Some clients are surprised to have a female guide, but once they get to know me, it's all good. Hell, yeah, I'm tough. You have to be in this job. Hanging stands, dragging animals, hauling client's stuff 20 feet into trees it's what I live for.
I love getting people on big deer. A mature whitetail buck just jacks people up. I think it's important for people to see bad-ass female hunters. Maybe it helps change perceptions a little.
