NASHVILLE --- The Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency (TWRA) will host its 2011 Becoming an Outdoors-Woman (BOW) workshop June 10-12 in Crossville at the Clyde M. York 4-H Center.
The relaxed atmosphere of the BOW workshop is primarily aimed at women, and is an opportunity for anyone 18 or older to learn outdoor skills usually associated with hunting and fishing. However, it is useful for many other outdoor pursuits and interests. Workshop participants will have a chance to take a variety of courses over the three days and the classes are taught by experts in their respective fields.
This year’s workshop offers classes in firearms and firearms safety, basic fishing skills, advanced fishing techniques, all-terrain vehicle operation, basic archery, boating safety education, outdoor cooking, introduction to hiking/camping/backpacking, beginning fly fishing, nature photography basics, basic canoeing, basic shotgun, backyard habitat, map and compass, introduction to muzzleloading, introduction to turkey hunting, introduction to deer hunting, introduction to waterfowl hunting, reading the woods, introduction to trapping and animal damage control, stream ecology, and boat trailer basics.
The workshop fee is $175 and includes lodging at the Clyde M York 4-H Center, meals, T-shirt, and a 2011-12 Tennessee Hunting and Fishing License. Registration is taken on a first-come, first-serve basis. Applications may be obtained from the TWRA website  at, or any TWRA regional office.
