Want to learn how to shoot a shotgun, flintlock, caplock or muzzle loader?
You can learn those skills and more if you attend the "Becoming an Outdoorswoman Weekend" in June. It's co-sponsored by the Massachusetts Division of Fisheries and Wildlife and the Friends of the NRA.
Attendees will learn how to drive an all-terrain vehicle, paddle a canoe, cook wild game, and use a compass. There's even a self-defense class that teaches you how to use a walking stick or ski pole as a weapon.
The weekend-long workshop will take place June 6-8 in Lenox. Registration forms can be downloaded here.
