All these programs and

All these programs and workshops that so many states are offering now are great. This one is aimed primarily at women but wow there are some great classes listed. The price is a little steep but not out of range for all the things you can choose from to study. It's to bad it's only for the weekend as I don't see how you would be able to possibly take it all in. I wonder if they offer a similar weekend for men as well because there is so many things to di even if you have been a hunter all your life like most of us.

Good job Alaska on promoting the sport and opening new doors for more people to get involved.
