Women in the Woods Elk Camp 2022

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’). 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 
  • Hike several miles per day gaining and losing elevation while carrying a backpack 
  • Be prepared for cold 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.
