This hunt is not affiliated with any group, magazine, or sponsor and is a HUNT, not an EVENT with silent auction, games and raffles—no frou-frou here—just an actual hunt. I am not a booking agent, guide or outfitter; I am simply organizing this hunt for other women who would like to participate in a bow hunt with other women with like interests.
