I'm for Michigan.....born, raised and still currently here! My passion for the outdoors stemmed from my childhood as a kid hunting and fishing with my father every chance I got. I was taught at a young age the importance of conservation and that living off what the land has to offer is beneficial in many ways. From foraging, tracking animals, fishing, harvesting and processing our kills, preparing meals, etc. the possibilities have always been endless! Now as an adult woman, I continue to enjoy these experiences still with my father as well as with friends. I strive to educate others, learn from others and overall just get more people outside!
Born and raised in the thumb of Michigan. That’s where my love of the outdoors started. As a young girl my mom would take my siblings and I tent camping and fishing, she wouldn’t touch the worms so I would bait all the hooks. She enrolled me in shooting sports for 4-H when I was 10! My love for archery grew into a passion for bow hunting. I harvested my first whitetail at the age of 15, a small yearling 5pt with my bow, hook, line, sinker! I started trapping at the age of 12. First started out as nuisance trapping on our family beef farm, then turned into running fur lines before and after school. I perused trapping hard and continue to do so! This year I was part of the first annual SheSide addition to the NTA at the national convention in Lima, Ohio. I was able to provide a demo on muskrat trapping to fellow trappers. I’m going into my 20th season this year as a fur harvester. I relocated to Cincinnati in 2018, where I now own and run a Wild Removal Company. I get to trap 365 days a year. It is through my passion of trapping I now am able to educate the public on common fur bearers who become nuisance in urban areas! Trapping is my favorite outdoor activity. I was lucky enough to trap my first otter in 2021. Another thing about me is I love to travel, and by traveling I mean bow hunt all over our precious nation. From Long Island, New York hunting Atlantic Brandt to Boise, Idaho chasing mule deer, I have been blessed with out a doubt on harvesting some of my bucket list animals. My favorite animal to chase would be spring bear in Idaho! On my first bear hunt ever, l on the first day we saw 16 bears. My future plans for myself in the outdoors is to bring more women into these sports. To show that it isn’t impossible to try new things like archery or setting a leg hold for a coyote. It just takes a spark of interest. I hope to expand my reach to woman all over and help instill a passion for the outdoors in their hearts to pass down their own knowledge and teachings to future generations of outdoors people!
I call the upper peninsula of Michigan home! Growing up here has truly given me an outdoor playground with year-round opportunities for fishing and hunting. What I love most about the outdoors is how it really allows us to unplug from everything, build an appreciation for the natural world and the many species that inhabit it, but also have a one of a kind experience every time you get out. As someone who also is a big proponent on knowing where there food comes from, nothing brings me greater satisfaction than harvesting an animal that lived the most natural life that it could. I enjoy hunting for deer, turkey, and as of this year - waterfowl! It's been an incredible new experience for me, and I only hope to continue to inspire others to take a leap and try new things like I have!
I live in Pittsburg KS. I am an avid deer, turkey, dove, goose, and duck hunter. During the summer you’ll catch me preparing for deer season, shooting my bow, and fishing for blue gill, smallmouth bass, and largemouth bass. One of my bucket lists hunts is an Axis deer hunt.
