The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources is marking the 20th anniversary of its Becoming an Outdoors Woman program this year. The DNR has just released its 2014 catalog of events for the program, which offers a wide range of hands-on learning opportunities for women and their families who want to learn how to hunt, fish or develop other outdoor skills.

Strange, my Mother and Grandmothers all liked to go hunting, and did so quite frequently. Seems they didn’t need a state (taxpayer funded) program to do that. I wonder how they ever got by?
how long before some tranny weirdo shows up and demands to take part?
(On the other hand, guys who dress like women and want to use womens restrooms might want to steer clear of women with guns...)
I must have missed the equivalent program for men.
Oh, that’s right. There ISN’T one.
So much for “equality.”
Whatever happened to the PBS TV show Michigan Outdoors?
Yeah, it’s a pretty sad state of affairs when one has to turn to the gubmint for something that should be a part of everyday family life.
Looks like they have a fairly hefty fee for the activities. I have no problem with a program like this. Hunter safety is not a bad idea for people who are just starting out. Not just for their benefit but for the rest of us out there.
My Wife and I were volunteer instructors for years at Vermont’s BOW program. It is a little pricey but the food is usually high quality, even if the accommodations are a bit rustic. It gave women of all ages a chance to learn Outdoor activities at their own pace and along with peers rather than with significant others or husbands. It’s not about equality it is about learning with out being criticized, for doing it wrong.... Most significant others were extremely grateful to have this program as trying to teach a spouse can have it’s drawbacks.
This used to be called “Girl Scouts” was it not?
