Hi! My name is Kari, and I am an avid whitetail deer hunter. I have an intense passion for the outdoors, especially bow hunting! I don’t claim to be an expert, by any means. I am just a lady that loves to hunt and learn. I also love sharing my knowledge and experiences with others. My hope is that through this page, I can expand my knowledge even more through all of you. I am hoping you will share what you know, so that together we can all continue to grow as hunters. I love hearing other people’s tips, tactics, tricks, and yes, even opinions! So, if you have something to share, please do it!
So, how did I get into hunting? Well, I didn’t grow up in a hunting family. And,once upon a time, I was one of those women who thought hunting was barbaric; it was something I never imagined myself doing. Yet, here I am sharing my passion with all of you. Anyway, my love of hunting began with my love for my children. When my boys were growing up, they wanted someone to take them out hunting, so even though I had no clue what I was doing, or no desire to be out there, I took them. I started educating myself so that I could educate them. I took a hunter’s safety course with them and I learned to shoot. And, through taking them out, I fell in love with hunting. It no longer seemed barbaric; I actually discovered that I felt a closer connection to the animals than I had ever felt before. I realize to many, this may sound strange; it is something only a true hunter can understand.
And, while I did not grow up in a hunting family, I did grow up in a fishing family. This is another passion of mine. My greatest childhood memories revolve around a waterhole and a fishing pole! So, the love of the outdoors has always been there; it is just much bigger now than it used to be. Anyway, for the most part, I am a self-educated hunter. I read a lot, watched hunting shows, and asked lots of questions. However, I can also easily admit that my husband has taught me a lot and made me a better hunter. Sharing knowledge is the best way to improve our skills. So, I hope you will follow along with me as I share my tips, advice, opinions (popular or not), and other fun tidbits with you. And, even more importantly, I hope you will share back with me!
