NW Ladies Hunting Camp

June 14, 2015

This past weekend Jeanine and Jessica attended a camp designed to teach women about hunting skills. It was called the NW Ladies Hunting Camp and it was held at the Luckiamute Valley Pheasants Shooting Preserve between Corvallis and Monmouth, Oregon. Some of the fun activities they got to do were: shotgun, handgun, rifle and archery shooting, map and compass, dutch oven cooking, upland bird hunting, ladies outdoor clothing fashion show and more. Here’s a link to their website www.ladieshunting.com. Sounds like they had a lot of fun without me, again. But, I’m glad they got to go and meet other women navigating their way through the various outdoor activities and developing their shooting and outdoor survival skills. Another cool thing was they got to bring home some cool prizes!
