I am 23 years old and have been going hunting with my dad since I was 3 years old. My sister Samantha and I have our own dog training business that we have been running since 2011.
How I got involved in shooting and or hunting:
I guess you could say I was a Daddy’s Girl from a very young age. I wanted to go wherever he went and do whatever he did…even sitting in the woods when it was freezing cold and being quiet to see if God would provide us a deer that day. Once my dad saw that I was crazy about the outdoors, instead of getting baby dolls and frilly dresses at Christmas…I got a new gun or bow and camo, tree stands, duck calls, and the list goes on.
Why I like encouraging/introducing women and beginners into shooting sports/hunting:
I love seeing new people (especially girls) get involved in shooting and hunting because I know how much I love it and I want everybody to have the same opportunity. I have met so many girls over the years that thought it was really cool that I had someone to take me hunting and teach me how to shoot. Many of them did not have someone in their lives that had the patience to take them hunting – their dads did not take the time with them because they were girls.
