Women’s Only Hunter Education Classes Support: Demand was extremely high for the women only class being held at the Black Diamond Gun Club on Sunday, November 1. Coordinator Dazey worked with the instructor team to help them prepare and also fielded many questions from students who wished to take hunter education in an all-female environment. Demand was so high that the instructor team will hold a second women only class on Sunday, December 6, at the BDGC. In spite of the rain starting to pour five minutes before the field course and stopping five minutes after the field course ended, the entire course was a huge success and, according to evaluations turned in by the students, was much appreciated. The instructor team was interviewed on NPR about why they offered a women only class and were able to articulate the advantages of offering classes targeted to the fastest growing demographic in the shooting sports world. Dazey assisted the instructors to secure a female enforcement officer for the December class. This will be a good opportunity to show some of the opportunities for women at WDFW.
