I am originally from southern Illinois and grew up fishing. I always wanted to hunt but never had the opportunity to. I now reside in central Nebraska and have found my passion for hunting.
I was introduced to hunting by my fiance. I spent our whole first year in Nebraska following him around with a camera taking photos of him, nature and wildlife. Last year, I knew it was my time to get serious and start hunting - with more than just a camera! I went turkey, duck, goose and rabbit hunting. My first turkey hunt was hard. Went through Nebraska hill country and even crossed a creek. But, it was unbelievable. I was able to shoot a jake and my boyfriend (now fiance) killed a tom. I know how rare it is to double, but it got me hooked! I have now purchased a deer tag and also plan to hunt prairie chickens this year.
Most of our protein comes from hunting and I love to try new recipes. I wanted to join Huntress View to bring confidence in cooking wild game and to join other women in their journey in hunting and fishing.
