This time of year, when we are in the strange phase where it isn't quite winter and isn't quite spring, really has me craving warmer weather and an adventure into the great outdoors.

This Is The Perfect Time to Start Thinking About Getting Outdoors

There is something really magical about sitting around a campfire, out in the middle of nowhere, and seeing the vast and infinite sky full of stars above. I love getting away from civilization to spend time outdoors. Being in nature is truly one of life's simple pleasures. It is always a bonus if you happen to be able to drop a line in the water and do some fishing too (with a proper license of course!)

Indiana Offers a Number of Outdoor Recreation Options

There are of course a number of other amazing outdoor activities that you can enjoy here in the Hoosier State, aside from camping. Personally, I prefer recreational shooting when it comes to both firearms and bows but hunting is a popular outdoor activity across Indiana - for large game like deer or smaller game like squirrels and rabbits.

The Outdoors Aren't Just for Men

I think that when it comes to outdoor activities, a lot of women find themselves shying away from taking the lead on things like camping, hunting, and fishing but we don't have to. There is a three-day workshop in Northern Indiana that can teach you all kinds of skills to whip you into the outdoors-woman of your dreams.

What Is Indiana BOW?

The Indiana BOW Workshop - BOW stands for Becoming an Outdoors-Woman by the way - is an intensive workshop that will teach any number of outdoor skills that will have you ready to venture out into nature in just three short days.

Whether you've never stepped foot in the woods or you're a seasoned outdoor enthusiast, you'll have a wild time at Indiana's Becoming an Outdoors-Woman workshop, The program is designed for women 18-80+ to learn outdoor skills in a relaxed, low-pressure environment. Shoot clay targets, catch a trophy bass, become a campfire gourmet cook, make a fur hat, spot rare wild birds, or learn to track deer...it's up to you. Design your own outdoor experience to match your interests!

The list of skills available to choose from is nothing short of impressive and you may find it difficult to narrow it down to just the four that you will get to choose to learn. From firearm safety and basic archery to more advanced skills like trailer handling or wild edible identification, there are plenty of options to choose from to craft your perfect three days of learning.
