Women On Target®is designed to create more hunting and shooting opportunities for women. There are currently about two million American women who hunt and an additional four million who enjoy target shooting. These numbers are steadily increasing.
Fulfilling its mission to "create opportunities, encourage, educate, and mentor women's responsible participation in the recreational shooting and hunting sports," Women On Target® is helping women learn shooting and hunting skills in a safe and supportive women-only atmosphere! In addition to exciting women-only hunts, Women On Target® also sponsors a series of instructional shoots.
For the first time this year, VSSA was awarded money from the NRA Foundation to provide grants to Virginia clubs interested in hosting a Women On Target® clinic. If your VSSA affiliated club would like apply for a mini-grant to assist with your WOT clinic, contact VSSA. All levels of experience are welcome in this program.
What People are Saying About Women On Target®:
"The Women On Target® program encourages women to participate in shooting sports, educates them on how to do so safely and successfully, then provides them with arenas in which to enjoy their newly found skills." -- Doug Pike, outdoor columnist, the Houston Chronicle (3/16/00)
"NRA's Women On Target® also sponsors women's and couple's shooting events, but it has gone one step farther, becoming the first national organization to offer women-only hunts." -- Diana Rupp, editor, Petersen's Outdoors for Women, Petersen's Hunting (July 2000)
"...an excellent and meaningful program that is not only good for the ladies who want to get into hunting, but probably even more important for the future of hunting." -- Bob Gooch, syndicated columnist
