In 2004, when Deb Ferns and Kay Miculek started “Babes with Bullets, Women’s Action Shooting Camps”, there was literally no other shooting academy in the world that existed to cater specifically to women, where the instructors were all female national and world champions. With the help of Foundation Sponsor Smith & Wesson all the loaner equipment is also supplied for the gals to be able to “try before they buy.”
Fast forward to 2020 and Deb Ferns, Babes with Bullets co-founder/camp director, has created another women’s program called LACE; Ladies Adventure Camp Experience. As Deb noted “I didn’t start hunting until my mid-50’s and for years have wanted to see more women mentoring other women in both hunting and fishing adventures. LACE is one of my long time dreams coming to life!”
Through LACE women will have the opportunity to fish and hunt with Deb and her crew; who are all either Babes with Bullets instructors or Babes alum who are experts in the hunting fields. The LACE program will kick off with a fishing program on the White River in Arkansas. The program incorporates established vendors, user friendly lodges plus all the gear (whether fishing rods or hunting rifles/shotguns) are provided. In other words you show up for the LACE program with the recommended clothing list that will be provided and be ready to have a good time! LACE is an excellent way for the novice or experienced outdoor woman to join in the unique experience of being on an adventure with other women. Check it out and if you have questions reach out to Deb by email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
