All Day

Lone Cone State Wildlife Area


Women who want to gain valuable outdoor skills, learn about wildlife and receive an introduction to hunting and fishing are invited to attend a “Cast and Blast” weekend workshop. The event is limited to 15-20 women, 18 years and older; those interested must submit an application. At the event, women will learn the basics of fly fishing, shotgun shooting, archery, wildlife watching and camping. Participants will also learn about the basics of wildlife management. Colorado Parks and Wildlife will supply all sporting equipment: shotguns, ammunition, bows and arrows, and fly rods and tackle. Those who have a 20-gauge shotgun, fishing or archery gear can bring their own. Participants must have a current Colorado fishing license. Participants will need to bring their own camping gear; they can camp in their own tents or sleep in a cabin. All food will be provided. Those with dietary restrictions, however, should bring their own supplies. A $40 deposit will be required from those chosen to participate; the money will be returned to participants the first day of the event. Registration deadline is June 5.

June 21-23. At the Jim Olterman/Lone Cone State Wildlife Area, located about 25 miles south of Norwood.
