Women’s Squirrel Hunt

    Women’s Archery Deer Hunt

    October 18-20, 2007

     If you have ever thought about hunting squirrels or archery deer hunting, but just didn’t know how to go about it or if you are an experienced hunter that would like to join a group of like-minded women for a hunt, then this hunt is for you. There is no structured instruction, but a limited number of women will be available to assist you if needed.

     We have booked the Lantz House, a farmhouse owned and operated by Wheeling Jesuit University, which adjoins Lewis Wetzel Wildlife Management Area near Jacksonburg, Wetzel County to stay in the nights of October 17, 18, and 19. To get to Lantz House, turn right on County Route 82 in Jacksonburg, cross the railroad tracks and take the first right to the farm. The farm is reserved for the three days and you may choose to hunt all or part of these days. You may arrive on Wednesday evening October 17 if you wish.

     Archery Hunt: If you choose to take part in this hunt you must be an experienced archer with your own equipment (not borrowed) and show proficiency. You do not necessarily need to have hunted deer before but should have the equipment to do so. We suggest that you attempt to make all three days of the hunt to better ensure your success.

     Squirrel Hunt: bring your own 22 caliber rifle or shotgun with appropriate ammunition. Blaze orange is not required, but is recommended.

    In order to participate, you must be at least 18 years of age. Anyone born on or after January 1, 1974 must have completed a hunter safety course.

    We will be providing supper on Thursday and Friday. If anyone is successful on the squirrel hunt and would like to donate some squirrels to the pot, we will prepare a squirrel potpie on Friday evening. We will also be providing bottled water and coffee throughout the hunt. All other meals and drinks are the responsibility of the participant. A full kitchen is available.

     Firearm and ammunition

     Sleeping bag and pillow or other appropriate bedding

     Towel, soap and other personal toiletries
