This one is for the ladies.
Cabela’s stores in Texas will celebrate the growing number of women enjoying the outdoors with Ladies Day Out, Oct. 5, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
This bi-annual event encourages ladies to try out the latest outdoor apparel, camping gear, personal firearms and other supplies. The first 100 women to register at the store will receive a free gift and all women who attend and participate in the event will be invited to enjoy the employee discount on all purchases.
With more than 5 million women participating in shooting sports, an increase of 46.5 percent since 2001, this growing demographic will enjoy classes including
an interactive archery shooting experience, introduction to firearms and a refuse to be a victim course.
According to the National Shooting Sports Foundation, new target shooters–those who have taken up the sport in the last five years–are younger, female and urban when compared to established target shooters, or those participating for more than five years.
For women seeking to expand their knowledge and expertise in other areas, such as outdoor cooking, fly tying, orienteering and wilderness survival, classes will include fishing, camping, cooking with a Dutch oven and more.
Events vary based on location and ladies in attendance will have an opportunity to meet local experts from the guys from Backwoods Bloodline and classes will be taught by local experts and are free of charge.
