Dear Future President

Dear Future President,

I am a 31 year old married millenial woman and I hunt and I fish.  These are the facts. But I’m one of the lucky ones. I grew up with an over 30 acre backyard where I explored our outdoor world with family, friends and on my own. I sat in the duck blind with my dad alongside our family dog – me in training just as much as our beloved black lab Duff.  And now with my father gone, I work hard to pass on these experiences to my husband, nieces, nephews and friends as we learn how tricky trout fishing really can be.

I write today for the future. Not just for the millenial future but for our children’s future and what can be...

A Healthy Hunter

Guest Post


By Christi Stone

My greatest desire in this world begins and ends with a quality lifestyle not only for my family and myself, but I hope that in my journey through this crazy life, that I can inspire hope in others to do the same. I think that we all can agree and learn to understand that our days on this earth are numbered, therefore it is up to us to learn and sometimes fight for a meaningful life of value. I believe that value comes from your roots; It’s who you are, it’s what you believe in and it’s the purpose driving you to be the absolute best version of yourself.

My roots can be found in a small town in upstate New York, where as a family, countless hours were spent learning about the appreciation for the conservation of the land and its habitat...

The Beginning of Something Great: My Hunting Story

Guest Post



I’m currently a 27 year old female living in upstate New York. I’d like to once again declare that I live in upstate New York – the city is about 4 hours South of my area. I am surrounded by views of scenic mountains, rolling hills and colorful trees so picturesque that the sight would rob your lungs of air and heart of a beat. Too many people, including my younger self, believe New York to be swallowed by the city – not understanding the true beauty the state really has to offer. Now, if the politics were as pure, I’d certainly live in a paradise. But, it’s my home now, and you have to take the bad with the good.

Delaware is my first home, and also the “first state” (for those of you who thought you knew what Delaware was but wasn’t sure)...

Syren, reengineering shotguns for women



Camo is the New Black’s Co-Founder Whitney was beyond excited to learn about Syren shotguns for women at this year’s SHOT Show.  And when we saw this review from Pheasants Forever and Quail Forever’s Vice President of Marketing Bob St. Pierre we had to share it.  Do any of you use a Syren?  We wonder how these guns field test and would love to know what you think!

Most of us have been there before, in the field with a girlfriend, wife or mom who has shown an interest in watching the family bird dog work and experiencing the “rush of the flush.” With good intentions all around, we hand over our shotgun for the day...
