Becoming an Outdoors-Woman, California is offering women a chance to learn how to duck hunt on Jan. 10. The daylong class is at the Wilderness Unlimited property in Williams, on Highway 20, 1.5 miles east of Interstate 5 in Colusa County.

Are you a woman who can picture yourself in a duck blind at the break of dawn when it seems like the whole world is coming to life, experiencing the sights and sounds of nature, waiting to hear those wingbeats heading toward the decoys? 
If you’ve ever wanted to learn to duck hunt, are a beginner who wants some excellent instruction, or if you’ve been duck hunting and know the value of this guided hunt, this is the class for you.

Wilderness Unlimited has partnered with BOW, California to offer a guided duck hunt for 10 very lucky women.  You and another hunter will hunt with a professional guide and dog.  Shotguns and ammunition will be provided, or you can bring your own. 
We will meet at the club house between 4 and 5 p.m. for dinner Friday evening and a brief overview of the next day’s activities, sleep in the bunk house, and rise at ‘0-dark-thirty to get out to the blinds.  A continental breakfast will be provided before you leave for the blind.  You will need your hunting license with both the state and federal duck stamps.

Cost is $150, and space is limited to the first 10 registrants. Register online at www.bowca.org or for more information contact Herrgesell at susan@bowca.org or (530) 347-0227  to receive a registration form.

BOW, California is a non-profit organization dedicated to offering opportunities to learn outdoor skills in a safe, encouraging and supportive environment. Instruction is given in a one, two or three-day workshop with hands-on experiences. The workshops are designed to foster the learning process and provide the opportunity for women to enjoy the outdoors while encouraging and empowering them to build their self-confidence in the outdoors and in life’s adventures.

    I think it is amazing that an article about learning how to kill an animal could include such a wonderful photograph of this animal. Rather ironic and sad I think.

    Wouldn't it be just as "empowering" to simply photograph these poor animals with out blowing them to kingdom-come?
