Via the CCFR
Women have long had a quiet, less visible presence in the firearms community. While women lead the industry in growth, both in the hunting and sport shooting genres, women’s programs have been noticeably absent in our community at large.
The CCFR introduced a Women of the CCFR program nearing the end of 2015 and to date we have implemented 9 ladies events, from range days to a guided goose hunt. The program is headed up by Kelly Wheaton, VP of Women’s Programming and a Project Mapleseed instructor with a passion for introducing new female shooters to the shooting sports. “Women are more open to trying something that may have been intimidating before, when introduced to it by another woman. Our ladies events have evolved into the most epic girls day out type of events ever”, said Wheaton.
