About


The Extreme Huntress™ Competition is about preserving our outdoor heritage. Our goal is to create positive role models for women who want to participate in hunting.

With a 50% divorce rate among parents and kids becoming invested in other sports at a younger and younger age, kids may not have the role models or opportunity to start hunting when they reach the legal age to hunt (12 or 14 depending on the state). If mom goes hunting, so will her children, thus preserving our outdoor heritage for future generations.

Now in its 8th year, the competition is wildly popular among contestants and fans. The Extreme Huntress Competition continues to set the bar for serious outdoors women, while at the same time providing positive role models for women who are new to hunting, shooting and other traditional outdoor sports. In addition, by preserving our outdoor heritage for future generations, we ultimately create more conservation stewards for wildlife and their habitat.

Beginning in July the first episode of Extreme Huntress™ will air online via GetZone.com (video embedded on this website and the app). Afterwards you can vote on which Extreme Huntress you think should win. These short, 6-9 minute episodes will post each week for a total of 26 weeks.

The winner of the 2017 Extreme Huntress Competition will be announced in January at the Dallas Safari Club annual, black-tie awards dinner.

What is the Extreme Huntress™ Competition

The Extreme Huntress™ Competition is about preserving our outdoor heritage. Our goal is to create positive role models for women who want to participate in hunting and the outdoor lifestyle. Ultimately, we hope to create a new generation of conservation stewards, providing sound management for wildlife and their habitat.

With a 50% divorce rate among parents and kids becoming invested in other sports at a younger and younger age, kids may not have the role models or opportunity to start hunting when they reach the legal age to hunt (12 or 14 depending on  the state). If mom goes hunting, so will her children, thus preserving our outdoor heritage for future generations.

Now in its 9th year, the competition is wildly popular among contestants and fans. The Extreme Huntress™ Competition continues to set the bar for serious outdoors women, while at the same time providing positive role models for women who are new to hunting, shooting and other traditional outdoor sports.

How does the Extreme Huntress™ Competition work?

The Extreme Huntress Competition takes nearly nine months for the contestants to complete.  Now you get the opportunity to see these women in action– and you get the opportunity to vote.

Beginning in September 1,  video episodes of Extreme Huntress™ will post online. Afterwards you can vote on which Extreme Huntress you think should win starting November 15.  Voting will end January 4, 2018.

The winner of the 2018 Extreme Huntress Competition will be announced in January at the Dallas Safari Club’s annual, black-tie awards dinner.

 
 
 
 
 
 


 
 


Women from all over the world are invited to post a short video (via YouTube or Vimeo) describing why they are the most hardcore Extreme Huntress.
A panel of  four celebrity judges score the entries to determine the top semi-finalists based on a weighted set of criteria. The judges are interested in why the women hunt, rather than how many or what size animals they’ve taken.
Once the judges determine the top semi-finalists, the essays are posted on ExtremeHuntress.com and the public is invited to vote for their favorite Extreme Huntress. Online voting is not meant to be a popularity contest, but rather an opportunity to bring more attention and public awareness to women and hunting.
The top six finalists travel to the YO Headquarters Ranch in Mountain Home, Texas for a head-to-head competition that tests the women in their physical fitness, shooting, tracking, and hunting skills.  The entire event is caught on film to produce 26 exciting episodes.
The post on ExtremeHuntress.com and GetZone.com. Y0u, the viewer, get to choose which of the six finalists was your favorite Extreme Huntress on vote online.
The winner of the competition is determined by a combination of their score in the outdoors skills competition (30%), a separate score from the judges in the hunting competition (50%), and their total of online votes received after the episodes air online (20%). This year, the 2018 Extreme Huntress winner will be announced at the Dallas Safari Club convention during a gala black-tie awards dinner. Respected artist Mark James has sculpted an exclusive Extreme Huntress™ Award.
