New Hampshire’s Becoming an Outdoors-Woman (BOW) Program has been supporting women in the New Hampshire outdoors since 1995. NH BOW is an educational program offering adult women hands-on classes and workshops on a range of outdoor sports in a supportive environment conducive to learning and having fun. No experience is necessary and women of all ages and fitness levels are welcome.
Becoming an Outdoors-Woman began as a course at the University of Wisconsin that analyzed the reasons more women don’t participate in outdoors activities, such as hunting and fishing. Research indicated that women preferred to learn these skills in a non-competitive atmosphere along with other women.
New Hampshire’s Becoming an Outdoors Woman Program is a non-profit group, co-sponsored by the New Hampshire Wildlife Federation and New Hampshire Fish and Game Department.
Our instructors are volunteers who have years of experience educating within their chosen passions and an appreciation for the natural environment.
