LDWF offers course for women

Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries (LDWF) and Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries Foundation (LAWFF) will hold the next Mini Becoming an Outdoor Woman (BOW) workshop, Falconry, in January.

Master Falconer Rusty Scarborough will use his trained bird of prey to demonstrate falconry hunting techniques. Participants should be prepared to be outdoors and able to hike off trail and through uneven terrain.

The workshop, for women 18 and older, will take place from 2 p.m. until dusk on January 22, 2022 at Loggy Bayou Plantation in Ringgold, rain or shine. Cost is $35. All equipment and supper will be provided, and registration for this event is limited to a first-come, first-served basis. 

Falconry is a hunting sport dating back more than 3,000 years, using trained birds of prey such as hawks, falcons, eagles and owls to catch small game.

Mini BOW is a program designed to introduce women to outdoor activities. A branch from the highly-popular “Becoming an Outdoors-Woman workshop,” the Mini BOW provides the same introductory level hands-on outdoor educational courses on a smaller scale.
