Water'n Woods is a program that delivers the Canadian Firearms Safety Course (CFSC) and Hunters Education (HE) through a hands on, interactive program that provides a more dynamic learning environment, bringing learning to life. Individuals will walk away certified hunters with a developed knowledge and skill base, better understanding of wildlife, wildlife management, sustaining wildlife, their habitat and the role hunter's play in conservation.
COVID has changed the look of our Water'n Woods program. What was once a 5 day 4 night camping adventure is now geared to be delivered in smaller groups over 2 days. This change will allow use the ability to deliver the program through COVID restrictions and provides a more intimate learning environment.
Youth who participate in the Water'n Woods program become automatic Junior members of the WTH. Jr. members are then eligible to apply for mentor hunts like the Wild Turkey Hunt in Maine, Pheasant Hunt and other local hunting opportunities partnered with other organizations. Notifications of opportunities are distributed through email.
The program has been funded by the Nova Scotia Habitat Conservation Fund and is sponsored by SPYPOINT CANADA.
This program is offered to youth 12 years and older through an application process and WTH members who have yet to obtain their licenses.
Dates for 2021 have not been announced yet. Please check back.
Share the Harvest is a collaboration between the NS Women That Hunt Association and the Truro Homeless Shelter, whereby Women That Hunt are committed to sharing their harvest on a monthly basis, supporting a much needed community resource.
Some of the best adventures are the ones never planned for!
Our #ONLOCATION initiative is about letting you know where we are going to be, so you may join in.
When life is busy, it's sometimes hard to nail down a date and with family, things can change quickly. This is a way for WTH to let you know what is happening a few days or few hours out. Sometimes things shift, providing an opportunity to fit something fun in. This is what #ONLOCATION is all about.
Here is how it works. Make sure you follow our social media platforms and set your notification to on. When one of our board members is #ONLOCATION information and details will be shared. Facebook/Instagram/Twitter @womenthathunt. Join us #ONLOCATION. It could be fishing, fiddlehead picking, kayaking, blueberry picking...anything really. You never know what will be up to. Be sure to check out the calendar for other opportunities.
The WTH are pleased to announce the introduction of the Training Bursary. Active members of the WTH will be able to apply to receive funding to cover the cost of your Canadian Firearms Safety Course and/or Hunters Education course.
This is how it works:
Women That Hunt are certified instructors and teach on a monthly basis. Each time we host a course you will receive notice and have the opportunity to submit your name to be drawn as the recipient for the specific course outlined in the application. Individuals included under your membership can also apply (Spouse/partner and children over 12)
One selected applicant, per course, will receive the Training Bursary specific to the date and criteria outlined in the application. Each draw may have different locations and pertain to different age groups. Please be sure to read the criteria before submitting your application, ensuring it applies to you. A new application will be sent to our member database prior to each course, and therefore a new submission process will begin. You can reapply each time as long as the criteria is met, until you are a lucky recipient.
Only active members are eligible to apply, and only direct family members included in your membership application can apply (Spouse/partner and children). If you know of someone who may be interested in this benefit please encourage them to join the Women That Hunt and be an active member. It is through membership fundraising our organization can offer this.
