The Albuquerque Journal tells about a "outdoor skills" weekend camp for women taught by Bow New Mexico. It's sponsored by New Mexico Game and Fish and held at the NRA "Whittington Center." Women learn hunting and fishing and the weekend prominently features weaponry.
Following a rigorous day of classes, campers will enjoy various types of entertainment, including performances by cowgirl poet Peggy Godfrey and magician Diane Shepard.
The evenings will also feature a "how-to-flirt" class, various craft activities and shooting exercises.
Soapmaking too. This is a little sad and scary. Unarmed, I've roamed New Mexico for nearly half a century. Times are a changing, but it is sobering that busloads of 125 people may associate their first outdoors experience with shooting a gun.
That these are grown women that would feel a need to learn to flirt is no less alarming. But then, NRA also hosts a summer camp to teach 13 year olds to stalk and kill. Coco
