Louisiana Mini Becoming An Outdoors Woman Workshops

The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries (LDWF) and Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries Foundation (LAWFF) will hold the next Mini Becoming an Outdoor Woman workshop, Fowl Language (previously Hear a duck, there a duck), on Oct. 2 at the Waddill Wildlife Refuge.

The next Mini BOW will include waterfowl identification and physiology, blind building, safety, hunting specific areas, duck calling and cleaning. Participants will also experience a taste of wild duck recipes and basic wing shooting techniques, if weather permits. All equipment will be provided.

The workshop, for women 18 and older, is from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. and is $35. All equipment will be provided and this course is a mixture of classroom instruction and hands-on activities. Registration for the event is limited.

Mini BOW is a program designed to introduce women 18 or older to outdoor activities. A branch from the highly popular “Becoming an Outdoors-Woman workshop”, the Mini BOW provides the same introductory level hands-on outdoor educational courses, but on a smaller scale.

Mini BOW’s provide women an additional opportunity to gain knowledge of a particular subject matter, which may allow the eligibility and participation in advanced BOW workshops.

Come prepared for the workshops rain or shine. All Mini BOW workshops are limited and on a first-come, first-serve basis.
