Introduced: My husband introduced me to bow hunting at the age of 33.
Continent(s) Hunted: North America, and Africa
Favorite Trophy: I have two. My Eland and Damara Dik-Dik.
Memorable Hunt: Our trip to Namibia was probably the most memorable because of the entire adventure. Sitting in the hide for 7 hunts and putting a stalk on a wild animal is exhilarating to say the least! In Africa, you never know what is going to show itself in front of you at 25 yards so you are always on pins and needles with anticipation.
Favorite Species to Hunt: I'd have to say whitetail deer. They are so wile and wise and to get a 30 yard or closer shot on a mature buck or doe is always exciting!
Want to Hunt: My husband and I have been to Africa twice and neither one of us has taken a zebra with our bows. So that is the one animal that is top on our hit list.
Advice: Be patient and practice. Get with someone who really knows the sport and listen closely.
