Being introduced to the shooting sports and hunting can be intimidating, especially for a woman. If you're surrounded by experts, you might have a hard time relaxing because you're so worried about messing up. The NRA Women's Wilderness Escape gives women 18 and up the opportunity to discover shooting in the company of other women.
The Women's Wilderness Escape includes shooting, hunting, game calling and survival skill activities tailored exclusively for women! Three Women's Wilderness Escape events are scheduled for 2018.
The first is a four-day experience in early June at Seven Springs Resort in Champion, Pennsylvania. Attendees will learn how to safely handle and operate a shotgun, explore the game of sporting clays at one of the country's best facilities, and discover how to build a personal strategy at the First Aid and Trauma Care seminar all while relaxing and enjoying the beauty of the surrounding Laurel Highlands. Registration costs $995, and is all-inclusive.
Next, 14 students will enjoy two days of long range shooting and hunting instruction from shooting champion Jessie Harrison-Duff at Queen Mountain Lodge near Evanston, Wyoming June 7-10, 2018. This two-day course is designed for women who want to learn new shooting and hunting skills in an actual hunting environment from top long range instructors, guides and outfitters. Attendees will learn new shooting skills on the Camilla, Weatherby's first rifle designed by women for women. Each student will have her own Camilla, topped with a Freedom Scopes 4-12x40 from Leupold to use during the class. At the end, each student will have the opportunity to purchase the Camilla and Leupold she used at VIP pricing. Registration costs $2,500, and includes airport pickup and drop-off, lodging and instruction, with all gear and ammo provided.
The third event is a six-day experience at the NRA Whittington Center just outside Raton, New Mexico in early October. The NRA Whittington Center is one of the finest shooting complexes in the nation, boasting 33,000 acres nested amongst the scenic western mountains and high mesa country of New Mexico. This escape teaches participants how to safely handle and operate a shotgun, rifle and pistol, as well as a visit to the Frank Brownell Museum of the Southwest. Registration is $1,750, and is all-inclusive!
There's nothing more empowering than a group of women who come together to experience and enjoy the shooting sports and the outdoor lifestyle. Experience your escape this year!
