Hi, just wondering if anyone has done a WITO event? I finally discovered them after assuming PA did not have this kind of opportunity for women since the BOW chapter is defunct (I did a BOW weekend in Delaware). Now I know they are out there, but there is not really detailed information available. Are they hard to get into? Worthwhile?

My wife does a WITO event every year. Give her (Tammy) a call at 240-522-2150. I'm sure she would be happy to have you attend her event.

I see you guys have had Jakes hunts in the past. Do you still do this? It's great that you take the time for these outreach events.

I teach at the one that the SE silver spurs puts on. It is generally the weekend after Labor day in Montgomery co. Been doing it a couple years, this past year we didn't have as good of a turn out as other years. Only 56 women compared to 96 the year before. I also teach Women on Target in May every year. Let me know if you need more info.

I just read you also have children. The weekend before Labor day I teach at the Montgomery county Youth Field day. It's for children 9-14.

I know about the Montco Field Day - we're very excited about it this year. I had Lyme disease last August and was not organized enough to schedule my daughter for it (she's 9, will be 10). She's really interested - we probably would not have gotten into all of this if it weren't for her being interested.

I might be able to up your numbers for the WITO. I have a list of people in Philly who are interested in learning to hunt (mostly people doing urban agriculture work of some sort) and I can ask the women who've indicated that they would like to get together. I am also part of a mom's group with 5 or 6 women who'd said they'd like to learn to hunt or learn shooting sports. Most of them don't have family members or husbands who hunt so things like WITO are great. I would like to learn more about Women on Target in May. I'll PM you my email address if you want to send it that way.

That would be fine. I'll give you Kathy's E-mail address. She runs the WOT & WITO. WOT is at Boulder Valley Sportsmen. Youth field day & WITO are at Hart Boy Scout camp. I teach the archery at these events & am the archery chairperson at BVSA.
