Outdoor skills weekend on offer for Prince George women

B.C. Wildlife Federation to host three-day course at Ness Lake Bible Camp in May

The B.C. Wildlife Federation is offering a three-day course in Prince George for women who want to learn essential skills for enjoying the outdoors safely, including the basics for aspiring hunters, anglers, backwoods photographers and campers.

Becoming an Outdoors Woman begins May 12 and runs through May 14 at Ness Lake Bible Camp.

Expert instructors will provide hands-on training in activities ranging from archery and wild game care, foraging and fly-fishing, photography and watercolour painting, survival and first aid, how to back up a truck and trailer and use a chainsaw.

That means one in four new hunters in B.C. is female, while the total number of licensed female hunters topped 12,000 last year, a figure that has doubled in the past two decades.
