CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — Women interested in learning outdoor skills ranging from survival in the cold to ice fishing can sign up for a one-day workshop offered by the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department.
Registration for the Feb. 15 program opens Jan. 6, and space is limited. The $55 fee covers the workshop, lunch and most equipment uses. The program is held at the Owl Brook Hunter Education Center in Holderness.
