(Released February 10, 2014)

Women who want to learn how to hunt, fish or develop other outdoor skills can find a wide range of hands-on learning opportunities in the 2014 Becoming An Outdoors Woman (BOW) catalog.

“The catalog offers a wide array of opportunities for women and families,” said Linda Bylander, BOW coordinator for the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. “Our skill-building classes focus on learning by doing in a friendly and supportive atmosphere.”

Program offerings this year include a sturgeon fishing trip, grouse and pheasant hunts, kayaking and canoeing. Classes are designed for women age 14 and older; they range from beginner to advanced level.
