 and older, is from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. and is $35. All equipment will be provided and this course is a mixture of classroom instruction and hands-on activities. Registration for this event is limited and will open Friday (Dec. 17)

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.
