  Sounds like a great program


Sounds like a great program that North Dakota offers to women wanting to become more involved or educated on the outdoors and outdoor activities.  A great focus to get more females into the outdoors and hopefully into the sport of hunting.  There are definitely two workshops within the program that would be of great benefit to the participants and this is the tracking workshop as well as the outdoor survival workshop.  The dog sledding sounds pretty cool to me as well.  Anyhow a great program with some excellent workshops.  Kudos to North Dakota with their efforts on generating more woman involvement.
