Woman in the Wild Outdoors

Post by TPM » Fri Jun 24, 2016 8:38 pm

Last weekend The Elgin Conservation and Hunting Heritage Association once again hosted a "Woman in the Wild Outdoors" weekend at the East Elgin Sportsman Association. It's a weekend long event where the woman get to choose from various outdoors related activities they want to participate in. There's everything from 3D archery to hand gun shooting, trap shooting, outdoor cooking, canoeing to name a few, they even had a chance to participate in a beaver skinning clinic. As in past years Vixchix and myself did our best to help introduce some of these woman to the wonderful world of crossbows. :D We ran two sessions on the Saturday as well as an informal "drop in" shoot at the end of the day where other event volunteers got to stop by try out the bows.

First was the talk on crossbow history, parts, safety etc.

All of the participants were automatically entered in a draw for a Matrix 330.

It was another great weekend. Thanks to Excalibur for supplying three bows, targets and arrows for us to use. :D

Fantastic to hear about this. You two are amazing ambassadors for all things outdoorsy. You're walking the talk. Kudos.

I'm curious about all those hot coals. Were you going to fire walk? :D Did you chicken out?

Laura, great to see ya on here again! i just re-read this and realized I forgot to mention that Terry E. helped us out again this year. He is the true ambassador of introducing new shooters to the world of crossbows. Some of you who been on this forum for a long while may remember him as "Turkeylips".
And no Maple, I wasn't about to do a firewalk. With the temps we had that day just walking across the dirt was firewalk enough for me. :D Those were "garbage can chickens", or in this case turkeys. The turkey or chicken is impaled on a spike sticking out of the ground and covered with a garbage can (all the galvanizing was already burnt off). They then pile coals around the base and on top turning it into an oven. That, along with other fine food they made up, became part of our supper that evening.
