Welcome to our website! Whether you are young or old, a beginning or advanced angler or hunter, we hope you find these pages useful.
Who are “we”? A group of Minnesota women and girls who love to be outdoors. We thoroughly enjoy fishing and hunting and want to bring those time-honored sports to other like-minded individuals and families. Our mission is “to increase hunting and fishing participation by Minnesota women of all ages and backgrounds through education, inspiration and empowerment”.
Join us as we explore our beautiful state and all it has to offer. Join us, as fellow volunteers, in bringing the sports of fishing and hunting to others who will cherish their time afield and pass their enthusiasm, knowledge and skills to future generations.
