“While I watched my animal through the scope and waited for her to turn broadside, I thought about the responsibility that comes with harvesting an animal, and what it means to be a good steward of that life. I feel a deeper commitment to the conservation of our Wyoming wildlife, and connected to our land in a wholly different way. As a life-time outdoors person, this surprised me.” – 2015 Hunt Participant
The Wyoming Women’s Antelope Hunt was founded in 2013 by the Wyoming Women’s Foundation as a opportunity for mentoring and developing camaraderie between women.
Hunting is a long-standing Wyoming tradition and a skill that honors our state’s cultural roots. Teaching women to hunt can help them feed their families nutritious food and fulfills WYWF’s mission of investing in economic self-sufficiency of women.
The event develops new hunters by offering scholarships and hunter education to women who otherwise may not get the opportunity to hunt and pairs them with conservation-minded guides and experienced women hunting partners for maximum learning opportunities.
