About Amanda:

I am a single mom who is passionate about the outdoors! My son and I do everything together, from traveling to and from rodeos, to shooting bows and hunting together! I have a wonderful family who supports me in all of my fun hobbies.

How I got involved in shooting and or hunting:

My dad is one heck of a bow hunter! We love shooting together in the evenings after work. He has taught me so much, and he hates to brag but he has even been on the cover of GON with a awesome Harris Co, GA buck named Skyscraper! He has traveled the world bow hunting and I am praying the Lord blesses me and allows me with amazing opportunities that he has had!

My brother Ty got me into turkey hunting, and my all time favorite duck hunting! The passion I have for duck hunting is unbelievable strong! I eat, sleep, and dream ducks! I honestly think I love it because of the amazing dog that I get to take with me every time named Limit! (Trained by the amazing Freddy King)

Why I like encouraging/introducing women and beginners into shooting sports/hunting:

In 2014 I have had the opportunity to let 3 girls who have never shot a bow shoot mine! It is an amazing feeling seeing them get so excited that THEY could do it! 2 of the 3 girls have purchased a bow this same year and have already harvested their first deer with it! AMAZING! Seeing the special moment in someone’s eyes when they pull the release and the arrow goes flying straight towards the target… you know they are hooked just like I was the first time I ever shot a bow!!!

Any other outdoor/shooting activities

It’s amazing talking to all the girls I rodeo with and hearing about how they would love to get involved! All of us living in different states it,s hard to get with them to teach them… So sometimes I just have to take my bow to the rodeos!
