Colorado Parks and Wildlife invites women to hunt in March
March 8, 2017
Colorado Parks and Wildlife invites women to start planning upcoming hunting trips this March in honor of Women's History Month.
CPW's Women Afield program was established more than a decade ago to specifically help women develop hunting skills by pairing them with experienced hunting mentors. Free events are offered throughout the year, and equipment provided along with the expert advice.
"Women are our fastest growing population of new hunters," Crystal Chick, CPW's statewide hunter outreach coordinator, said in a news release. "A lot of women don't have that person to teach them how to hunt. We want to reduce that intimidation factor and provide a safe and fun environment to learn."
Visit CPW's website to watch a video about Women Afield, or to sign up for updates about the program. A list of upcoming Women Afield events, including in March, is also available there.
