I live in the Ozark Mountains of southern Missouri, just minutes away from Bull Shoals Lake and Norfork Lake. I've had an interest in hunting since I was a young girl but it wasn't until I met my husband at age 19 that I was able to go on my first hunt. I immediately fell in love with hunting and began hunting on my own the following year. I am on my 8th year of hunting and all of my hunts are self guided. I am an avid deer and turkey hunter but I enjoy it all from bow fishing to pheasant hunting, even crow hunting!
During the months leading up to hunting season I can be found on our tractor plowing and disking our fields, planting food plots, scouting for deer sign, hanging tree stands and checking trail cams. By being a part of this preparation process I have a deeper appreciation for hunting and more respect for the animals that I harvest.
I enjoy taking my friends hunting with me to try and spark their interest for hunting also. I have a hunting blog and Facebook page called Huntress View where I share my hunting stories and give hunting tips and advice. I feel that more women will become involved in hunting and the outdoors if they are able to learn about it from other women.
