“Ladies Only” Home Study Hunter Education Offered

Waterbury, VT -- Women are increasingly aware of the many outdoor opportunities Vermont has to offer. With growing interest, comes increasing demand for exposure and training. The Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department is very pleased to announce a “Ladies Only” Home Study Hunter Education class that will be instructed by, you guessed it, a woman.

“We are very pleased to say that we have several very experienced and knowledgeable female instructors in both hunter education and aquatic programs such as Let’s Go Fishing,” said Ann Shangraw, hunter education information specialist. “We’re adding an average of two female instructors a year, and it’s our goal to increase this average. Typically, learning experiences are enhanced for women when taught by women.”

The Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department has experienced increased demands from Vermonters for women’s programs ranging from ice fishing to “Becoming an Outdoors Woman.”

The “Ladies Only” Home Study Hunter Education class will be held on Saturday, April 18, 2009 at the Edward Kehoe Conservation Camp, Point of Pines Road, Bomoseen, Vermont. Hours are 8:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m., pre-registration is required by calling (802) 241-3720 before April 10, 2009.
