I have a reputation to uphold around here “ I don t go in the woods, I don t pack heat and I don t know the proper way to hold a bow. This one time at Cabelas, out of boredom, I picked up a bow like I was some hot outdoor chick scanning the woods to smack a critter when my husband turned around and said, Jody you re holding that backwards.
And he went about his business while I stood there for an hour trying to figure the darn thing out. In case you re wondering, we had the same conversation last weekend.
If you ve been reading my blog for any amount of time you know I have a fear of a squirrel attack. Just as I step foot in the woods I know one of those flying trapeze of a squirrel with find it s way in my hair. Because I have big comfy nest hair for squirrels.
That s all I m doing.
Just gathering information.
- It s about 2 hours from our house and about 30 minutes from our river house. (Oh deer)
- The cost is only $175 from Friday to Sunday. (I can afford that.)
- It s in the woods. (Blair Witch.)
- You sleep in barracks or a tent. (Friday the 13th made me sleep on the floor til I was 18.)
I ll write more about the details next week. It sounds like a very affordable exciting weekend for any female looking to learn more about the outdoors.
But what would it do to me? My blog would never be the same. Next thing you know I ll be wanting to wear camouflage on my date night like I yell at my husband for. Or competing at some clay sporting shot em up. Or having a camera crew follow me around in the woods. That would make great footage ¦ squirrel attack.
My non wearin camouflage painted nails hunter s wife reputation will be ruined.
What do you all think?
Have a great day ¦ maybe I could go there as a reporter or the entertainment. And stay at the local spa hotel.

Norcal Cazadora s first deer:
Congratulations to Holly for harvesting her first deer. It was a spot and stalk but not tackle like my deer. But I tell you, Holly always amazes me. Not only did she harvest her first deer but she did it all alone.

Just because a woman wants to learn outdoors skills doesn t mean she wants to stop being a woman. That s why Team Huntress created the Outdoor Adventure Clinic, a revolutionary three-day event that caters to women who want to learn or expand on their outdoor skills while enjoying beautiful accommodations, spa treatments and the camaraderie of like-minded women.
Following the resounding success of its inaugural Outdoor Adventure Clinic for women in June, Team Huntress has announced plans for its second clinic to be held at the beautiful Buffalo County Outfitters in Mondovi, Wisconsin, August 21 “ 23, 2009.
The Outdoor Adventure Clinic offers training in archery, firearms, wildlife photography, gear, and survival skills from the expert Team Huntress staff of prominent women hunters, while a team of clinicians offers the kind of pampering women love: massages, facials, foot rubs, nature walks, and wine tasting.
Because the majority of the teaching staff is female, the environment is particularly welcoming for women who are interested in learning outdoor skills but may be intimidated by the overwhelmingly male nature of the shooting sports. Team Huntress understands that women want and need a supportive and pleasant environment for learning “ no ribbing about missed shots, no competitive bravado, and no substandard accommodations that make a woman cringe.
Instructors for the Team Huntress Outdoor Adventure Clinic include: Terri Lee Pocernich, Camp Wild Girls; Kirstie Pike, Prois Hunting Apparel; Barbara Baird, Women s Outdoor News; Stacey and Hawk Huston, A Focus in the Wild; Holly Hesyer, NorCalCazadora; and Jane Keller, Team Huntress.
The Team Huntress formula “ instruction, female staff and pampering “ proved highly effective at the inaugural Outdoor Adventure Clinic at the Pheasant Phun/OJ Bar Ranch in Hitchcock, S.D. in June. Women who d never fired a gun felt secure taking those first steps and found they really enjoyed what they were learning. By the end of the weekend, participants were abuzz about the shooting sports and the new friendships they d formed.
The Team Huntress Outdoor Adventure Clinic is the ideal gift, whether it s a woman treating herself to something she deserves or an outdoorsman who s been looking for a way to bring his wife, daughter, or girlfriend into the lifestyle he loves. The clinic is open to women ages 18 and over who want to learn or expand their outdoor skills.
Buffalo City Outfitters is located at Mondovi, Wisconsin, 25 miles south of Eau Claire and 1 ½ hours from the Minneapolis-St. Paul airport. Airport pickup and return is provided for the clinic.
Cost of the weekend clinic is $995, which includes instruction, meals, spa treatment, gifts (clothing, skin care, and food) from sponsors, lodging, and airport transportation. To learn more or book your spot at the clinic, contact Team Huntress founder Jane Keller, firstname.lastname@example.org, 605-450-0931.
