Do you want to learn to hunt with a bow? We can help. Join us for our inaugural EatWild Bow hunting workshop. We're teaming up with Adam Foss, an accomplished and passionate bow hunter, and the Feathered Fletch Archery School to bring you a comprehensive bowhunting workshop.

We are hosting the event at the Arosa Ranch where we will spend three days with you breaking down the fundamentals of archery, the principle of hunting with a bow, and planning and implementing a successful bow hunt.  We are stoked to support you on your journey to becoming a successful bowhunter.

 

Where: We will host you at the Arosa Ranch in the heart of BC's best deer country. 

When:The workshop starts at 1 pm on Saturday, April 27, and wraps up on Monday the 29th at 3 pm. Workshop participants are invited to camp on the ranch. There will be a Zoom Pre-workshop call a few weeks before.

Accommodation: The cost of camping is included in the price. Cabins and suites may be available as an upgrade.

Food: Dinners will be provided on Saturday and Sunday nights, and lunches on Saturday, Sunday, and Monday.

Workshop participants will need to bring their breakfast program. 

What do you need:

Bows will be provided for the archery clinic portion of the workshop. Participants can bring their own bows.

Our partners at Hardcore Archery & Hunting are offering an archery starter package for the workshop ($930 or $1300). Participants can order the package and it will be delivered to the workshop location. Contact Ken at the shop and ask for the EatWild starter package.

You will need to bring warm clothes, hiking boots, and camping gear. We will provide a comprehensive list of stuff to bring before the workshop.
