As a father of two amazing daughters I strive to show my daughters that they can do anything they want. That just because they are girls this doesn’t mean they can’t get out there and compete with the boys. One of the areas I try to show my girls that they can do it and be great at it is hunting. When I take my 5 year old out in the field with me I get looks of “really” and words I dare no repeat. I hear from many fathers of daughters and female hunters alike that they to hear these negative comments.
But within the hunting industry itself this idea of female hunters is actually exploding. Female hunters are showing up on more shows, magazines and social media feeds than ever before. Some of these females are representing the industry and females in a negative light. Giving the haters and nay Sayers more ammo against us as an industry and girls who hunt.
I have found three ladies whom I feel represent the females of the industry in a positive light. Three females that I show to my daughters as role models. These ladies don’t just live respect and dignity on the field but off it as well.
In this episode of Tasting Wild, Joel the home cookin hunter and myself will be talking to these three ladies. Having these three powerhouses answer real questions from real girls in the hunting world. I won’t get into much about them because you’ll hear their stories on the podcast.
