    Description

    A total of 321 women (73 percent) responded to the 2001 Illinois Becoming an Outdoors-Woman (BOW) Survey. All had signed up for and/or participated in BOW workshops. Eighty-three percent of the women had attended one or more workshops and most participated in these workshops to develop or improve their skills in outdoor activities. During the previous 12 months, 72 percent of the women had participated in hiking, 60 percent had fished, and 19 percent had hunted. Three-fourths of the women participated in outdoor activities with their husband/boyfriend. "No one to go with" was identified by participants as the most important constraint to participating in outdoor activities. The most important inducements for participation were "Training to develop skills," "Someone to go with," and "More time." Survey respondents' personal characteristics and levels of participation in hunting and other outdoor activities are also presented.
