Woman Hunters

I was just reading some good conversation about women hunters. I for one love being in the outdoors and if I connect with an animal to put in the freezer all the better. How about a shout out to fellow women hunters out there. So far this coming season I will have a private cow licence starting in Aug. going through Sept. Have a Bear permit for the month of Sept., drew a doe antelope private land permit. Then time permitting I will get a bull licence for 2nd season. I love being in the mountains and hope I can continue for may years to come. Hoping that moose permit comes through one of these years while I can still enjoy it.
And yes I am one of those females that can tear an engine down and put it back together. I had the best dad in the world who taught me that I didn't have to depend on anyone if I didn't want to. My husband and I will be celebrating 33 years of marriage this fall. He has been my best friend and encourager our whole time together. He gets more thrill out of me getting meat for the freezer that he himself getting it.

A couple of curious questions

A couple of curious questions since you aren't getting a response from other women.

Do you hunt alone?

What method of hunting are you planning for the bear hunt?

Still Hunter. I hunt in the

Still Hunter. I hunt in the forest alone but there is usually someone within a mile or so that can help once a critter is down. I have a 300 win mag and carry a 357 on my hip. Bear is rifle and spot/stock, walk the old logging roads, sit and wait in berry country...

My wife loves to hunt and

My wife loves to hunt and fish and gets out every chance we can. It is great to have her out with me and we really enjoy our time together. She drew a cow ML tag so she is excited to get out come September. Nice to see and hear of other ladies doing the same. Good luck and hope to see some photos and hear some stories come fall.

Thanks for sharing this, wonderwoman. Obivously, I'm new to the forum (new to the sport, in general), but I really appreciate seeing how there is a lot of support out there for us. I can't even imagine the experience of taking an animal, but being there throughout the whole process really brings out the true spirit of the hunt. Way to go--thanks for posting this! Thumbs up

Woman hunters

I like to hunt alone but there are always people at our cabin to aide in retrieving an animal once down. But, I can gut a big old bull with the best of them. I rifle hunt and like to pick a good vantage spot to sit and read and watch the hillside or trails. We have lots of logging roads so I wonder down them slowly.
