A new effort in Georgia aims to boost female participation in outdoor sports.

The state Department of Natural Resources is holding a weekend program at the Charlie Elliott Wildlife Center near Mansfield.

Women attending can take classes in how to shoot sporting clays, small game hunting, fishing, kayaking and survival skills.

Firearms safety and hunter education classes will also be offered.

The program will run November 2 - 4.
