“My love for hunting began when I was about 6 years old. I was the first of three children. My dad wanted a boy to hunting with but got me instead. I hunted with him until his death and I was only 15 at that time. My grandfather hunted small game so that became my new hobby. I got married and my life was busy raising a family and my husband did not hunt. For quite a few years I didn’t even bother to think about hunting. My son came along and that is when I realized that I need a hobby to do with him. We soon started shooting together. Unfortunately, I divorced. However, there was then a lot of time for Zack and I to hunt,fish, and just hang out together.
I met Jim and he turned me on to hunting FIRST CLASS. He bought me my own gun and all the new equipment and clothes. I had never killed a deer until he took me on a hunting trip and really showed me the ropes. I got my first deer about 3 months later and I guess you could say I had Buck Fever after that. It’s nice when the 3 of us go hunting in different places and try to bring home the biggest animal… so far I hold that honor!
I got breast cancer and had to replace the rifle with a crossbow but which is what I used to take down the biggest buck for me yet! He scored 151 Boone and Crockett and won me the Diana Award for the largest buck taken by a woman with a bow in 2007. God knew it was my time to shine. The guys are still trying to out score me but that hasn”t happened yet. I love being out there and because of the breast cancer I appreciate each and every day that the Lord gives me to the fullest.”
