New to Pro-Staff, Donna Boddington!!
Prois Hunting Apparel
Donna Boddington is a tough hunter. Period. Whether she’s leading the charge up a goat mountain with debilitating blisters or mustering for another scorching hot day of stalking Cape buffalo she is ready with fortitude and an indeed unbeatable spirit.
Born in Braintree Mass, she was raised in a large family before moving to California. Her hunting geography ranges from whitetail on her farm in Kansas to big game in South America, Asia, Europe, Africa, and Australia. On the Dark Continent she’s taken game as small as the dik-dik and as large as the elephant and giraffe. She has harvested both ibex and chamois in Asia and Europe. On her home continent she’s enjoyed hunting all of our big game species and is still on the quest for a mountain goat.
She often enjoys the fun and camaraderie of hi ring alongside her husband, Craig Boddington. She shares Craig’s passion for mountain hunts. Her current short term goal as a hunter is to become proficient as a bow hunter and her long term goal is to succeed at two goats that eluded her in the past; B.C. mountain goat and Pyrenean chamois.
New to Field Staff, Becky Lou Lacock
Becky Lou Lacock is an avid outdoors girl from the word GO! She actively hunts year round including but not limited to deer, turkey, hogs, ducks, birds, and various predators. Sport shooting is often on her agenda including Sporting Clays, and she actively competes in Cowboy Action Shooting noted with her registered S.A.S.S alias “Sassy Bandit”. Having spent most of her life indoors, she is keenly aware that there are many women that do not consider most outdoor sports simply because they do not have 3 very important things; 1.) Information, 2.) Encouragement and 3.) Inspiration. This has helped define her mission in life, which is to provide these 3 things to women using all platforms made available to her. She is an avid volunteer for events and workshops teaching and inspiring women into outdoor activities. With her first TV appearance in early 2010, she has since appeared several times, as guest host, featured hunter, and is currently Co-Host of Double Lung Outdoors TV.

She has begun her pursuit towards the North American Grand Slam solely with stick and string. She has been on hunts for Yukon Moose in the vast bush of Alaska; hunted the mountains of Idaho for black bear, and been blessed to witness the migration of Caribou at arms’ length. She takes pride in filming all of her hunts with her husband. Videography to her is just rewarding as harvesting the animal. Candace believes, “We are the vitality to make this dream a reality; we are unconquerable and anything is possible! Sometimes you just need a helping hand and an open heart”. Candace hopes to use the avenues she has been given through the great outdoors to inspire other women and to help them believe they too are unconquerable! Candace is elated to be given the opportunity to take Prois on all of her adventures
New to Field Staff, Joni Kiser
Joni Kiser is co-owner of Full Curl Archery, the largest archery store in Alaska. She was raised in a truly “Alaskan” lifestyle with a father who was a Master Guide and Outfitter that ran a hunting lodge on the Alaska Peninsula for over 40 years. Whether she is teaching private archery lessons, running her youth Home School Archery Classes for the National Archery in the Schools Program (NASP), or being an instructor for Alaska Department of Fish and Games Women’s Archery Program – her life truly revolves around archery and hunting and it is something that is deeply embedded in the core of who she is. In 2012 she organized an “all ladies” bear hunt where she took a few new lady hunters out to get their first black bears (successfully!) and says she feels so proud when a woman she has taught how to shoot, goes out and successfully takes an animal with her bow! In 2012 Joni also successfully took a Pope and Young Record Book Brown Bear with her bow and is looking forward to more hunting adventures with her hunting buddies in 2013!!
