Making Women Feel at Home on the Hunt

In General by RMEF2 Comments

There is no segment of the hunting world that is growing faster than women. More and more females of all ages are venturing into the woods and mountains in search of filling the freezer than ever before. Still, what about women who don’t hunt. Have they been asked? Are they interested?

Long-time Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation supporter Tiffany Lakosky, an avid hunter, tackled that topic head on.

“Do whatever you need to do to get them where they want to actually enjoy it. If she wants to go out there and bring War and Peace to read while she keeps herself occupied, let her bring it. Normally once deer start showing up they’ll want to sit out there and appreciate it, and they’ll put the book down or the games or whatever else,” Lakosky told the Outdoor Channel.

“I used to play Gameboy to keep myself still. I think the hardest thing for me even now is to sit up there and just stay still and enjoy the outdoors because I’m just naturally kind of ADD. I’m always moving, always doing stuff. I always say just do whatever you need to do. Let them do whatever they need to do just to get them out there. Then all of a sudden they’ll go ‘Oh, my gosh! I can see what I’ve been missing over the years.’”
