CORBIN, Ky. – Cumberland Falls State Resort Park will host an “Explore Bowhunting” weekend March 30-April 1.
Explore Bowhunting is a one-of-a-kind program that encompasses the outdoor skills used not only for bowhunting, but for wildlife watching, photography and filming. Created by the Archery Trade Association, Explore Bowhunting hopes to connect youths with the outdoors through archery and enhance their outdoors experiences.
Designed for children ages 11-17, the program will expose students to a variety of hands-on activities ranging from building a blind, wildlife tracking and identification, wildlife scents and calls, camouflage, deer anatomy and ecology and much more. The program starts Friday, March 30, at 6 p.m. and runs through noon Sunday, April 1.
The weekend seminar would be suitable for a parent and child to attend together to learn more about this sport as well as wildlife appreciation and outdoors experiences. The park is offering a package for $179 plus tax for two nights’ lodging, Saturday dinner for two and the course materials. The course and Saturday dinner only is $40 per person.
