Women of Inspiration
in Shooting Sports
Shoot Like a Girl is running a series of articles about women who inspire us to participate in shooting sports. These women have achieved, or are in the process of achieving, legacy status in the industry. Our featured Women of Inspiration come from the Pro-Staff shooters for Hunter Safety System, a company dedicated to ensuring the safety of all of us tree stand hunters. We were able to get together with Ginger Morehead of Stayin’ Safe w/Jessie and Ginger for our second featured Woman of Inspiration in this series.

Getting FIT for Hunting
To all of our Shoot Like A Girl Family 2011 has come to a successful conclusion, what a year with many highs! The biggest high was the selection of Shoot Like A Girl President, Karen Butler as one of Outdoor Life Magazines 25 Leaders In Hunting, Fishing & Conservation, The list of honorees for the year included David Allen, President of Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, (a 2012 Shoot Like A Girl corporate sponsor), Jason Hairston, founder of Sitka Clothing, and Dick Kirby, founder of Quaker Boy Game Calls. This was an honor received due to your continuing support. It shows that women continue to grow as a significant influence in the outdoor industry. Since 2009 we put over 1500 women through the Test Flights. Shoot Like A Girl Test Flights are designed to give women the opportunity to shoot bows from top manufacturers in draw lengths and weights that fit the average gal. This is a once in a life time opportunity, and thankfully ladies are taking advantage of it. We have had the pleasure of helping women choose the bow that is right for them. We have had many confirmed bow sales, and have helped increase the number of ladies who are hunting. This is significant as studies show that households with a hunting/shooting female parent 50% of the daughters and 63% of the sons will become hunters/shooters, proving once again how influential women are to the continued health of our hunting and shooting heritage.
The year 2012 is shaping up to be even bigger, our Test Flight lineup includes bows from BowTech, Hoyt, Limbsaver, Mathews, and PSE!
Shoot Like A Girl will continue to support research in the hunt for a cure for breast cancer. We are excited and proud to announce we will be partnering with The Pink Arrow Project this year. In 2011, you helped Shoot Like A Girl raise over $9,000 for Breast Cancer Research through your participation in the Shoot For The Girls, mail in tournament! A big thank you to all who participated and the clubs and organizations who promoted the events.
At this time Shoot Like A Girl will be attending 10 events in 2012. With the help of our corporate sponsors we will be attending events across the country including the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation National Elk Camp in Las Vegas, NV and the National Wild Turkey Federation Show in Nashville, TN! We are very selective in who we partner with as corporate sponsors, and pleased that we are now partnered with
Hunter Safety System, The Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, Leupold, Game Plan Gear, BowTech, Hoyt Archery, LimbSaver, Smith Optics Elite, Mathews, PSE, Victory Archery, Just For Does, ThermaCell, Waffle House, Prois, Haley Vines, Bohning, Muzzy, Gerbings Heated Clothing, Mossy Oak and ASA. Corporations who wish to join us in our effort to empower more women to participate in shooting sports should contact us with our contact form. So 2012 is shaping up to be a very exciting year and Shoot Like A Girl is looking forward to seeing all of you out at the shows and the shoots. Thank you for all you have done to increase the presence of women in the outdoors. Stay safe, keep your eye on the target and Shoot Like A Girl!
