About Dawn Freeland
I started out doing a radio talk show called Shooting It Straight on Saturdays tantalk1340.com. The show talked about guns, pistols, cpl's, hunting and shooting. They have since changed their format.
I appear on local TV Shows for special hunting events and I also do radio interviews. But writing about my outdoors experiences is where my heart is at.
Being a female hunter in a male dominated sport has been trying at times. The prejudices and attitudes have been the hardest to overcome. Some other difficulties have been working with gun store owners, property owners, and the "Good Old Boys Club". I believe I have used my love of the sport to sustain my drive in becoming a successful hunter.
I also use my love and knowledge of the sport to help other female hunters have an enjoyable and successful hunting experience, whether they are just starting out or are an experienced female hunter.
