BECOMING AN OUTDOORS-WOMAN

Liz Barthel Memorial Scholarship

Liz Barthel was known throughout the South as one of the top female bowhunters.  She was dedicated to supporting bowhunting, archery, and wildlife and conservation organizations.  Her many accomplishments to promote women and children in the sports included BOW, archery instructor, Jakes Day event organizer, committee member for the Twin City Longbeards, organized the 1st all ladies Chapter of the NWTF, one of the 1st two women to serve on the Louisiana State Board of Directors for NWTF, and the 1st woman in La. to complete a “Grand Slam” of Wild Turkey.  Liz was on the pro-staff of Hoyt, LaCrosse, Knight & Hale, Feather-Flex, Savage Systems, Scott Archery, Scent Shield, Indian Archery and many more. 

Liz played an instrumental part in establishing the 1st Louisiana BOW workshop and continued her support with each workshop until her untimely death.  She was a former LDWF employee that loved hunting and all aspects of wildlife. Liz enriched the lives of many people through her goals and accomplishments and sought after other women to reach and succeed in their goals.   Her wish is continued by providing well deserved women a chance to follow their outdoor dreams through the Liz Barthel Memorial Scholarship.
