I was born and raised in a small town in southeast Idaho. My dad was blessed with two daughters and no sons, and as a result, I grew up doing everything that a dad would take his sons to do. I lived in the mountains before I could even walk, with one of my first words being “dirt.” I begged my dad for a bow and arrow when I was a toddler, and he finally gave me my very own at the age of 4. I started shooting local 3d tournaments on the weekends, and my skill level steadily increased. I soon began competing in state, national, and even world events, but being on the mountain was my true love. My passion for the outdoors was immediate, but it grew even more so when I was able to harvest my first deer at the age of 12. I was hooked. Since then, I have been hunting in several different states, and even Mexico. I am constantly thinking about my next hunting trip, with my ultimate dream job being to hunt for a living. I currently work two jobs so that I can afford my hunting habit. I am the most hardcore huntress that I know, with my sister being a close second. I feel that I would be a good candidate for this competition because I like a good challenge. If at the end of the day I haven’t challenged myself, then I haven’t done enough.
