The participation of women in hunting organizations in many countries is increasing continually. In Finland alone there are over 22,000 hunting women, and in Poland the number is growing from day to day and now it exceeds 4000. The aim of the event is to bring together huntresses from all over the world to provide a forum for discussions, while focusing on huntresses and their roles in conservation.
