Raised at the foot of the Nebraska Sandhills by a family who loved the outdoors, hunting and fishing. Angie Kokes learned early on that if you want something you better be willing to work for it. She attributes the character and values she has today to being raised with a never quit attitude.
Angie began hunting and fishing at a very young age, tagging along with her dad for any hunt he’d take her along on, and with her family and grandparents on weekend fishing trips. She hunted and fished all through grade school and high school. Her first year of college she made enough money selling furs to make her very first solo rifle purchase.
Married now for seventeen years to her husband Adam, the two hunt, fish, trap and are full time farmers and ranchers. The couple also own and operate a tack & trailer sales business. As a farmer and rancher Angie says being in the outdoors is not just a weekend event, it is everyday life. Angie’s home is situated on the North Loup River with close proximity to 3 amazing lakes and she takes full advantage of all of the hunting, trapping and fishing the area has to offer. She embraces the life she has been blessed with on the farm and the ability to witness nature in all it’s splendor all day, everyday.
While Angie is most passionate about bow hunting, she will tell you if it can be hunted she either hunts it already or will be trying it in the future. Among her favorites along with bow hunting whitetail and mule deer are duck & goose hunting, upland game birds, dove hunting, calling coyotes, raccoon hunting, hog hunting and when she’s not hunting you will find her on the river or lake somewhere fishing. If it’s outdoors you’ll find Angie somewhere near by.
Angie is adamant about sharing her passions with others and especially women, making joining Shoot Like a Girl such an honor! It is a huge blessing to be a part of a team who encourages and supports women to get outdoors!
