Why Range Day

Amanda Lynn discusses the importance of Range Day. 

Empower, EDUCATE & Inspire

Our Mission

Our goal is simple: ​To empower, EDUCATE and inspire women of all ages find their place in the hunting and shooting community. Becoming an outdoors woman. 


Since we opened our doors in 2011, O.W.H.A has been helping women fulfill their potential when it comes to hunting. We do this through personalized instruction, working hand-in-hand on the field and answering questions with experience and thought. 


Giving women a place and community to meet others and join likewise events to further educate themselves on firearms, archery, hunting and fishing. ​Can you imagine being able to get out in the field and experience hunting and fishing as a beginner on a whole new level. Resources, experienced hunters and anglers, and much more will be available to you, in your area, as a diverse group of women come together to make a strong team to empower, educate and inspire others.  We would like to extend the invitation to ALL female hunters to join Ontario Women's Hunting Association, it's FREE. Our goal for O.W.H.A is to be a safe, fun place for women to connect and share their ideas, thoughts, and tips about everything to do with HUNTING! 


Our facebook page is a great place to chat, share photos and adventures, network, and to learn new skills with fellow women of the Ontario hunting community.  https://www.facebook.com/OntarioWomensHuntingAssociation/

 

Take Me Outreach Programs

Supporting people in pursuit of their hunting heritage, Amanda Lynn founded the Range Day and Take Me Hunting Outreach Programs, designed to help new hunters get out there and get started in their adventures. 


Participation in activities outdoors provides you with the opportunity to expand your horizons and learn valuable life lessons that will serve them well beyond their chapter in life.  We want you to be able to have fun and enjoy the outdoors with your peers, but at the same time lay a solid foundation of skills and knowledge which you may build on for the rest of your life. The ultimate goal for this program is to provide an opportunity for YOU to get outdoors, learn about your heritage and carry it forward.


We want to help you to succeed. We believe the morals and values you will develop from participating in the outdoors will carry forth throughout all other aspects of your life, while keeping our hunting heritage alive.  


"In the end, a weekend like this empowers women.  It gave us confidence, a safe place to learn without judgement (there were no stupid questions) and it provided - most of all - a network."   


" There is a generation of girls/ladies/women who need this."
