Abstract:
Compared to the number of men who hunt and fish, few women participate in these activities. A major reason given by women for nonparticipation is their lack of early experience with the outdoors. By the time they get the urge as adults, the men in their lives who hunt and fish are far ahead of them in skills. Becoming an Outdoors Women (BOW) is a national outdoor skills program that provides women the opportunity to develop outdoor skills, including hunting, fishing, boating, and camping. The North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission sponsors the program in the state. Martin relates her experiences as a program participant.
