Registration is taken on a first come, first served basis.
A BOW Field Day will be held Saturday, June 18 at the John Sevier Hunter Education Facility in Knox County.
Attendees will have an opportunity to participate in two classes during the event.
This year’s BOW Field Day offers classes in basic archery, introduction to firearms, introduction to pistol shooting, Dutch oven cooking, women’s self defense, boating safety education and all terrain vehicle operation.
The BOW Field Day will be held rain or shine. The fee is $25 and includes lunch and snacks. Registration is taken on a first-come, first-serve basis.
