Two sessions of wilderness shooting, hunting and survival lessons in New Mexico
- You don't need to know how to survive in the outdoors. You don't need to know shoot a rifle, catch a fish, to build a fire or clean a shotgun. You don't need to know how to do any of that, but wouldn't it be nice to know?
That's the opportunity the NRA is offering this September in Raton, New Mexico. We only have one stipulation ... ladies only.
Starting September 21st, the first of two eight day sessions take place at the renowned Whittington Center. 33,000 acres of scenic western mountains, wide open plains and high mesa country in the northern New Mexico. That's where it all takes place.
You can be part of that adventure. This is your time, your place, your chance to take part in one some have called the most exciting events in their life ... the Women's Wilderness Escape.
"120 women, sixty per session, are going to learn about game calling, handgun shooting, bow hunting and more," said NRA Recreational Shooting Specialist Kara Schlifke. "It's a once in a lifetime experience."
Session one begins on September 21 with orientation. From there until September 28, the first batch of sixty women will be schooled with the lessons that will allow them to go out into the wilderness, harvest game and make it back to civilization without breaking a sweat. On September 29, it starts all over again.
"A comprehensive, hands-on, eight day seminar of what it takes to be successful in the woods," said Schlifke. "You're going to want to do it again and again."
The Women's Wilderness Escape is a program of the NRA's Education and Training Division. Thanks to sponsors like Prois, Brownells, FNH-USA and Cabela's (among others), it can be yours for a reasonable price. Check out the Women's Wilderness Escape webpage for more information.
