Becoming an Outdoor Woman

I joined the Becoming an Outdoor Woman in Maineboard in April because I love the outdoors and write a blog about hunting. I joined because my friend Rabid sent me the application. I attended board meetings and started understanding what is it we do as Friends of Maine Bow.

But it wasn’t until this weekend that I got it.

We help to empower women to be confident and know that they can do anything they put their minds to. From hatchet throwing to freshwater fishing to muzzle loading and beyond, there was no skill these women could not do.

We laughed, we cried and we shared stories that linked our experiences closer than I think many of us realized.

Over the next week, I will be posting stories about the classes I sat in on, the women I met and my hopes for next year’s Skills Weekend
