Getting More Women Involved in Hunting

Historically, hunting has been a sport that has been predominately participated in by men. There have been notable exceptions, of course. Eleanor O’Connor, wife of the famous hunter and outdoor writer, Jack, traveled with him and hunted in many parts of the world, taking her share of game, including some exceptional trophies. Not as well-known to hunters today were Martin and Osa Johnson of the early to mid-1900’s. Together they traveled to many places that seemed extremely exotic and especially dangerous to most Americans of their day. Osa studied, filmed and hunted big game with Martin in such places as East and Central Africa, the South Pacific Islands and British North Borneo.

Today’s outdoor TV shows have produced an increasing number of lady hunters whose names are known to most fans of these programs. Tiffany Lakosky, Brenda Valentine, Candy Kisky and Vicki Cianciarulo have become household names among those who enjoy watching others take big game on their home screens.

But when hunting season arrives in most parts of the world, it is the men who comprise the bulk of the license buyers. There are many factors that contribute to this, with the traditional role of women as the primary care-giver to children probably being first and foremost. I would suggest that many more women could, and should  become involved in hunting. I have no doubt that there are many ladies who have given it serious thought, but have been precluded from this wonderful sport - either because they didn’t know how to approach the subject, or the men in their lives didn’t take the initiative to show them how.

 BREAKING DOWN OLD TABOOS

How many of us have heard that “it’s bad luck to have a woman in hunting camp!”? Probably as many as have heard, “It’s bad luck to bring a banana on a fishing boat!” Even as I write this, I know there are some who are nodding their heads in hearty agreement, and will defend both of these ideas to the death. But logic, common sense and the experiences of many would show that these old taboos are without a truthful basis.

Many women are excellent marksmen, have perfect vision and hearing, and can follow the blood trail of a wounded animal as well or better than most men. Beyond that, they have a love of the outdoors, an appreciation of wild animals and can learn the basics of woodsmanship equal to their male counterparts.

Aside from possibly lacking the physical strength to perform some of the more rigorous tasks that may be involved in hunting, women can learn and apply all the skills necessary to being a successful hunter just as well as a man who has never hunted before. Anyone who disagrees need only to look to the women mentioned in the previous paragraphs for proof.

Perhaps the greatest hindrance to more women being involved in hunting is men who still hold to the idea that it is a man’s sport and no place for a woman. It’s time to realize that hunting can, and should be just as available and rewarding to ...
