Quail Forever chapters from Arkansas and Louisiana will be hosting a “Women on the Wing Learn to Hunt Weekend Extravaganza” this January. The event will be open to adult women only and will focus on introducing new hunters to the upland world.
There are only ten spots available for the event and the cost for the weekend is $200 per person, not including lodging. The weekend will kick off with a seminar and dinner at 6 p.m. on January 27 at the Nature Center in Jonesboro, Arkansas. The next morning, participants will trek 40 miles northeast to Rector, Ark. for a learn-to-shoot event at Liberty Hill Outfitters. Breakfast, lunch and dinner will be served. The weekend will be capped off with an all day pheasant hunt at Liberty Hill on Saturday, January 29.
“Adult onset hunters are a core part of the R3 movement nationwide, and women are among the fastest growing portion of adult onset hunters,” said Ciera Rhodes, a Pheasants Forever and Quail Forever farm bill biologist in Arkansas who’s helping organize the gathering. “This event will be a great chance for women of different skill levels to learn from one another and connect over shared interest in the outdoors and the uplands.”
