Women Hunt



 
Introducing the Wild Sheep Foundation Women Hunt™ Program
 
For many reasons, the fastest-growing segment in the hunter/conservationist community today is women. Understanding why and what it will take to help even more women enjoy the rich benefits of hunting are two great questions worth exploring. The Wild Sheep Foundation (WSF) Women Hunt™ Program engages and helps more women cross barriers on their journey into fields and the mountains.
 
The WSF Women Hunt™ Program offered an exceptional opportunity for twelve new women hunters to experience their first hunt in a safe, comfortable, and immersive educational environment at the FTW Ranch in the Hill Country of Texas in October 2021. The ranch delivers a New Hunter Course and we partnered with them to tailor it for a class of women, incorporating conservation education with the world-class shooting and hunting instruction delivered by former US Special Forces operators and experienced hunters.

In addition to instruction on the safe handling of firearms and precision shooting techniques, each participant also had the opportunity to hunt for whitetail doe. The course included instruction on game identification, shot placement, hunting techniques and field trailing. With instruction from field to fork, the participants learned how to field dress, care and butcher their game and prepare it under the expert instruction of a master chef. Considerable emphasis was placed on hunter ethics, etiquette and a comprehensive introduction and discussion of the North American Model of Wildlife Conservation.

The participants were selected from applicants from the Wild Sheep Foundation’s Chapters & Affiliates. Successful applicants were chosen by the Women Hunt™ committee using a comprehensive application process including an objective, blind assessment and scoring rubric.

WSF’s Women Hunt™ Program will conduct a second New Hunter Course in October 2022 at the FTW Ranch. Check back here for details on the application process and deadline and follow the Women Hunt™ Program on Facebook @womenhuntprogram and Instagram @women_hunt.
