Novice Women’s Pheasant Hunt Weekend (includes Hunter Ed)-Sept 26-27 2020
Women’s Pheasant Hunt Weekend at Birds Landing Hunting Preserve & Sporting Clays is an amazing opportunity to complete hunter education, get shooting instruction and go on a mentored hunt (with loaner guns available) the next morning. It’s a fast and easy way to give hunting a try without a major commitment of time or money, and you’ll meet other women you can continue to hunt with down the road – lasting friendships are formed at this event!
If space is available, we will allow already-licensed women to join us for the entire event, or just for the hunt. Call Becoming an Outdoors-Woman Coordinator Sarahbeth Gonsalves at 559-972-3441 to see if spots are available.
