Encouraging women, to help them feel comfortable in the great outdoors
Yep, it's what she does!
About Dawn Freeland:
She started out doing a radio talk show called Shooting It Straight on Saturdays. The show talked about guns, pistols, cpl's, hunting and shooting. *They have since changed their format. Dawn has done numerous radio interviews, guest hosts and several appearances on local TV shows for news programs and special hunting events. But writing blogs about her outdoors experiences are still on the top of her list.
"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." ~Dawn Freeland
