Since I was a little girl the outdoors has been a big part of my life. My dad got me started in archery at the young age of 3 when we opened our family archery shop. The shop opened in 1996 and is still around to this day. Growing up in the archery shop and hearing all the stories from successful hunters started my passion and drive for hunting that I still have today.
When I harvested my first deer I can still remember the rush of the hunt, and the mixture of emotions I felt after harvesting the beautiful animal I had in front of me. Being able to provide meat for my family is one of the best feelings and the respect and thankfulness for the animal is so important in any hunt. I have learned so much in my years of hunting; this sport has helped me grow as a person and has taught me patience and to never give up on something you’re passionate about no matter what is thrown your way. I always look forward to hunting trips and to see all the beautiful animals and things nature has to offer.
I want to share the sport of archery/hunting with people everywhere, I want to show people who may be new to the sport and are not sure if they can do it that they are capable of doing it, I want people to fall in love with the sport as much as I have and show them all the amazing things and memories hunting comes with.
At what age did you first start hunting?
