Huntress of the Month!

A few weeks ago, I was approached about an interview with Elizabeth from Deer Passion (@deerpassion) that would be done on real hunting women. Not the ones who have sponsors and can spend their whole lives making TV shows or promoting themselves, but the women who have full time jobs, families and still find time to get outside and hunt.

Here is the link to the interview! She did a great job and writes a great blog so you should check her out anyways!

Happy Hunting!

Lots of deer, no turkeys

Every time I see or talk to my Dad, we have a check in of local wildlife; have you seen any deer? where where they? how many tracks etc. Dad and I had a roadside chat yesterday as we met on the road and were headed in different directions.

The update: lots of tracks near the Sky Condo and he had done some pruning for this fall - we need one more clear shooting lane off at our 1 o'clock to be able to get some good shots along a well traveled deer trail. I asked about any turkeys he had seen because the season starts in just a few weeks. Nada. None in the woods and none behind the house. These buggers are going to make me work to get one of them in May! I say bring it on!!

Its a whole new hunting season for a new critter to hunt! If I get into turkey hunting, the year will become the following:
turkey season
ticks so avoid the outdoors season
deer season
deer tracking season

Sounds good to me!

Fitting into the family

Somewhere, there is a photo of Dad and I in our matching red and black plaid wool jackets at Christmas. They look like this but red:


Although last year, Dad did not wear his wool pants as much, we usually look like twins when we head off into the woods. It's our hunting uniform. So, when I was shopping for baby clothes hangers and I saw a red and black plaid fleece pull over, I had to buy it. Had to. Sure, it is for a 24 month old and I have about 26 months until the baby will fit into it, but it was a small hunting uniform that I needed to buy.

To all of you parents out there... what else should I buy? =)

Wanted: An Organization that supports me!

As a 30 year-old woman, it is hard to figure out where I belong in the overall hunting world so that I am taken seriously. Women, and my demographic specifically, are the fastest growing demographic in the hunting world right now. I have been hunting for 10 years and write a few different outdoor blogs about my experiences and in order to keep up with what is happening across the state, I belong to organizations that promote hunting and the outdoors.

One of those organizations is the Sportman's Alliance of Maine (SAM). I have been a member for about a year now. Their mission states that:

The Sportsman’s Alliance of Maine is Maine’s largest sportsman’s organization with 10,000 members and a headquarters in Augusta, ME. SAM is considered the leader of Maine’s 300,000 sportsmen. SAM’s staff works at the legislature, state agencies and other forums on critical issues. SAM was organized in 1975 and is a 501 (c ) 3 non-profit membership organization to promote conservation of Maine’…
