Women in the Woods (WitW) Elk Camp offers an intensive educational three-day hunting experience. During this workshop participants will learn skills needed to tackle future big game hunting endeavors. Over the weekend we will learn:

  • The ethics of hunting and how it is used as a wildlife management tool
  • How to identify elk habitat
  • Species identification and wildlife regulations
  • Active hunting techniques including:
    • What to pack in your bag for different types of hunts
    • Glassing
    • Identifying glassing locations
    • How to move through big-game habitat when hunting
    • Field dressing and packout
    • Butchering a big game animal

Please Note: All ‘Women in the Woods’ events are geared towards women, non-binary, and those in the LGBTQ+ community, but all are welcome.  


While this hunt will mimic a backcountry hunt, it will take place on a private cattle ranch at high elevation (9000’) in the summer. All participants must:

  • Be aged 18 years or older
  • Respect the landowners property and land-use expectations
  • Respect all participants and facilitators 
  • Make safety your first priority, always
  • Be comfortable sleeping outdoors (in a tent) 
  • Hike several miles per day gaining and losing elevation while carrying a backpack
  • Be prepared for hot temperatures and high elevations
  • Listen to and adhere to instructions from mentors and facilitators

Participant Application: This event is geared towards providing folks with personalized 2 to 1 instruction with our mentors. To that end we are limiting the event to 6 total participants.
