Allegheny and Upland Bird Hunt Chapters Women’s Introduction to Wingshooting

July 20 @ 12:00 pm - July 21 @ 2:00 pm

We are proud will offer our popular Women’s Introduction to Wingshooting program at the Mt. Jewett Sportsmen’s Club on July 20-21 and August 24-25. Women’s Introduction to Wingshooting is a course for women and taught by women. On both Saturdays, the course starts at noon and ends at 4 p.m. On both Sundays, the course starts at 10 a.m. and ends at 2 p.m.

Register by contacting Bethany Ford at BJMF989@gmail.com. Attendance is required for both weekends to graduate from the program. Lodging is available, if needed, but is limited.

A bird hunt will be offered to the graduates on Sunday, September 8, at a nearby sportsmen’s club.

No pre-knowledge of shooting is required. “We pride ourselves on helping a woman who has never even held a shotgun before learn how to become a wingshooter,” says Sue McClelland of Smethport, one of the instructors. “And owning a shotgun is not necessary; we have shotguns that the attendees can try for size and then use during the program. When you finish this training you can go on and shoot at targets for fun or hunt your choice of birds.”

You must register to attend this course, and it is on a first-come, first-served registration basis. “We only take twenty women into the program each year so we can maintain the quality,” offers Maureen McDonald of Coudersport, another instructor.
