Female hunter numbers continue to rise in Minnesota

Nearly 70,000 of Minnesota's 550,000 hunters are women, compared to 55,000 female hunters in 2010. Growth is thanks in part to Becoming An Outdoors Woman program, the state's training and research effort that aims to increase women's interest in hunting.
