Beyond BOW Women’s Deer Hunt

Many women would like to deer hunt, but don’t know how to go about it. Thanks to a program being offered by the West Virginia Division of Natural Resources, they can get a good start toward an exciting adventure in the woods this fall.

The Wildlife Section of DNR is sponsoring a Beyond BOW Women’s Deer Hunt, December 2 – 4, 2006. in Lewis County. The registration fee is $130 which includes two nights lodging at a cabin at Stonewall Resort, Saturday dinner, Sunday breakfast and lunch, Monday breakfast, a personal mentor and a field dressing kit.

Participants will receive instruction on basic firearms safety, deer hunting techniques and field dressing. There will be a trip to the rifle range to sight in your firearm and for target practice. To participate in this antlerless deer hunt, you must be at least 18 years old and preference will be given to those who have attended a BOW workshop, a BOW hunter safety class, and those who have not attended a previous BOW hunt. Participants will need a valid hunting license and a Class N stamp. All participants will need to bring their own firearm and ammunition.

Applications are now available, but space is very limited. For more information, please contact Billie Shearer at 304-558-2771 or or download the application form at
