Bowfishing 101 Seminar Planned March 20-21 At Rough River
FALLS OF ROUGH, Ky. -- The Passing on the Tradition Support Group has teamed up with the Kentucky Department of Parks to offer free Bowfishing training seminars at resort parks across the state during 2009. The first seminar is March 20-21 at Rough River Dam State Resort Park.
The Bowfishing 101 Training Seminars are for adults and youths who would like to learn more about this fast action archery sport. Participants will learn the basics of hunting fish with a bow and arrow. The program explains the types of equipment and safety practices, as well as how bowfishing plays an important role in rough fish conservation.
The free seminar starts Friday night and continues Saturday with two sessions, one being the classroom portion, and the second is the hands on experience. No equipment is needed to attend this seminar. All equipment is provided but you may bring your own equipment. Pre-registration is required because class size is limited. Please call the park for more information or to make reservations if you wish to stay overnight. 1-800-325-1713.
Bowfishing seminars are also planned for Kenlake State Resort Park April 17-18; Barren River State Resort Park June 12-13 and Jenny Wiley State Resort Park July 17-18. For more information about the support group, visit http://www.bowfishingstuff.com/main.htm
