Women Hunters' Numbers "Surge"

The number of women hunting in America "surged by 25 percent between 2006 and 2011," according to National Geographic.
 "There is definitely a high demand. We have over 3,000 women on our mailing list, and workshops fill up quickly," says Patricia Handy, Information & Education Program Manager at the Department of Natural Resources in Maryland.
There is also a commercial angle—more products for women—and you will see both angles represented in Women's Outdoor News in the sidebar under "Elsewhere."
