For those not familiar with the “BOW” (Becoming an outdoors-woman) program, it first started in Wisconson in 1991. It is now held in 38 states and 6 provinces with more than 80 workshops each year. The objective of BOW is to provide women with the skills needed to get involved in hunting, shooting, fishing, boating and other outdoor activities.
