Beyond BOWs are venues to practice and hone the basic skills learned at a BOW weekend workshop in the real world, while still having supportive instructors on hand to coach and encourage them. Beyond BOWs build on the beginner’s skills, teach more advanced skills, and may be conducted almost entirely in an outdoors setting. Beyond BOWs may occasionally be tailored to families. BOW and Beyond BOW offerings are made possible by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission
