Making Hunting

Her-Story

Hunters Brittany Boddington (pictured) and Shannon Lansdowne want to help fellow women interested in the sport feel like they too can follow their passion, which was why they began the She Hunts Skills Camp. (SHE HUNTS SKILLS CAMP)

GROWING SKILLS CAMP BRINGS WOMEN WHO ASPIRE TO HUNT INDEPENDENTLY TOGETHER WITH EXPERTS FOR HANDS-ON LEARNING. By Brittany Boddington

W

hat started off as an idea has turned into something magical. My friend and fellow hunter Shannon Lansdowne and I knew that women needed more formal instruction in the field of hunting and a safe space to learn, which is why we developed the She Hunts Skills Camp. What we didn’t count on

was the impact the camp would have on those who attended. It is my passion to help get people into the outdoors and into hunting and women are the fastest growing demographic in the hunting industry.

A GREAT RESOURCE FOR WOMEN There are several programs for women but none quite like ours. We combine learning from indus-

try professionals with quality products like Leupold Optics, Krieghoff Shotguns, MG Arms rifles and many more, with a fun, low-pressure atmosphere. The ladies who attend get a ton of goodies to take home with them to help get them on their feet for their next hunt. Shannon and I learned that our niche is with women who want to learn to be independent hunters.
