New Season Of NRA Women On Target Hunting Excursions Draws Near
Fairfax, VA – -(AmmoLand.com)- Another exciting season of Women on Target Hunting Excursions is about to begin. Women hunters with experience ranging from first-timers to the most seasoned of veterans are provided with the opportunity to have a unique and enjoyable hunting adventure.
Since 1999, Women on Target has brought together women who share a love of the outdoors. Huntresses will have the chance to hunt a wide variety of game through our diverse hunts. Elk, quail, boar, turkey, deer, dove, antelope, bear, goose, duck and pheasant hunts have brought hundreds of women to our excursions.
“Each one of these trips offers something unique,” NRA Deputy Executive Director Andrea Cerwinske said. “Whether a woman is a seasoned hunter or a beginner wanting to learn more, NRA's Women On Target hunts are carefully selected with experienced guides, great outfitters, and scenic locations to make each hunt a memorable one.”
Women on Target hunts are a welcoming environment where the skills necessary to be a successful hunter are taught. The professional outfitters are carefully screened to ensure a supportive, friendly, and pressure-free atmosphere throughout the trip. We want you to take the skills you learn on your hunts and pass them on!
