Join other women for this workshop that focuses on the basics of shotgun safety, handling, and technique, with several hours for shooting clay targets. Skills are taught by certified instructors and all equipment and supplies are provided by the WOW program.

At the conclusion of this workshop, women will be able to identify and locate the major parts of a shotgun, barrel sizes, and five different types of actions. They will understand the components of a shotgun, how a shotgun operates and the rules for safe shooting. Women will have the opportunity to try pump, hinge, and semi-automatic actions.

Women attending will learn and be able to demonstrate how to handle a shotgun in a safe manner, how to safely load, unload, and carry a shotgun. They will clean a shotgun and discuss storage options.

Participants will be introduced to basic trapshooting skills. These include establishing dominant eye, proper stance, how to mount a shotgun, eye and barrel placement, and the all-important follow-through. Each woman will have the opportunity to shoot at moving clay targets.

Take the challenge – become a Washington Outdoor Woman!
