Ladies, we are the fastest growing segment in the hunting industry and we’ve caught everybody’s attention! There are several hunting companies catering to our needs; they’re creating rifles that suit us better, clothes that fit our bodies, and you can even find pink camouflage to encourage little girls to get out there and hunt!
We seemingly-helpless-little-creatures of women are so unbelievably powerful; intertwining femininity and hard-core determination makes us exceptional advocates for protecting the right to hunt. The anti-hunters hate us; we are supposed to be mothers and nurturers and teachers –not ‘killers of bambi’! In their eyes, a hunter is supposed to look like ‘Elmer Fudd’ not ‘Donna Reed’ and they know that we capture the attention of those who sit on the fence about hunting.
Tune in to NBC Sports and you’ll see women on TV showcasing their abilities to hunt. Open any hunting magazine and you’ll read of a lady who has worked hard to take a great trophy. I know a woman who traveled alone to Tajikistan (close to where the Taliban is imbedded) two weeks after 9-11 in pursuit of Marco Polo! I know another exceptional huntress that wore a burka to respect cultural tradition in order to hunt sheep in Iran –can you imagine climbing mountains in a dress from head to toe? Ladies, we’re shattering records and going places few men would go.
There’s a competition celebrating the most hard-core extreme huntress -Tahoe Film’s Extreme Huntress Contest and they’re accepting essays right now. You can email your essay (up to 500 words) about, “Why you are the most hardcore, Extreme Huntress,”to firstname.lastname@example.org and send up to 2 low resolution jpeg format photos.

Don’t be intimidated! You’re a huntress and worthy of recognition; submit your essay!
