Katy’s First Deer

There is absolutely nothing like harvesting your first deer. The rush, the adrenaline, the tears. Now, that all still remains the same any time I have harvested any animal, but there is nothing like that of the first. It makes all the hard work, mistakes, ugly tears, and being overtired for days or weeks onContinue reading “Katy’s First Deer”

Wild Woman Spotlight – August 2022

Back in May I was gearing up to go out on a fishing trip out of Boston in search of Striped Bass. We had booked the trip well in advance through a women’s outdoors group, and there were 4 of us slotted to go. Last minute, someone was unable to go due to COVID andContinue reading “Wild Woman Spotlight – August 2022”

Wild Woman Spotlight – April 2022

It’s insane to believe that April has officially come to an end. The good news is, that means another Wild Woman spotlight!

Why?

There’s always some sort of level of surprise when I meet someone for the first time and they find out that I love to hunt and fish. Most recently, I met some new people through my dad and after chit chatting for a while one of them made a comment about how he had seenContinue reading “Why?”

Leave it in the Woods

I think that women are often criticized for making things too emotional. In these male-dominated sports tho, I think we try to hide or mask our emotions. I know I do. We are so afraid of not looking “tough enough” or “capable enough” but I think this hinders us more than it helps. We areContinue reading “Leave it in the Woods”

The Pressure

I stopped in the middle of the trail as the last bit of daylight hung in the air. The darkness seemed to roll in faster now that I had noticed its looming presence. I stopped in the middle of the trail and tried to hold back the tears. For over two weeks I had beenContinue reading “The Pressure”

Wild Woman Spotlight – December

Here’s to 2021. I started Wild Women in the beginning of the year, and although it has grown significantly I will be the first to admit it has been neglected a bit since the 2021 hunting season opened and I was fully wrapped up being in the field. My biggest goals for 2022 are toContinue reading “Wild Woman Spotlight – December”
