Scholarships Available for Wyoming Women’s Antelope Hunt

The Wyoming Women’s Foundation is offering scholarships to pay participation expenses for women interested in joining the 2013 Wyoming Women’s Antelope Hunt.

The hunt, which is the first of its kind, will be held Oct. 3-6, 2013 at the Ranch at Ucross in northeastern Wyoming. The scholarship covers the cost of hunting on private lands, a hunting license, lodging and meals for the event.

Scholarship applicants must be women over the age of 18. The online application needs to be completed by 5 p.m. on Monday, Sept. 9 at wyomingwomensantlopehunt.org.

The event will provide a guided antelope hunt for 50 women, including Wyoming’s First Lady Carol Mead and U.S. Representative Cynthia Lummis.
