New England Backcountry Hunters and Anglers Rendezvous is coming up August 10-12, 201

New England Backcountry Hunters and Anglers (BHA) invites anyone with an interest in hunting, fishing, gathering wild foods, or other outdoor skills to attend the upcoming rendezvous August 10, 11, and 12 on Swan Island in the Kennebec River off Richmond.

Workshops will be presented by experienced outdoorsmen and women throughout the weekend will include fly casting, map-and-compass and smartphone wilderness navigation, backcountry camping gear, knife building, wild-foods foraging and cooking, do-it-yourself Western hunting, and more. On Saturday evening attendees will be sharing in a wild- and local-foods potluck dinner and an open-mic storytelling event. Attendees will be able to enjoy an archery course along woods trails, as well as opportunities for hiking, cycling, fishing, swimming and spending time with like-minded outdoor enthusiasts.

For those who are new to the outdoors or curious about hunting as a source of wild food or as an intense, skill-based activity, New England BHA will be introducing its new Hunting Mentor Program, which pairs experienced hunters with those who are keen to learn more.
