My kind of company

I have written a few times (here and here) about the lack of women's clothing in the outdoor industry that fit and do their job.  I have pieced together my hunting wardrobe with a little bit of this and a little bit of that.  Then, a friend of mine on Facebook posted something about EvoOutdoors and I checked them out.  It was like finding a pot of gold. Not just two pairs of pants that would not fit right or a jacket too big, but actual women's hunting clothes with options!  I wanted in.

This is my Classic Mainer look: WOOL!
This is how the website describes this awesome group that I am now a part of:

EvoOutdoors ProStaff Team members have a passion for the outdoors. They are a group that prides themselves in ethical hunting techniques and passing that tradition to the younger generation. You can find them sharing their talent mentoring others, volunteering in their community, and of course out in the field in the pursuit of game!

YES, PLEASE!

Have you ever started talking to people and found that you just click? The same interests, the same passion and the same enthusiasm for the outdoors, hunting and fishing.  It's fun and exciting to have conversations with people on the West Coast about their elk hunt, the types of cameras that they use and how to get better gear for our adventures.  THAT is what EvoOutdoors is!  This incredible, supportive group that have the wackiest, most entertaining conversations (online) with one another.  It is like stepping into a large family that is laughing and joking and genuinely like each other.  AND they have gear and clothes.  I don't think that it gets any better than this.


EvoOutdoors not only offers deals on some of the best clothing in the industry BUT they will actually pick out the clothes you need for your hunt.  Think Maine girl wanting to elk hunt (someday) and having no idea what I would need (probably not wool) - Evo would help me get the right clothing with the right camo pattern and take the guess work out of it.  Hello, spoiled hunter!

I'm thrilled to be a part of EvoOutdoors and help get more people the gear that they need for the best outdoor experience.  There is nothing worst than being cold or wet and unable to stay in the woods.  Evo has GREAT companies that are partnering with us, so there is something for everyone.  Kids, men and women(!!) can finally get clothes that fit, hold up and it takes the worry about of that part of preparing for your hunt.

 Evo shares great deals and discounts on their Facebook page, so give them a 'Like' and keep up with the deals, pre-order opportunities and the fun stuff we are doing in the outdoors.

Eagles on the trail

Reason number 3,657,935 why my Dad is the best: As we were snowmobiling, we approached a bog and three eagles with about 20 crows took off.  It could only mean one thing in my book - something was dead.  We circled back and walked around in the snow but the birds had left and we couldnt find anything that would resemble a meal.  A part of me thinks that we were in the wrong piece of land and should have been on the other side of the bog but in our snowmobile gear, we were not going to cover a lot of ground.  I was disappointed that we couldn't find what the birds were eating but I was able to get some good pictures of one of the mature eagles and the immature eagle that were flying around.






Where are the women?

This week, my interview with Steve at The Maine Outdoorsman went live. Steve said yesterday 200 people hit his site viewing over 500 pages. That is a lot of people reading about little ole me and hunting. Why? When I think of women who are in the general public's eye and hunt, I can think of 2 - Country singer Miranda Lambert and Sarah Palin. Why only two? Why is the female hunter such a fascinating thing? (I should probably note that I do not have cable so any and all female hunters on the hunting stations are lost to me. I'll keep it to the general public because that's what I am familiar with.) People/media were fascinated by the fact that they could get footage of Palin and her gun, shooting (and gutting) animals but I feel like the nostalgia would be lost if they had the same footage of McCain. Lambert and her hubby Blake Shelton tweet photos of their kills, and comment on what/where they are hunting. I only know this because I follow both. That's it.…

Wanted: Mr. Sportsman

A friend of mine sent me this link and asked what I thought about it.  I had seen it before and was honest when I told him how degrading I felt it was.  Not only was the title of the "Miss Maine Sportsman" application in pink* but the questions were incredibly insulting to those of us that are fighting to be taken seriously among our male counterparts.

Questions like, "Do you clean your own kills/catches?" would never be asked if it were Mr. Maine Sportsman.  It would be assumed that yes, of course men clean what they kill.  Why is that assumption not made of us outdoor women?  Another question, "Do cook [sic] what you catch/kill? If so, what’s your favorite recipe?" would never be asked of men.  

My friend asked me what sort of questions I would ask if it were a Mr. Maine Sportsman pageant.  I came up with a bunch of snarky questions (Do you bait your own hook?) but then I thought about the questions that could have the most impact on the men that would…
