The NSSF grant has allowed us to reach a larger audience through our new Women on the Wing initiative. We have hosted traditional Learn to Hunt and Learn to Shoot events, along with new weekend experiences that provides an immersive and social experience for mentees. Additionally, we were able to host a Hunter Mentor Training and Women’s Learn to Wing-shoot sessions at our National Pheasant Fest & Quail Classic to reach a larger and more diverse audience.
