Where Are the Women?
By David E. Petzal and Phil Bourjaily
One of the articles of faith in the shooting industry is that the future of the gunpowder sports will be influenced by women; that for the first time, we’re going to see a real, meaningful influx of female hunters and shooters.
If you go to the SHOT Show, you now see as many women as men, but I don't know if they are they showing up in serious numbers at ranges and in hunting camps.
What do you see happening? If they aren’t coming into shooting and hunting, why not?
And if there are any women reading this blog, I’d appreciate it if you would step forward now and be counted.
