This is great! There are 6 girls in my troop, all of whom are only children, and their fathers are all hunters! I called the Daniel Boone Conservation Center and was asking about a group rate for the G.Scouts. He replied that he never had any girls through there before, only Boy Scouts. So they are excited too. They will start out with bow/arrow and work their way up.

My administration has always supported teaching children about firearms, regardless of gender.

Awsome!!! I was never in Girl Scouts, but I did look into it in about the third grade. I had a couple of friends in and they must have had a lousy leader; it was all about baking, jump rope, arts, and crafts. The girls always looked bored and who could blame them. That is when I decided scouts wasn't for me. You sound like a damn fine scout leader to me. I wish the girls at my school had someone interested in leaving the school library with them every now and then! Have fun!

I was never in Scouts either.
This is actually my 1st year leading, and the 4th year in for the girls. We staged a coup as the last leader was quite lazy. It was fine to glue crap to crud when you are in 1st and 2nd grade, but when you hit middle school, it's time to get outdoors! So 2 other moms and I took the troop.

Way cool!! I thought about Girl Scouts until I heard about the leader, who wouldn't allow the girls to go near knives, let alone guns.

A lot of leaders are like that. Lame. The girls get the choice of wanting to, or not. There are so many choices in life I want to offer them variety. My daughter loves bow/arrow and target practice.

One hard thing about it is, schools tell them one thing, to be afraid.....stay away from.....weaponry and such. When how can that be, anyone ever hear of hunting season?

Bow and arrow are also on my list of things to try

Unfortunately, I live south of Boston, where hunting is nonexistent. Any hunting is usually done in the central and western part of the state.
