Meet New Prois staffer, Kate Jarvis!

KateJarvisKate Jarvis has been an outdoor enthusiast her whole life. Loving hiking, fishing, camping, being out on the water, target shooting, and more, it wasn’t a far stretch to become an avid hunter. She has enjoyed bowhunting adventures all across the U.S. and to South Africa. Kate has 6 amazing kids who have all taken on the same love of archery. She plans to become a certified archery and hunter safety instructor as she’s passionate about education and being a resource for other women. She participates in many competitive 3D archery shoots each year as well.

Outside of her love of the outdoors, hunting, and archery, Kate recently returned to college full time to pursue a bachelor’s of science in nursing, with the long term goal of becoming a nurse practitioner. She is also proudly the loudest football mom at all of her sons’ games and, after years of trial and error, has perfected cheer hair and makeup for her daughters (a BIG challenge in uncharted territory). She enjoys coaching youth sports in her community, cooking, writing, linguistics, riding her motorcycle, yoga, photography, martial arts, traveling, and pursuing new interests.

 

Update from Prois Pro-Staffers Tracy and Lanny Barnes!

TracyLanny1Tracy and I just finished a 3 week 3-gun road trip covering competing in Nevada, Utah, and Alabama. The first one was USPSA Multi-gun Nationals, the second was the Lady 3-gun, and the last was the 3-gun Nation Southern Regional Qualifier. We have one more local 3-gun this weekend then we will have a few weeks of training before we head to the Sportsman Team Challenge in Raton, NM on the last weekend in May. It was my first time competing in the USPSA Multi Gun Nationals in Vegas. I had a heard a lot of horror stories about the sand causing firearms failures. All of my guns ran smoothly and I felt like I had really improved from the competitions this winter and 11 out of the 12 stages when really well. I ended up 4th amongst the women but was encouraged that with a few less penalties and a little more experience ITracyLanny2 will be able to move up next year. Tracy unfortunately didn’t get to compete in this one because her little one caught a cold, but competed in the next two. The second competition was the Lady 3-gun in St. George, UT. This was our second time competing in the Lady 3-gun and we were hoping to improve on our results last year. The stages were a lot more complicated that they were last year, which was a challenge that we were happy to see. A majority of stages had multiple options to shoot targets with different firearms. It was a great learning experience for us to test our skills at stage planning and initiation. We both learned that we have some more work to do in stage planning, but both were happy with how we executed our plans even if we haven’t gotten the experience yet that we need to know how to plan out stages better. I (Lanny) finished 8th and Tracy was 14th. It was a improvement from last years 12th and 16th places. Our final competition was in Hoover, Alabama. It was a 3-gun Nation Southern Regional Qualifier. It was our first time to Alabama and we encountered some pretty hot conditions, but luckily most of the stages were in the shade. We both had a really TracyLanny4good match and things were finally starting to come together to make for some good solid stages. I was able to have 5 of the 8 stages clean without penalties and ended up 3rd woman overall and Tracy had a few more penalties and ended up 9th woman. We have definitely made some huge improvement from last year and are gTracyLanny14etting close to being done with our first year competing in 3-gun. Our first 3 gun competition was last year at the end of May so we are looking to put that rookie year behind us and start competing with the best. We have a lot of training planed in the next couple of weeks as well as the Sportsman Team Challenge at the end of the month. Also we made it into the magazine Modern Sporting Rifle again. There is an article about an elk hunt Tracy did in there. Check it out (picture attached). Let us know if there is anything we can do for you and thank you so much for your support! Have a great weekend.

MORALS VS. MORELS BY SHANNON RASMUSSEN

Dear Prois Posse,
As a public service, I feel it is my duty to clear up some confusion about the differences between Morals and Morels. You’re welcome!! ;)
MORALS                                                   MORELS
Tell the truth                                              Stretch the truth as needed to protect coveted morel patches.
Do not vandalize property                         Cutting holes in opposing morel hunter’s bags permitted.
Have courage                                            Just ignore the bear tracks and keep looking.
Keep your promises                                  ” I promise I won’t pick them all before you get here.” wink wink
Be trustworthy                                            I think I saw some morels over there, you should go look.
Do not judge                                              Is that the only/biggest/smallest/etc. morel you found?
Respect others                                          Tripping, pushing, swearing allowed.
Be forgiving                                                Why didn’t you find any morels? What the hell is wrong with you?
Keep your self control                                OH PLEASE!!! Once a morel is spotted, it’s a free for all.
Have patience                                            If we don’t find a morel in the first 2 mins, we’re going to a new spot.
Have respect for yourself                           Torn clothing, dirt, scratches, it’s all a part of it.
Have humility                                              BRAG! You’ve earned it!
Be generous                                               These are my morels, go find your own!
I hope this helps the next time you find yourself questioning what to do. #ProisWasThere
